The versatility of the internet enables many applications that play an increasingly bigger role in our society. However, users have little control over the route that their internet traffic takes, which prevents them from controlling who sees their packets and how their traffic is handled. Researchers have proposed an extension to the internet,...

In the rapidly evolving aviation sector, the quest for safer and more efficient flight operations has historically relied on traditional Automatic Flight Control Systems (AFCS) based on high-fidelity models. However, such models not only incur high development costs but also struggle to adapt to new, complex aircraft designs and unexpected...

Testing with simulation environments helps to identify critical failing scenarios for self-driving cars (SDCs). Simulation-based tests are safer than in-field operational tests and allow detecting software defects before deployment. However, these tests are very expensive and are too many to be run frequently within limited time constraints...

In this work, we propose two cooperative passivity-based control methods for networks of mechanical systems. By cooperatively synchronizing the end-effector coordinates of the individual agents, we achieve cooperation between systems of different types. The underlying passivity property of our control approaches ensures that cooperation is...

Verifying the performance of safety-critical, stochastic systems with complex noise distributions is difficult. We introduce a general procedure for the finite abstraction of nonlinear stochastic systems with nonstandard (e.g., non-affine, non-symmetric, non-unimodal) noise distributions for verification purposes. The method uses a finite...

We use Value Sensitive Design for the development of an ethical framework for autonomous systems in Defence in the Australian context. Two novel empirical data gathering methods are deployed for mining stakeholder's values, namely Group Decision Room (GDR) and Participatory Value Evaluation (PVE). GDR findings reveal a general concern for...

Cooperative driving controllers are becoming interesting subjects for future research in automated driving with the increase in connectivity. Using true-scale<br/>autonomous vehicles to properly test new control algorithms can be a challenge<br/>due to three main factors: costs, safety, and space requirements. To overcome<br/>these problems,...

Ensuring the trustworthiness of autonomous systems and artificial intelligence is an important interdisciplinary endeavour. In this position paper, we argue that this endeavour will benefit from technical advancements in capturing various forms of responsibility, and we present a comprehensive research agenda to achieve this. In particular,...

Distributed robots that survey and assist with search &amp; rescue operations usually deal with unknown environments with limited communication. This paper focuses on distributed &amp; cooperative multi-robot area coverage strategies of unknown environments, having constrained communication. Due to restricted communication there is...

The UK has set plans to increase offshore wind capacity from 22GW to 154GW by 2030. With such tremendous growth, the sector is now looking to Robotics and Artificial Intelligence (RAI) in order to tackle lifecycle service barriers as to support sustainable and profitable offshore wind energy production. Today, RAI applications are...

This paper investigates a distributed formation tracking control law for large-scale networks of mechanical systems. In particular, the formation network is represented by a directed communication graph with leaders and followers, where each agent is described as a port-Hamiltonian system with a constant mass matrix. Moreover, we adopt a...

Micro robotic airships offer significant advantages in terms of safety, mobility, and extended flight times. However, their highly restrictive weight constraints pose a major challenge regarding the available computational power to perform the required control tasks. Thus, spiking neural networks (SNNs) are a promising research direction. By...

van Leeuwen, C.J. (author)
In this thesis I research the ability of groups of agents to organize their collective behavior, without any human intervention. Using a framework for gathering information of the behavior, analyzing the performance, and updating the behavior, the agents can adapt to changing environments or user requirements. In my thesis I use different...

Accountability is a value often mentioned in the debate on intelligent systems and their increased pervasiveness in our society. When focusing specifically on autonomous systems, a critical gap emerges: although there is much work on governance and attribution of accountability, there is a significant lack of methods for the operationalisation...

Cyber-physical systems (CPSs) represent practical examples of the integration of bits and atoms in human and social contexts and contribute to the integration of neurons and genes into system implementation. Many experts believe that a deeper theoretical understanding of system adaptation will lead to the development of autonomous systems and...

A computational system is called autonomous if it is able to make its own decisions, or take its own actions, without human supervision or control. The capability and spread of such systems have reached the point where they are beginning to touch much of everyday life. However, regulators grapple with how to deal with autonomous systems, for...

To develop and effectively deploy Trustworthy Autonomous Systems (TAS), we face various social, technological, legal, and ethical challenges in which different notions of responsibility can play a key role. In this work, we elaborate on these challenges, discuss research gaps, and show how the multidimensional notion of responsibility can...
