In recent years, autonomic and organic computing have become areas of active research in the informatics community. Both initiatives aim at handling the growing complexity in technical systems by focusing on adaptation and self-optimisation capabilities. A promising application for organic concepts is the control of road traffic signals in urban areas. This(More)
Organic Computing (OC) assumes that current trends and recent developments in computing, like growing interconnectedness and increasing computational power, pose new challenges to designers and users. In order to tackle the upcoming demands, OC has the vision to make systems more lifelike (organic) by endowing them with abilities such as self-organisation,(More)
Due to steadily increasing mobility and the resulting rising traffic demands, serious congestion problems can be observed in many cities. One promising approach to alleviate the congestion effects is the coordination of the network's traffic signals in response to the traffic flow. The recently introduced Decentralised Progressive Signal Systems approach is(More)
Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) are a logical step towards integrating classical IT systems further into physical or virtual surroundings. In consequence this means that CPS will be targets for new security threats, e.g. by manipulating the system both at the IT system level and within its surroundings. In this paper, we first discuss these new types of(More)
