Despite the enormous number of fatalities and injuries on US roads from automobile accidents, the design and development of active safety systems tend to be traditional in nature. Current industry standard practice resorts to extensive on-road vehicle tests to decrease the probability of failures. Given the uncertainty on environment conditions and drivers behavior, the statistical relevance of such tests is questionable.
Leading researchers from around the world will meet in Philadelphia for a weeklong conference on Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) - built-in intelligent computer/communications technology, that promises to enhance efficiency while simplifying daily life.
The goal of this multidisciplinary project is to develop the first cooperative network of small robots. It involves the concurrent investigation of control and estimation algorithms, actuators, sensors and platforms that support mobility and collaboration subject to severe power, size and weight constraints.
