Networked Control Systems Tolerant to faults
The aim of the project is to explore research opportunities in the direction of
distributed control systems in order to enhance the performance of diagnostics
and fault tolerant control systems. This will lead to an improvement in the
intensive use of NeCS technologies for the reactivity, autonomy and monitoring of
large scale systems. The systems under consideration in the framework of this
project can be considered as a distributed network of nodes operating under
highly decentralised control, but unified in accomplishing complex system-wide
goals. One of the key factors in designing such a complex system is that both the
physical subsystem and the control part have to be designed together in an
integrated manner. The systems developed in this project will be modular,
adaptive, able to operate autonomously, and also possibly be reconfigurable. The
implementation of these concepts is achieved by using the technologies of
wireless networks, embedded systems, nomad components, electronics tags, etc...
Finally, the main contribution of the NeCST project in the field of embedded
systems is to propose different means of improving the embedded component safety.
For this purpose, algorithms and procedures will be developed that are able to
detect, at an early stage, anomalies (variances or irregularities in the embedded
networks and in the embedded equipments) and to switch to the fault tolerant
control strategy and/or providing predictive and real-time maintenance.
