Risk Assessment in Autonomous System of Systems - A Review


Publication Type:



We are witnessing a fast technological and industrial advances in the domain of autonomous and cooperating systems. It is believed that in the near future, fully autonomous and cooperating systems are going to become our reality, with helping to increase the production efficiency and to decrease (potentially completely replace) human effort in harmful environments. In order to make this happen, we need to make sure that critical properties such safety and security are guaranteed. Moreover, it is not sufficient anymore to analyse and guarantee these properties independently in the development process, as it is case now, but we have to be able to address safety and security within a joint effort. Recent research has already pointed to their independencies and ways how they affect each other.In this report we provide insight into the state-of-the-art on safety and security approaches provided in the literature. We overview the most common approaches and methods used to provide reasoning about these properties, as well as we check latest updates in standards related to these properties.
