Self-aware, self-adaptive and self-expressive autonomic components, running within environments which are called “ensembles”, have been proposed to handle open-ended, highly parallel, massively distributed systems that can span millions of nodes with complex interactions and behaviors.
ASCENS addressed the development of languages, methods and tools for covering the whole engineering life cycle of such systems. The focus of the project is on theoretical
foundations and models for reliable and predictable system behavior
while exploiting the possibilities of highly dynamic, autonomic
Pragmatic case studies
Generation of robot swarm with both autonomous and collective behavior.
New autonomic clouds with resource-aware cloud computing.
Goal oriented e-Vehicles that are fully aware of its own, its neighbors’ and its environment’s resources.
