Adaptivity will be a key enabler of future embedded computer systems and systems of systems, while providing protection against faults and attacks. The ADMORPH use-cases already now give great examples of the potential of adaptive systems, no matter if we look at the radar surveillance, the subway transport systems or the autonomous aerospace systems. In all three cases, adaptivity provides the necessary means to develop reliable and fault-tolerant systems despite immense complexity and stringent requirements on the extra-functional behaviour. But of course, these three use-cases are clearly not the full picture and many other complex systems may profit from adaptivity, as well.
A large initiative in the Augsburg region, the AI Production Network Augsburg (link in German only), has recently been started to explore the future of AI-based automated production systems — systems that share many of the requirements and challenges of our use-cases. We will present the methods, techniques and tools developed within ADMORPH to our regional academic and industrial partners. Together, we will explore their applicability to the broader context of production technology.
