  • Dobson, Simon; Neely, Steve; Nixon, Paddy (Springer, 2006)
    The increasingly dynamic nature of resource discovery and binding in modern large-scale distributed and mobile systems poses significant challenges for existing middleware platforms. Future platforms must provide strong ...
  • Gaudin, Benoit; Vassev, Emil; Hinchey, Mike; Nixon, Paddy (Association for Computing Machinery, 2011)
    This work presents an approach to self-healing that deals with un-handled exceptions within an executing program. More precisely, we propose an approach based on control theory that automatically disables system functionalities ...
  • Vassev, Emil; Hinchey, Mike; Nixon, Paddy (Association for Computing Machinery, 2010)
    We present a technological convergence approach to developing sensor networks capable of self-management. We use ASSL (Autonomic System Specification Language) to formally develop autonomous intelligent sensor nodes and ...
  • Gaudin, Benoit; Vassev, Emil; Hinchey, Mike; Nixon, Paddy; Coelho, Garcia J.; Maalej, Walid (Szkoła Wyższa Psychologii Społecznej (SWPS), 2012)
    One of the main objectives of self-adaptive systems is to reduce maintenance costs through automatic adaptation. Self-healing is a self-adapting property that helps systems return to a normal state after a fault or ...
  • Vassev, Emil; Hinchey, Mike; Nixon, Paddy (IEEE Computer Society, 2010)
    Intelligent swarms draw their inspiration from biology where many simple entities act independently, but when grouped, they appear to be highly organized. NASA is currently investigating swarm-based technologies for the ...
  • Dobson, Simon; Sterritt, Roy; Nixon, Paddy; Hinchey, Mike (IEEE Computer Society, 2010)
    Efforts since 2001 to design self-managing systems have yielded many impressive achievements, yet the original vision of autonomic computing remains unfulfilled. Researchers must develop a comprehensive systems engineering ...
  • Vassev, Emil; Hinchey, Mike; Nixon, Paddy (Association for Computing Machinery, 2010)
    We target effective home automation based on wireless sensor networks. ASSL (Autonomic System Specification Language) is used to formally specify and generate prototype models for wireless sensor networks controlling a ...
  • Vassev, Emil; Hinchey, Mike; Gaudin, Benoit; Nixon, Paddy (Association for Computing Machinery, 2011)
    Autonomic Service-Component Ensembles (ASCENS) is a class of multi-agent systems formed as mobile, intelligent and open-ended swarms of special autonomic service components capable of local and distributed reasoning. Such ...
  • Clarke, Siobhán; Fitzgerald, Brian; Nixon, Paddy; Pohl, Klaus; Ryan, Kevin; Sinclair, David; Thiel, Steffen (SAE International, 2008)
    The amount and complexity of software in automotive systems is constantly increasing. Today’s luxury cars include numerous electronic control units. A large part of the functionality of these units is driven by software. In ...
  • Williamson, Graham; Cellai, Davide; Dobson, Simon; Nixon, Paddy (Springer, 2009)
    Many modern network applications, including sensor networks and MANETs, have dynamic topologies that reflect processes occurring in the outside world. These dynamic processes are a challenge to traditional information ...
  • Coyle, Lorcan; Neely, Steve; Rey, Gaetan; Stevenson, Graeme; Sullivan, Mark; Dobson, Simon; Nixon, Paddy (Kaist Press, 2007)
    Systems for home automation can make a vital contribution to the wellbeing of individuals requiring moderate amounts of support for day-to-day living. Existing systems suffer both from competing and often closed standards ...
  • Gaudin, Benoit; Nixon, Paddy (Association for Computing Machinery, 2012)
    The Supervisory Control Theory (SCT) introduced by Ramadge and Wonham offers a framework for the control of Discrete Event Systems. In this paper, we formalize some concepts about corrective software maintenance within ...
