Project Summary

Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) often build complex transportation systems that consist of many components. In that role, OEMs usually also act as an integrator as they purchase components from suppliers to integrate into the transportation system. To lower the cost of the resulting system, OEMs aim to use Commercial-Off-the-Shelf (COTS) components which as mass produced and become integrated into many different systems. Unfortunately, COTS components may not be tailored for the specific task and may not meet security and safety requirements of the target application.*This project investigates how to add safety and security on top of COTS components used in the automotive domain. The industry partner is interested in a monitoring solution as a new feature in its product line that enables safe and secure integration of COTS components in its specialized vehicles.*
