Recent decades have witnessed significant investment in ensuring safety for autonomous systems. It is hard to foresee all corner-cases for such complex systems at design time. Formal verification of such systems, containing non-trivial continuous subsystems, remains challenging.

In this talk, the speaker would like to introduce some latest research outcomes in monitoring and verifying cyber-physical systems (CPS), where the autonomous vehicle is one of the applications. The talk will address challenges and present proposed solutions for monitoring autonomous systems behaviors, including expressing safety properties and designing corresponding monitoring algorithms. The talk will then introduce adaptive and statistical verification of the system, according to system behaviors.

The speaker would also shortly introduce the state of art testing techniques for autonomous systems proposed by various groups, including the research group the speaker is in.
