Purpose and goal

SafeCOP is an European project that targets cyberphysical systems-of-systems whose safe cooperation relies on wireless communication. In particular, SafeCOP will provide an approach to the safety assurance of such systems in the healthcare, maritime, vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure sectors. No single responsible stakeholder can be identified in these scenarios. This means that safe cooperation relies on wireless communication and security is an important concern.

Expected results and effects

SafeCOP will provide an approach to CO-CPS’ safety assurance, thus allowing their certification and development. In particular, the project will define a runtime manager to detect abnormal behaviors at runtime, triggering, if needed, a safe degraded mode. SafeCOP will also develop methods and tools to certify cooperative functions and offer new standards and regulations to certification authorities and standardization committees.

Planned approach and implementation

The results are demonstrated in 5 case studies: Cooperative moving of empty hospital beds Cooperative bathymetry with boat platoons Vehicle control loss warning Vehicle and roadside units’ interaction Vehicle to infrastructure cooperation for traffic management
