Abstract

Advances on the integration of wireless sensor and actuator networks, as a whole, have contribute to the greater reconfigurability o f s ystems a nd l ower i nstallation c osts with application to supervision of networked control systems. This integration, however, increases some vulnerabilities associated with the physical world and also with the cyber and security world. This trend makes the wireless nodes one of the most vulnerable component of these kind of systems, which can have a major impact on the overall performance of the networked control system. This paper presents an architecture relying on a hierarchical multi-agent system for resilience enhancement, with focus on wireless sensor and actuator networks. The proposed framework was evaluated on an IPv6 test-bed comprising several distributed devices, where performance and communication links health are analyzed. The relevance of the proposed approach is demonstrated by results collected from the test-bed.
