|Skills to be acquired in this module||
The students are enabled to analyze and build autonomous systems.
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. The module furthermore enables the students to analyze existing architectures for autonomous systems with respect to their performance and safety. The students 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. They understand the software and hardware components necessary for achieving system autonomy and are able to design or instantiate these.
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. They are able to assess the safety impact of such a solution and are therefore able to develop a personal ethical stance towards its realization.
