[en] The work in this Master Thesis contributes to the field of autonomous systems and is looking to explore the possibility of using proactive engines for building autonomous sys- tems. Many approaches to the topic of autonomous systems exist, the contribution to the existing research is the usage of a proactive engine center piece.
The proactive engine developed in Prof. Zampunieris’ research team at the University of Luxembourg is used to monitor and support systems. The proactive behaviour is used to add functionalities and properties to stand-alone systems.
The ability of adding properties to existing systems is pursued in this work. It is investigated if the possibility of using the proactive engine as control unit for autonomous systems is given. The goal is to add all properties to a system such that this system can be denoted as autonomous. This means the proactive engine needs to supervise and manage the system in a way that the required interaction with humans can be reduced to a minimum.
The proactive engine makes use of sensors to monitor the system and its environment. From the gathered data decisions can be taken and the system uses sensors to adapt to its environment and manage itself.
The adapted proactive engine that can serve to add autonomy to existing servers could in the future also serve as control unit for newly designed systems.
