  • Publication number: 20240053766
    Abstract: The problem of ensuring safety and work efficiency for the actions of a control target is addressed in an environment in which different types of control systems coexist. A safety control server controls the actions of respective control targets in differing systems and includes an action adjustment unit that, for each control target of differing control systems, outputs to a control target an action adjustment instruction for adjusting the action of that control target when a contention occurs in which the action of that control target deviates from an assumed control result. An action plan adjustment unit, when the adjustment of the action satisfies a prescribed condition, adjusts an action plan indicating an action rule for achieving a function and avoiding a contention in a control target; and a safety rule adjustment unit adjusts a safety rule indicating an action rule for avoiding a contention in the control target.
