Trustworthy Autonomous Systems

Software-based autonomous systems must increasingly operate in unfamiliar surroundings, and in the process make instant and reliable decisions. As humans, we expect these decisions to be easy to comprehend, transparent and sophisticated enough to deal with problems like faulty operation, technical outages and targeted attacks.

Against this backdrop, we develop scalable, reliable software architectures for sensor data and information fusion applications. We conduct research into new approaches and methods that allow developers to easily create reliable cognitive systems. The primary fields of application include autonomous vehicles, small aircraft swarms and surgery robots. We test our technologies on a digital test field located on the A9 highway near Munich and verify the autonomous driving functionality on the Apollo open source software platform.

As part of these activities, we work on procedure models and methods that development engineers can use with AI technologies for safety-relevant and safety-critical systems, ensuring that the technologies are implemented in line with industry standards such as ISO 26262, DO 178C and IEC 61508. We are thus creating a foundation that will allow companies to one day utilize AI technologies in new, marketable products and services.
