As Industrial Cyber-Physical Systems (ICPS) become more connected and widely-distributed, often operating in safety-critical environments, we require innovative approaches to detect and diagnose the faults that occur in them. We profile fault identification and diagnosis techniques employed in the aerospace, automotive and industrial control domains. Each of these sectors have adopted particular methods to meet their differing fault diagnostic needs. By examining both theoretical presentations as well as case studies from production environments, we present a profile of the current approaches being employed.
