Autonomic Service-Component Ensembles

Project description

Self-Awareness in Autonomic Systems Future software-intensive systems, such as sensor networks, power grids, satellite and robot swarms, will generally exhibit a number of characteristic features:

  • Massive numbers of nodes, nodes with complex behavior, or complex interactions between nodes.
  • Operation in open and non-deterministic environments with variable network topology.
  • Need for adaptation, e.g., to changing environments and requirements.
We call this future generation of software-intensive systems ensembles. The potentially huge impact - both positive and negative - of ensembles means that we need to understand ways to reliably and predictably model, design, and program them.
Although there is a lot of research in this area, so far no theoretically well-founded technique for building ensembles exists. The goal of the ASCENS project is to develop such a method and to demonstrate its feasibility in three important application domains: robot swarms, cloud computing and e-mobility.
