In recent years, the need to address the multi-faceted issue of AI governance with safety-relevant, ethical and legal implications at an international level is becoming increasingly itical. Simultaneously, the international community is facing a wide array of global challenges for which the United Nations initiated an agenda with 17 ambitious...

The complex socio-technological debate underlying safetycritical and ethically relevant issues pertaining to AI development and deployment extends across heterogeneous research subfields and involves in part conflicting positions. In this context, it seems expedient to generate a minimalistic joint transdisciplinary basis disambiguating the...

Steady progresses in the AI field create enriching possibilities for society while simultaneously posing new complex challenges of ethical, legal and safety-relevant nature. In order to achieve an efficient human-centered governance of artificial intelligent systems, it has been proposed to harness augmented utilitarianism (AU), a novel non...

Due to significant technological advances leading to an expansion of the possible solution space of more or less autonomously operating artificial intelligent systems in real-world environments, society faces the challenge to specify the goals of these systems while jointly covering ethical conceptions and legal frameworks. In this paper, we...

The future of manned submarines is currently in question as a result of rapid developments in autonomy in other fields (e.g. autonomous cars). Therefore, the feasibility of an unmanned submarine, basically a large unmanned underwater vehicle (UUV), as a replacement for a conventional diesel-electric submarine (SSK), was investigated....

This article proposes a safety check extension to Adaptive Cruise Control systems where the critical headway time is estimated in real-time. This critical headway time estimate enables automated reaction to crisis circumstances such as when a preceding vehicle performs an emergency brake. We introduce a method for critical headway approximation...

The trend in modern day observation systems is towards distributed (often mobile) systems that are able to automatically adapt themselves in dynamic situations. They have to make most of their resources to maximise the system's effectiveness, all at reasonable cost. Currently, there is no formal framework of reasoning to design and implement the...

We devise a distributed asynchronous stochastic ǫgradient-based algorithm to enable a network of computing and communicating nodes to solve a constrained discrete-time time-varying stochastic convex optimization problem. Each node updates its own decision variable only once every discrete time step. Under some assumptions (among which, strong...

To reduce the amount of data transfer in networked systems measurements are usually taken only when an event occurs rather than periodically in time. However, a fundamental assessment on the response of estimation algorithms receiving event sampled measurements is not available. This research presents such an analysis when new measurements are...

This article addresses reinforcement learning problems based on factored Markov decision processes (MDPs) in which the agent must choose among a set of candidate abstractions, each build up from a different combination of state components. We present and evaluate a new approach that can perform effective abstraction selection that is more...

Multilevel fusion systems need provisions to optimally schedule scarce processing and communication resources. To this end, we explore the idea of using utility-based metrics to optimize the run-time operation of a computation and communication constrained multilevel system, including automatic decision support measures such as course of action...

The research in this paper is inspired by a vision of intelligent vehicles that autonomously move along motorways: they join and leave trains of vehicles (platoons), overtake other vehicles, etc. We propose a multi-objective evolutionary algorithm based on NEAT and SPEA2 that evolves highlevel controllers for such intelligent vehicles. The...

Congestion is a major problem in large, urbanized areas. Intelligent transport solutions aim to reduce this problem. In general, traffic is monitored with the use of sensors, the resulting data are processed, a traffic state is estimated, and a control measure is computed and implemented. The availability and the quality of the data and the...

The paper addresses intelligent sensor networks (ISNs) as a special version of networked wireless robotics. The success of these networks is partly explained by the technical advances, but as well by cutting down costs of these networks. Using a functional breakdown of intelligent ISNs, the trends of the various functions are discussed. The...

This paper presents the rationale and design of the DynaMap, a Local Dynamic Map (LDM) for infrastructure-based cooperative applications on Road side and Central ITS Stations. Most LDMs are developed primarily for use in cooperative vehicles. The requirements for infrastructure-based applications are different from vehicle-based applications...

To reach their goals in the most effective way a team of entities needs to have a high situation awareness. In addition, the awareness needs to be shared among the entities and preferably identical in order to coordinate their actions. Unfortunately, optimal identical shared awareness is often not possible due to limited communication...
