Functional Safety Impacts in Autonomous and Self-Learning Control Systems: Part 1-4
This series will run for 4 weeks on 25th May, 1st June, 8th June and 15th June and you can register for all 4 using this one link.
Adaptive Control, Machine Learning and AI are creating an inflexion point for Automated and Autonomous Systems. Ubiquitous connectivity enables deployment of these systems at scale enabling new businesses and transforming others.
These new systems and the underlying techniques have also created growing concerns about the safety of complex electronic and software controlled systems. Industries have developed standards for electronics and software and there is growing understanding that systems have to be designed to ensure that the user cannot put the systems in an unsafe state no matter how they interact with the system. Emerging techniques and standards around the Safety of Intended Function are being developed to ensure that the potential hazards of people interacting with automation are understood and managed by the design.
These new Control Systems with unprecedented levels of autonomy are being deployed in many areas where safety is critical. New engineering tools and techniques are needed to extend existing methodologies to manage complex systems and ensure that the design meets its functional requirements with proven robustness to failure modes and noise factors. Building on these capabilities enables the engineer to question whether the design itself can create a hazard or whether there are emergent properties of the system that could create a hazard.
Anyone who has worked in delivery of complex control systems understand the huge potential of Autonomous and Self-Learning techniques and that they challenge us to design in and prove safety.
This series will provide a cross industry platform to share ideas and techniques to delivery safe autonomous systems that include learning as part of their function.
