Abstract

When systems become smarter they have to cope with faults occurring during operation in an intelligent way. For example, an autonomous vehicle has to react appropriately in case of a fault occurring during driving on a highway in order to assure safety for passengers and other humans in its surrounding. Hence, there is a need for fail-operational systems that extend the concept of fail-safety. In this paper, we introduce a method that relies on rules for controlling a system. The rules specify the behavior of the system including behavioral redundancies. In addition, the method provides a runtime execution engine that selects the rules accordingly to reach a certain goal. In addition, we present a language and an implementation of the method and discuss its capabilities using a case study from the mobile robotics domain. In particular, we show how the rule-based fail-operational system can adapt to a fault occurring at runtime.
