Artificial Intelligence European certification under Industry 4.0
The capacity of the civilian air traffic system has been stretched to its limits for years, leading to increased delays and flight cancellations. Overcoming these capacity bottlenecks requires a wide of range of efforts. From a technical standpoint, artificial intelligence (AI) could play a key role, such as by enabling more effective air space monitoring or single-pilot operation in cases where regulations require at least two pilots. The issue is that the non-transparency and complexity of many AI systems represents a major challenge for the safe deployment of this technology in the aviation sector. As part of the joint project KIEZ4-0 (A German acronym meaning certified artificial intelligence in the European airspace under Industry 4.0), fortiss is researching concepts with the project partners to determine how the reliability of AI-supported aviation applications, such as single-pilot operation, can be certified. Using a flight mission management application, the project team is also examining what type of formal methods could contribute to the certification of such systems.
