Skills to be acquired in this module
Professional competences
The students
  • are enabled to analyze and build autonomous systems.
Methodological competences
The students
  • know examples of existing autonomous systems, understand the elements involved in their architectural design and the rationale behind decomposing the problem into obligations for the respective system components.
  • analyze existing architectures for autonomous systems with respect to their performance and safety.
  • learn how to decompose a problem of designing an autonomous system into an architecture
  • are able to derive design obligations for its components, and can structure a pertinent safety case.
  • understand the software and hardware components necessary for achieving system autonomy and are able to design or instantiate these.
Social competences
The students
  • acquire hands-on experience in designing components for autonomous systems in small teams and present the underlying theory, their particular design decisions, and their personal evaluation to fellow students.
The students
  • can judge adequacy of their methodological skills for designing particular autonomous solutions
  • are able to assess the safety impact of such a solution and are therefore able to develop a personal ethical stance towards its realization
