#1: Provide novel architecture concepts to enhance robustness, availability, and efficiency of safety-relevant systems while preserving the functional safety in FEVs.
The main objective of the SafeAdapt project is to enrich networked embedded systems in e-vehicles with adaptivity, while preserving functional and non-functional requirements – especially functional safety. Therefore, SafeAdapt provides the so-called SafeAdapt Platform Core which enables the enhancement of networked embedded systems with runtime adaptation. The SafeAdapt Platform Core provides a novel architecture for adaptive safety-relevant systems. By the use of the SafeAdapt Platform Core the reliability and flexibility of these systems is improved by encapsulating the main adaptation mechanisms. To cope with the increasing complexity of the systems in the domains addressed by SafeAdapt, the SafeAdapt Platform Core provides scalable methods and techniques for controlled adaptation and reconfiguration.
The aim is to enhance safety-relevant networked embedded systems targeted for FEVs with generic concepts for failure handling and adaptivity based on dynamic reallocation of functions. Thereby, enabling
- Adaptation due to failure (e.g. very fast system recovery after hardware failure),
- System optimisation during runtime (e.g. joint resource usage, to save costs and energy), and
- Adaptation to enable the extension of the system with improved features.
