Eye movements analysis has great potential for understanding operator behaviour in many safety-critical domains, including aviation. In addition to traditional eye-tracking measures on pilots’ visual behavior, it seems promising to incorporate machine learning approaches to classify pilots’ visual scanning patterns. However, given the multitude...

Developing safe automated vehicles that can be proactive, safe, and comfortable in mixed traffic requires improved planning methods that are risk-averse and that account for predictions of the motion of other road users. To consider these criteria, in this article, we propose a nonlinear model-predictive trajectory generator scheme, which...

Safety critical functions of the engineered railway need to perform at levels of integrity that are so high that an acceptable failure rate cannot be demonstrated through testing alone. Where such functions need to be implemented in complex programmable electronic systems certain design, build and test requirements are defined in technical...

An increasing number of tasks is being taken over from the human driver as automated driving technology is developed. Accidents have been reported in situations where the automated driving technology was not able to function according to specifications. As data-driven Artificial Intelligence (AI) systems are becoming more ubiquitous in automated...

In this paper, we introduce “scientific and empirical adversarial AI attacks” (SEA AI attacks) as umbrella term for not yet prevalent but technically feasible deliberate malicious acts of specifically crafting AI-generated samples to achieve an epistemic distortion in (applied) science or engineering contexts. In view of possible socio-psycho...

Despite advances regarding autonomous functionality for robots, teleoperation remains a means for performing delicate tasks in safety critical contexts like explosive ordnance disposal (EOD) and ambiguous environments. Immersive stereoscopic displays have been proposed and developed in this regard, but bring about their own specific problems, e...

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...

In the past several years, autonomous driving turned out tobe a target for many technical players. Automated driving requires newand advanced mechanisms to provide safe functionality and the increased communication makes automated vehicles more vulnerable to attacks. Security is already well-established in some domains, such as the IT sector,...

A self-supporting sandwich panel facade system under fire is studied. First, a thermomechanical FE model, which comprises the complete facade system, and incorporates material degradation and geometrical nonlinear behaviour except for the insulation material and connections, is loaded by a fire temperature curve. Eurocode design rules then...

Transparency of changes, automated testing of new developments against documented criteria, combination of developments from different sources and automated publication of validated results are key aspects of modern collaborative software engineering. Various infrastructures, guidelines and tools are available for continuous integration (CI) and...

New safety challenges have to be targeted due to the development of fully automated vehicles in the upcoming future. However, designing safe vehicle automation systems is essential. This work presents a scenario-based methodology for functional safety analysis according to the ISO 26262 using the example of automated valet parking . The vehicle...

General frameworks for reliability differentiation have evolved over time and are mainly developed for new buildings. However, recommendations for existing quay walls are lacking. In this study target reliability indices for assessing existing quay walls were derived by economic optimisation and by evaluating the Life Quality Index criterion ...

Safety of engineered nanomaterials is a new scientific field, which draws increasing attention in the literature. Among the challenges the field is facing are the insufficient amount and quality of nanotoxicological data and the ambiguity in the metrics describing the exposure. This results in substantial difficulties in the actual...

Truck platooning is gaining more and more interest thanks to the benefits on improved traffic efficiency, reduced fuel consumption and emissions. To gain these benefits, it typically involves small following distances . Due to the small following distances, the cut-in manoeuvre of target vehicles becomes safety critical and requires the...

A shortcoming of many Cooperative Adaptive Cruise Control (CACC) schemes is the lack of a guarantee of safe vehicle behavior in a platoon, i.e., making sure that a vehicle does not collide with its preceding vehicle in case the latter performs a deceleration outside the operational range of the CACC system. To overcome that problem, this paper...

In structural reliability the dependence structure between random variables is almost exclusively modeled by Gauss (normal or Gaussian) copula; however, this implicit assumption is typically not corroborated. This paper is focusing on time-variant reliability problems with continuous stochastic processes, which are collection of dependent random...

Introduction of automated driving increases complexity of automotive systems. As a result, architecture design becomes a major concern for ensuring non-functional requirements such as safety, and modifiability. In the ISO 26262 standard, architecture patterns are recommended for system development. However, the existing architecture patterns may...

In the Dutch province of Groningen over the last year shallow earthquakes are induced due to large scale gas extraction from the gas field at 3 km depth. The induced earthquakes differ from the better known tectonic earthquakes all over the world, caused by movement of the earth at large depths. The structures affected by the earthquakes however...
