Formal development of policing functions for intelligent systems
We present an approach for ensuring safety properties of autonomous systems. Our contribution is a system architecture where a policing function validating system safety properties at runtime is separated from the system's intelligent planning function. The policing function is developed formally by a correct-by-construction method. The separation of concerns enables the possibility of replacing and adapting the intelligent planning function without changing the validation approach. We validate our approach on the example of a multi-UAV system managing route generation. Our prototype runtime validator has been integrated and evaluated with an industrial UAV synthetic environment.

Abstract

We present an approach for ensuring safety properties of autonomous systems. Our contribution is a system architecture where a policing function validating system safety properties at runtime is separated from the system's intelligent planning function. The policing function is developed formally by a correct-by-construction method. The separation of concerns enables the possibility of replacing and adapting the intelligent planning function without changing the validation approach. We validate our approach on the example of a multi-UAV system managing route generation. Our prototype runtime validator has been integrated and evaluated with an industrial UAV synthetic environment.
