SafeTRANS Roadmap onFoundations for Safety and Explainability of AI based Safety-Critical Applications
Artificial Intelligence has grown into a front-runner technology of digital transformation, disrupting economy, society, and our life, and soliciting massive investment and funding worldwide. We are, however, running into the limits of controllability of large, highly connected AI based systems, due to lack of understanding their complexity and of methods and processes to establish their safety, reliability, and transparency. These limitations are novel in kind and severe, and will lead to dwindling public and consumer acceptance, and hence to drastic losses of business opportunities and markets, as currently to be witnessed in the automotive sector's broad retreat from highly autonomous driving. Given this key industrial relevance of assuring safety and explainability for AI based system, we plan to launch the Joint German Research Center on Foundations for Safety and Explainability of AI based Safety Critical Applications, providing the foundational research for solving the underlying research challenges in cooperation with research labs of relevant industries and organization. This center is coordinated by a core team leading researchers from industry, AI, and formal methods whose research demonstrates clear relevance for addressing safety and explainability of AI based safety-critical systems. This strategy paper outlines the key approach of a planned Lighthouse Project focusing on methods and tools required to establish safety and explainability for industry selected classes of safety critical applications with high business potential. It represents the joint position of the consortium led by a core team comprising key German industrial sectors wanting to deploy AI based components in safety critical applications and highly renown researchers in the areas of AI, Formal Methods, Control Theory, and Human Cognition pushing the fundamental barriers which currently block certifiability of such applications.
Safety, Security, and Certifiability of Future Man-Machine Systems
The roadmap and position paper "Safety, Security, and Certifiability of Future Man-Machine Systems" outline the development of Cyber-Physical Systems towards highly complex human-machine systems and work out a technology roadmap as well as recommendations to ensure Quality Made in Germany" CPS.
Societal and Technological Research Challenges for Highly Automated Road Transportation Systems in Germany and the US
Initialized by the DFG and NSF funded PIRE project “SD-SSCPS – Science of Design of Societal Scale Cyber-Physical Systems”, a two-day expert workshop titled “Societal and Technological Research Challenges for Highly Automated Road Transportation Systems in Germany and the US: Diversity and Synergy Potentials” brought together experts from research organizations and public authorities from the US and Germany.
The workshop was hosted by: German Aerospace Center
Place: Washington, D.C.
Its main objective was to establish a mutual understanding about current approaches and research activities for building, validating, and testing Highly Automated Driving Systems on both sides of the Atlantic. This report summarizes the workshop’s content and its key findings.
Position paper and Roadmap "Highly Automated Systems: Test, Safety, and Development Processes - Research Challenges and Recommendations of Actions"
The roadmap and position paper outline research and regulatory topics for a cost-effective and safe use of highly automated systems, with a focus on the entire development process, including architecture and security aspects as well as verification and validation (V&V).
ECSEL Strategic Research Agenda Electronic Components and Systems (ECS SRA), 2018
ARTEMIS Strategic Research Agenda 2016
The ARTEMIS Industry Association launched its Strategic Research Agenda 2016 in April. ARTEMIS-IA aims to consolidate the pathway for the digital revolution, enabling a more agile and shorter development cycle of Embedded Intelligent Systems. In the coming years the Industry Association will focus on providing strong technological capability over the whole value chain, thus removing barriers between application contexts to yield multi-domain, reusable components and Embedded Intelligent systems, and extend the use of digital platforms to build the stronger eco-systems that are needed to accelerate innovation and create new business models.

Cyber-physical systems will pose new challenges to science and research. Embedded hardware and software systems are decisive driving forces for innovation in the export and growth markets of German industry. They crucially expand the functionality and, as a result, the practical value and competitiveness of vehicles, aircraft, medical equipment, production plants and household appliances. The objective should be to master technology and its economic use and to focus on the social acceptance of cyber-physical systems.
