Omnipresent networked sensor and actuator systems intended to improve our daily live will only become acceptable to society if they are dependable and trustworthy. To date, it is not possible to accurately predict important aspects such as latency of data collection, robustness against faults, and lifetime. Moreover, systems are not robust against changes in the system and its environment during operation. To achieve dependable systems, we need integrated progress along four lines of working: integral system-level modeling, robust system architectures and deployments, run-time adaptation techniques to cope with dynamic changes and unforeseen circumstances, and design support targeting robustness and dynamic adaptation.
