Speaker details and an updated programme for this event are now available:
2 - Ireri Ibarra - Automation in road transportation and its implications on user safety and cyber-security
5 - John Fox - From static safety cases to active safety management- do we need a new strategy for autonomous agents
This seminar considers the safety implications of autonomous systems, i.e. systems which are capable of operation without human intervention and which can perform sophisticated tasks by themselves or in conjunction with other systems.
As well as UAVs and driverless trains, there is a new breed of autonomous systems entering the consumer space. These include cars with automatic functions, driverless vehicles, and aerial drones.
Some of these devices will eventually be mixing with or used by humans. How will people interact with such systems? How can we be confident in their operation? How do these systems achieve the level of safety required? What standards apply? Who will certify or approve them?
This seminar seeks to identify the issues and explore possible solutions.
