Integration of Co-Simulation Methods into a real-time Platform for CPS

This experiment aims to facilitate the development of cyber-physical systems (CPS) by allowing to use the same system architecture in various phases of the project development through the support of real-time co-simulation. The development of CPS intrinsically requires that various engineering domains collaborate between each other: computer engineering, control theory, mechanics, thermodynamics, among others. Therefore various stakeholders, various teams, various tools and various techniques have to be synchronized in order to ensure that the development matches its objectives.

SafeAM (Safety enhancement for autonomous robotic airfield management): application to lighting control and management

This experiment targets innovative approaches of realizing safe autonomous CPS, with a focus on mobile ground robot applications. The experiment provides an assessment of the applicability of a number of methods and tools proposed by the French CPSE Labs Design Centre for the safety analysis, the architectural design and validation of such robotic systems. A subset of these techniques has been successfully applied in the aeronautics domain and the experiment shall assess their applicability to the robotic field. Other techniques are dedicated to autonomous robotic systems and their application to a new use case should help to increase their maturity.

SafeNav (Formal Verification Applied to the Navigation of an Autonomous Shuttle)

This experiment aims to use formal verification methods on an autonomous vehicle, the EZ10. This EZ10 is an autonomous shuttle vehicle produced by EasyMile that can transport 10 people, typically for last-mile use cases or for short travels of some kilometers in city centers, large industrial sites, etc. Safety is at the heart of such a system and there is thus a need to apply verification techniques on the software. The approach that will be used in SafeNav consists of modelling the software architecture with components using Genom3 and defining properties about some attributes of these components that shall be satisfied. The BIP framework will be used to perform both static analysis and real-time verification about these properties.

This experiment is supported by our France design centre.
