Battery (sub)systems are used in many systems (systems-of-systems) in the Internet of Things (IoT) ranging from everyday ones (e.g., mobile systems, home appliances, etc.) to safety-critical and/or mission-critical ones (e.g., electrical vehicles, unmanned aerial vehicles, autonomous underwater vehicles, etc.). As these systems become more interconnected with each other and their environments and batteries become more energy dense, the safety risks of using batteries increase. To guarantee…
