Our society keeps growing with a large number of complicated machines and systems, while we are spending our diverse lives. The number of aged people has been increasing in the society. It is more likely than ever that we are involved in dangers, accidents, crimes, and disasters. Securing and supporting our daily life, building reliable infrastructures against large scale disasters, and preventing unexpected human errors are crucial issues in our highly developed complex society. The systems theory can provide qmodelling, decision analysis and management for safety and securityq as well as qfault detection and reliable control for the design of fail-safe, fool-proof machines and systemsq. If the human nature is analyzed and treated properly in the process of designing machines and systems, we could create safer, more reliable, and more intelligent machines and systems that can support our society and give us no anxiety and no uneasiness. qHybrid systems modelling human behavioursq and qservices for humanq could give proper examples in this respect. qRobotics for safety and securityq, qsafety recovery systemsq, qvisual surveillance and monitoringq, and qtransportation systems for safety and securityq, those will provide powerful tools for safe, secure, and reliable systems to achieve peaceful society.
