Verifying Autonomous Robots: Challenges and Reflections (Extended Abstract)

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


Autonomous robots such as robot assistants, healthcare robots, industrial robots, autonomous vehicles etc. are being developed to carry out a range of tasks in different environments. The robots need to be able to act autonomously, choosing between a range of activities. They may be operating close to or in collaboration with humans, or in environments hazardous to humans where the robot is hard to reach if it malfunctions. We need to ensure that such robots are reliable, safe and trustworthy. In this talk I will discuss experiences from several projects in developing and applying verification techniques to autonomous robotic systems. In particular we consider: a robot assistant in a domestic house, a robot co-worker for a cooperative manufacturing task, multiple robot systems and robots operating in hazardous environments.
