Motivation

In this Dagstuhl Seminar, we seek to examine how individual autonomous machines (e.g. vehicles or robots of any kind) and collectives thereof have to behave in complex physical environments such that acceptable safety and performance guarantees can be verifiably met. Machines, collectives, and the environment are subjected to uncertainty (e.g. changes, defects) and risk. Furthermore, complex environments involve interactions with human-controlled machines, humans, animals, and valuable assets not to be harmed or damaged.

To provide strong guarantees for autonomous mobile collectives in such environments, we have to model them at an appropriate level of abstraction, validate these models, verify desirable properties of these models, and, most importantly, certify these properties of any implementations of these models. A few weeks before the seminar, we will provide all participants with an application challenge, and encourage the researchers to model it, or parts of it, in their formalism of choice. Our aim is to discuss these models, to compare the demonstrated approaches, and to identify commonalities and synergies. During the seminar, the aim is to tightly interact with engineering practitioners. Practitioners will be encouraged to evaluate the crafted models and solutions based on their expertise of the application domain.

This approach will foster sustainable interaction of software and control engineering researchers using continuous models, uncertainty models, and coordination and communication models to reason about autonomous mobile collectives. The aim of the tight interaction with practitioners is to enhance relevant approaches for successful transfer into the engineering practice of autonomous mobile vehicles.
