About Collaborative Autonomous and Resilient Systems (CARS)

The mission of the ICRI-CARS is the study of security, privacy, and safety of autonomous systems that may collaborate with each other. Examples include drones, self-driving vehicles, or collaborative systems in industrial automation. CARS introduce a new paradigm to computing that is different from conventional systems in a very important way: they must learn, adapt, and evolve with minimal or no supervision. A fundamental question therefore, is what rules and principles should guide the evolution of CARS?

This raises security related questions in multiple research areas:

  1. Trustworthy and Controllable Autonomy
  2. Fair and Safe Collaboration Tolerating Failures and Attacks
  3. Intelligent Security Strategies for Self-Defense and Self-Repair
  4. Integration of Safety, Security, and Real-time Guarantees
  5. Autonomous Systems, Ecosystem Scenarios, Requirements, Case Studies, and Validation
  6. Advanced Platform Security for Long-term Autonomy
