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 life-like (organic) by endowing them with abilities such as self-organisation, self-configuration, self-repair, or adaptation. Distributing computational intelligence by introducing concepts like self-organisation… Expand
Comparison of Self-Aware and Organic Computing Systems
TLDR
This paper is written to compare self-awareness and organic computing by discussing their definitions, properties and architecture. Expand
Organic Computing in the Spotlight
TLDR
There seems to be a need for an updated definition of the term "Organic Computing", of desired properties of technical, organic systems, and the objectives of the Organic Computing initiative. Expand
Incremental design of adaptive systems
TLDR
A meta-design process to develop technology-driven embedded systems in a unified way in order to handle the growing complexity in technical systems by focusing on adaptation and self-optimisation capabilities is presented. Expand
Quantitative Organic Computing
TLDR
This chapter tries to define key terms precisely, wherever possible quantitatively, i.e. by formulas resulting in concrete numerical values which are then accessible to an automated analysis and steer the system under observation and control towards an optimised performance. Expand
Dealing with Hardware-related Disturbances in Organic Computing Systems
TLDR
A problem statement and various requirements an OC system must fulfil in order to increase its robustness against hardware-related disturbances is formulated and a working plan for a PhD project concerning the investigation of several aspects of the previously motivated problem statement is presented. Expand
Building Organic Computing Systems
TLDR
This work has developed a generic multi-level control architecture with the task to sense and analyse the context of the system and to derive suitable control actions. Expand
An Organic Computing Approach to Self-Organizing Robot Ensembles
TLDR
This work presents the work on how autonomous, adaptive robot ensembles can benefit from OC technology, and details the architectural concept, examples of individual self-optimisation as well as of the optimisation of collaborative efforts, and shows how the user can control the ensemble at multiple levels of abstraction. Expand
An Organic Computing Perspective on Self-Improving System Interweaving at Runtime
TLDR
In this paper, the challenges entailed in 'interwoven systems' are dig deeper and some of the necessary aspects to developing architectures that will address these challenges are discussed. Expand
"Know Thyself" - Computational Self-Reflection in Intelligent Technical Systems
TLDR
A definition of "computational self-reflection", an architectural concept, and the potential benefit by means of three exemplary application scenarios are discussed and a basic research agenda is drafted. Expand
Addressing challenges beyond classic control with organic computing
TLDR
Challenges resulting from the growing complexity of technical systems are discussed and solution perspectives are derived by utilising concepts from the domain of self-organising and self-optimising systems, in particular from the Organic Computing and Autonomic Computing initiatives. Expand

TLDR
A generic observer-controller architecture is proposed as a framework for designing OC systems, and it is shown how to use this architecture at the example of a traffic light controller. Expand
Organic Computing - A New Vision for Distributed Embedded Systems
TLDR
Major challenges for organic system design arise from the conflicting requirements to have systems that are at the same time robust and adaptive, having sufficient degrees of freedom for showing self-x properties but being open for human intervention and operating with respect to appropriate rules and constraints to prevent the occurrence of undesired emergent behavior. Expand
Towards a generic observer/controller architecture for Organic Computing
TLDR
This paper focuses on the design of a generic system architecture which allows for self-organisation but at the same time enables adequate reactions to control the – sometimes completely unexpected – emerging global behaviour of these self- Organised technical systems. Expand
Organic computing: on the feasibility of controlled emergence
TLDR
An introduction to the new research area of Organic Computing is given and it is shown that the notion of emergence, a central phenomenon in Organic Compting, is a typical bottom-up effect with the interesting property of generating order from randomness. Expand
Investigation of Generic Observer/Controller Architectures in a Traffic Scenario
TLDR
Different distribution possibilities of the generic o/c architecture and the resulting collaboration and communication patterns in a traffic scenario are investigated. Expand
Towards a quantitative notion of self-organisation
TLDR
The state of the art of OC is summarized and a definition of self-organisation is introduced that addresses the problem of designingSelf-organising technical systems, which is the main objective of the OC initiative. Expand
Using Organic Computing to Control Bunching Effects
TLDR
This paper shows how to control and prevent global, collective, unwanted behaviour of groups of lifts, based on observations of the local behaviour of lift cabins, in order to validate the generic observer/controller architecture. Expand
Dynamic Control of Network Protocols - A New Vision for Future Self-organising Networks
TLDR
This paper introduces an adaptive and automated network control system for the dynamic and self-organised control of protocol parameters by using the concepts of Organic and Autonomic Computing. Expand
The Vision of Autonomic Computing
TLDR
A 2001 IBM manifesto noted the almost impossible difficulty of managing current and planned computing systems, which require integrating several heterogeneous environments into corporate-wide computing systems that extend into the Internet. Expand
A Reference Architecture for Self-organizing Service-Oriented Computing
TLDR
This paper proposes a reference architecture to establish controlled self-organization in a service-oriented environment with respect to existing reference architectures for SOC and self- Organization. Expand
