Redundancy of integrated systems has always been used in order to increase vehicle's safety. Some new technologies are however too expensive to be redundant. This paper proposes a new way to preserve the safety by enabling a kind of complementarity between different chassis systems. Optimization-based control allocation redistribution algorithms are used in order to find the best way to combine conflicting systems. Results have shown that one system can take over another one when a failure occurs making the control logic fault-tolerant and reconfigurable. This better suits future cars as additional chassis systems are intended to be more integrated.
