CPSRC Seminar Series - Temporal Logic Robustness: Applications to Synthesis and Analysis of Autonomous Systems

Georgios Fainekos
Associate Professor, Computing, Informatics and Decision Systems Engineering

Abstract: Many autonomous (or highly automated) systems are also safety critical. Due to their safety critical nature, they must adhere to well defined requirements typically in pairs of assumptions and guarantees. An ongoing research challenge is to develop a specification formalism to rule them... Read More
