  Abstract: Cyber-physical systems (CPS) are networks of physical and digital components and present a next generation of large-scale highly-interconnected networked embedded systems. On the one hand, CPS open enormous opportunities as they form the core of emerging smart devices and services which are going to revolutionize many traditional industries such as automotive, traffic management, power generation and delivery, as well as manufacturing. On the other hand, highly autonomous systems pose special engineering challenges as any unexpected behaviour might lead to large financial losses or even human deaths.

  In this talk, we address this challenge and propose automatic techniques to analyze CPS. For this purpose, we use the concept of hybrid automata which has proven to be particularly useful to model CPS. We give an overview of techniques to ensure efficient analysis of hybrid automata. In particular, we present support-function based representation of region state space and discuss ways to refine it.

  Finally, we discuss the connection between verification and hybrid planning, and use autonomous driving to showcase benefits their interplay can result at.

  Bio: Sergiy Bogomolov is on the faculty of the Research School of Computer Science at the Australian National University. He is broadly interested in algorithms and techniques to support design and development workflow of trustworthy and resilient autonomous systems.

  For this purpose, he uses and develops techniques on the interface of hybrid automata verification and AI planning. Prior to joining ANU Sergiy was Postdoctoral Researcher at the Institute of Science and Technology Austria. His Ph.D. and M.Sc. degrees are from the University of Freiburg, Germany.
