Safe and Secure Autonomous Robotic Systems

Photo of Claire TomlinAbstract:

As robotic systems play an increasingly large role in a variety of life-critical applications, it becomes imperative to ensure that such systems operate in a safe and secure manner. System designers have to ensure that the control and learning algorithms that are deployed on such systems will not cause the system to harm individuals or property, and furthermore, that such systems are resilient to faults and cyber-attacks. These challenges are further exacerbated when considering teams of robotic systems that are interacting with each other in complex ways. This panel will feature four leading experts in the area of safety and security of autonomous robotic systems: Prof. Claire Tomlin (UC Berkeley), Prof. Xinyan Deng (ME, Purdue), Prof. Inseok Hwang (AAE, Purdue), and Prof. Shaoshuai Mou (AAE, Purdue). These experts will provide their perspectives on the current state of the art, identify open challenges, and describe their vision for the future of safe and secure robotic systems.
