The paper introduces for the first time, to the author's best knowledge, the terminology "smartronics information fusion and integration" of civil and environmental engineering monitoring and protection. For the sake of simplicity, the present paper abbreviates the above-mentioned terminology as "smartronics". The paper illustrates smartronics basic concepts for modular intelligent agents design. The paper exhibits the usefulness of smartronics. The paper also considers how to standardize smartronics for optimal intelligent agents. The proposed standardization covers smartronics fundamental attributes. Smartronics is the term encompassing technical fields that include for example the ones, which have become known widely under the names "smart structures", and "intelligent structures" and known to less extent under the name "adaptronics structures". Smartronics is set to be at the forefront of modern technical, civil, and environmental engineering monitoring and protection fusion. The fusion is achieved partially through proper integration of electronics and civil and environmental engineering monitoring and protection. The fusion is hinged at synthesizing smartronics systems. In other words, it integrates civil and environmental engineering monitoring and protection as smartronics systems for optimal artificial intelligent agents leading to first class information acquisition science and engineering.
