Abstract [en]

In manufacturing and automation systems, there is an increasing need for switching to new paradigms instead of merely upgrading the technological systems. More specifically, manufacturing and automation systems should move towards holonic and intelligent paradigms, featuring a set of advantages with respect to legacy systems based on traditional approaches. In this position paper, we address those advantages and describe how to apply the basic principles of holonic systems in intelligent information systems with a focus on real-time applications. We also survey the basic concepts and reference taxonomy, providing an overview of the expected transition from traditional manufacturing and automation systems to holonic intelligent systems.

Abstract [en]

This White Paper follows the first one produced in 2017 by the IEEE Symbiotic Autonomous Systems Initiative (SAS)1 , extending it to address updated technologies and cover additional topics due to the evolution of science and technology. Additional white papers will follow because this is an area in continuous development.  

The first examples of symbioses are already available in a number of areas, and even now, these are impacting our economic system and way of life. The IEEE SAS Initiative takes a 360° view based on technology and standardization—the foundation of IEEE—and invites all interested constituencies to contribute complementary point of views, including economic, regulatory, and sociocultural perspectives. The transformation fostered by technology evolution in all paths of life requires planning and education by current and future players. Another goal of the initiative is to consider the future of education, given that these symbioses transform its meaning, making it both shared and distributed.  

In this respect, the aims of this White Paper are to further develop the ideas presented in the first white paper: (1) to highlight impacts that are clearly identifiable today, and (2) to indicate emerging issues, thus providing a starting point to those involved in making public policy to understand the technical fundamentals, their evolution and their potential implications.  

Note that this White Paper is intended to be self-contained, without requiring the reader to read the previous white paper.

Abstract [en]

The present article focuses on the research and development planning for innovative railway systems. Within such a general framework, the specific objectives of the research have been defined within the framework of a large Intelligent Railway System project in Hungary. Our theoretical research work at the university is combined with practical experience gained at the Hungarian State Railways. In the course of this research work, the development of an intelligent railway system has been investigated by leveraging on the fruitful cooperation between academic and industrial partners, in order to promote the application and integration possibilities of the development results, as well as the introduction of innovative components in the railway system. In such a context, this article discusses the research plan, preliminary and long-term expected results, sharing objectives and experiences with the aim of providing novel views in an extremely current and challenging field of research.

Abstract [en]

This book addresses the latest approaches to holistic Cyber-Physical System (CPS) resilience in real-world industrial applications. Ensuring the resilience of CPSs requires cross-discipline analysis and involves many challenges and open issues, including how to address evolving cyber-security threats.

The book describes emerging paradigms and techniques from two main viewpoints: CPSs’ exposure to new threats, and CPSs’ potential to counteract them. Further, the chapters address topics ranging from risk modeling to threat management and mitigation. The book offers a clearly structured, highly accessible resource for a diverse readership, including graduate students, researchers and industry practitioners who are interested in evaluating and ensuring the resilience of CPSs in both the development and assessment stages.

Abstract [en]

Modern railways feature increasingly complex embedded computing systems for surveillance that are moving towards fully wireless smart-sensors. Those systems are aimed at monitoring system status from a physical-security viewpoint, in order to detect intrusions and other environmental anomalies. However, the same systems used for physical-security surveillance are vulnerable to cyber-security threats, since they feature distributed hardware and software architectures often interconnected by 'open networks', like wireless channels and the internet. In this paper, we show how the integrated approach to security, privacy and dependability (SPD) in embedded systems provided by the SHIELD framework (developed within the EU funded pSHIELD and nSHIELD research projects) can be applied to railway surveillance systems in order to measure and improve their SPD level. SHIELD implements a layered architecture (node, network, middleware and overlay) and orchestrates SPD mechanisms based on ontology models, appropriate metrics and composability. The results of prototypical application to a real-world demonstrator show the effectiveness of SHIELD and justify its practical applicability in industrial settings.

Abstract [en]

Due to the increasingly fast technological advancement of the ICT world, 'hi-tech' industries feel a growing need to open to the external world of research and innovation. The usage of external innovation sources allows overcoming the limits of internal resources in terms of capacities, skills and creativity. With respect to the traditional concept of "Closed Innovation", that is the innovation constrained within the internal R&D departments, the "Open Innovation" paradigm leverages on tools that enable importing external resources, thus boosting the quality and quantity of innovative technological solutions. In this paper the basic concepts and the possible "Open Innovation" applications will be presented, starting from the introduction of the paradigm as invented by Henry William Chesbrough in 2003. Furthermore, methodologies and computer tools will be described that are widely adopted to apply the paradigm to industrial settings, as well as the possible barriers to its implementation. Lastly, given the importance of universities, research centers and other companies as external sources for Open Innovation, some pointers will be provided to the selection process of technology innovation partners.

Abstract [en]

In recent years, there has been an increasing interest in the adoption of drones for monitoring a variety of infrastructures. Infrastructure monitoring systems are widely adopted to detect faults before they can lead to severe failures. They can be found in a number of civil structures, including bridges and viaducts, and also in many other applications of smart-maintenance, prognostics, health and security monitoring. This paper explores the usage of drones in railways for early warning, situation assessment and decision support applications. It leverages already available technological and research achievements for drone-based surveillance. The aim of the study is to preliminarily evaluate drone capabilities in a railway monitoring framework including structural faults and security threat detection as well as investigation on the consequences of natural hazards and intentional attacks. © 2016 IEEE.
