Provably Safe Automotive Cyber Physical Systems with Human-in-the-loop

CPS: Synergy: Provably Safe Automotive Cyber-Physical Systems with Humans-in-the-Loop


This project is a multi-university collaborative effort funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF). The objective is to study the design of high confidence active safety systems in vehicles to drastically reduce the number of road accidents and the resulting casualties. Our focus is on a systematic, human-centric approach. We aim to tackle the following issues in a unified way:

  • When to intervene to obtain a provably safe closed-loop behavior
  • How to enable real-time operations on embedded platforms
  • How to quantify uncertainty in the environment using large data sets

Our team consists of research groups from UC Berkeley (UCB), UC San Diego (UCSD) and North Carolina State University (NCSU) with expertise in mechanical and electrical engineering, computer science and psychology.
