Adaptation and Reconfiguration

METIS (Dependable Cooperative Systems for Public Safety)

Objectives: This work package addresses the issues of adapting and reconfiguring the system in case of subsystem failures and/or confidence issues with respect to situational awareness.

System reconfiguration and adaptation can be triggered by, for example, insufficient quality of information, or failing or newly available sources of information. Integrated system-level reasoning about identified causes and possible solutions by system adaptation or (re)configuration forms a major challenge.

Combining adaptability and reconfiguration with continuous, guaranteed levels of dependability adds a further challenge. WP4 will provide methods and tools to perform this sequential diagnosis and reconfiguration process in an ad-hoc, dynamic, and on-line context.
