• Objective 1: Robustness against component failures

Hardware component failures may be due to the harsh environment the system operates in, cosmic radiation, physical wear-out, manufacturing defects, etc. ADMORPH will develop technology that aims at prolonging the system lifetime and maximizing the system efficiency during this lifetime under the occurrence of hardware component failures.

  • Objective 2: Robustness against cyber-attacks

Cyber-attacks such as DoS or compromising system components can cause systems to become unreliable and unavailable. In the case of mission- or safety-critical CPS(oS), unavailability can subsequently lead to severe problems. For example, it can pave the way to coordinated attacks, which exploit the physical entanglement of CPS(oS) to cause harm in the physical world. Within ADMORPH, we will develop technology that aims at prolonging the availability of a system while under attack.

  • Objective 3: Robustness of adaptation methodologies

ADMORPH will develop methodologies for dynamic application task coordination, foremost by means of application task re-mapping techniques, to achieve fault and intrusion tolerance of CPS(oS).

  • Objective 4: Efficient engineering of robust, adaptive systems

The ADMORPH project aims at developing a holistic and efficient approach for systematically designing, analyzing, and run-time managing robust, adaptive CPS(oS).

  • Objective 5: Industrial evaluation

The methodologies, methods and tools developed within ADMORPH will be evaluated using three industrial use cases. As our application domains, we will use: (i) radar surveillance systems, (ii) autonomous aerospace systems, and (iii) transport management systems. These domains have been chosen as representative cyber-physical systems of systems of different sizes, with highly variant requirements on the safety, reliability, energy efficiency and security, and with a high economic impact.
