Purpose and goal

The objectives for Safe Cooperating Cyber-Physical Systems using Wireless Communication (SafeCOP) are: -Develop a safety-assurance framework for CO-CPS -Develop a reference ´Runtime Manager´ architecture to support the engineering and certification of CO-CPS. -Extend the current wireless protocols for safe and secure cooperation. -Contribute to new standards and regulations. -Demonstrate the usefulness of SafeCOP concepts in target applications

Expected results and effects

SafeCOP will provide -an approach to the safety assurance of CO-CPS, -extend current wireless technologies -contribute to new standards and regulations, SafeCOP brings clear benefits in all addressed areas: automotive, maritime, healthcare and robotics. The advantages include lower certification costs, increased trustworthiness of wireless communication, better management of increasing complexity, reduced effort for verification and validation, lower total system costs, shorter time to market and increased market share.

Planned approach and implementation

SafeCOP (Safe Cooperating Cyber-Physical Systems using Wireless Communication) will establish a safety assurance approach, a platform architecture, and tools for cost-efficient and practical certification of cooperating cyber-physical systems (CO-CPS). SafeCOP targets safety-related CO-CPS characterized by use of wireless communication, multiple stakeholders, dynamic system definitions, and unpredictable operating environments. In this scenario, no single stakeholder has the overall responsibility over the resulted system-of-systems.
