Abstract

High reliability is an important characteristic of Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS). New CPS components/subsystems have to be developed for the detection, isolation, recovery and prevention of failures and external attacks. To address this challenge, we propose a multi-agent-based subsystem architecture that can detect and prevent CPS hardware components' failures. The architecture comprises of several types of agents with well-defined behaviors which cooperate to fulfil the goal of the CPS subsystem. We evaluate the performance of the proposed approach using reliability metrics for a CPS aimed at monitoring ambient and environmental parameters.
