Welcome to the Local4Global Project

Within Local4Global we take the view that if the powerful attributes of Natural SoS (NSoS) were possible to be transferred and embedded into Technical SoS (TSoS), this would lead not only to more effective and efficient TSoS operations but, most importantly, it would lead to TSoS that are significantly easier, safer and more reliable and economical to design, deploy, operate, monitor and re-configure. This is actually the main objective of Local4Global:

to develop, test and evaluate a new groundbreaking, generic and fully-functional methodology/system for controlling TSoS where – as in the NSoS case – autonomous constituent systems reacting and interacting depending only on their local environment, optimize the emerging TSoS performance at the global level.

This system will be deployed and extensively tested and evaluated in 2 real-life TSoS Use Cases, a Traffic TSoS Use Case and an Efficient Building TSoS Use Case.
