DATE Workshop on Autonomous Systems Design (ASD 2019)

29 March 2019 | Florence, Italy |

co-located with the conference DATE 2019

ASD 2019 is the 1st international workshop on Autonomous Systems Design. The goal of the workshop is to explore recent industrial and academic trends, methods and methodologies in autonomous systems design. The workshop consists of regular sessions with peer-reviewed research papers selected from an open call, complemented by invited talks on robotics, automated driving and frameworks for autonomous systems like ROS and AUTOSAR Adaptive.

The workshop is organized into three sessions. The first session will discuss recent development approaches for autonomous systems involving Robot Operating System (ROS), advanced implementations of model predictive control systems and multi-view model-based design and verification approaches. The second session will discuss dependable autonomous systems design based on reliable control solutions in cloud computing provided under formal guarantees, degradation cascades for sensor and communication failures in autonomous car platoons, applying STPA-based (System Theoretic Process Analysis) hazard analysis technique for the design of robust autonomous emergency braking systems under safety and security requirements, and the incorporation of self-awareness in the design of autonomous systems using dynamic formal data flow semantics. The last session is dedicated to present recent research activities and derived findings of research and industrial clusters in the field of autonomous driving.

Detailed program of the workshop is available on the following link:

Keynote Speakers:
- Thomas Form, Head of Electronics and Vehicle Research, Volkswagen AG, Germany
Title : Challenges of Automated and Connected Driving

- Masaki Gondo, CTO at eSOL Co., Ltd., Japan
Title : AUTOSAR Adaptive - Challenging the Impossible

This year, the workshop will have two distinguished industrial keynotes highlighting important challenges and recent trends in the fields of autonomous design. In his keynote "Challenges of Automated and Connected Driving", Thomas Form, Head of Electronics and Vehicle Research at Volkswagen AG, will talk about the challenges in automated driving regarding sensor technologies, redundancies as well as verification and validation questions. Masaki Gondo, CTO at eSOL, the company that provides POSIX/AUTOSAR/TRON RTOS will talk about AUTOSAR Adaptive as a standardized software platform specification for the highly automated and autonomous driving and emphasize the role of OS architectures in coping with recent challenges in the field.

Exhibition & Interactive Discussion:

An exhibition area will include interactive presentations with posters during which all presented papers are discussed with the authors. The exhibition area will also involve the following demonstrators,

  • Autonomous robots exploring an unknown area using a run-time update to a state of the art environment perception and trajectory planning system used in the research vehicle MOBILE. The demonstrator aims at showing the applicability of the concepts developed in the CCC project ( to the domain of automated driving.
  • Autonomous racing competitions where small cars explore a track concurrently with other cars and use perception, planning and control in order to avoid crashing and complete the track. This demonstrator is part of the F1/10 International Autonomous Racing Competition (

It will be presented by the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, Italy and is supported by IEEE CEDA.

The exhibition area will be available to all attendees of the workshop.

Advanced registration rate: until 13 Feb 2019

Important note: If you have already planned to attend the DATE conference, please note that the registration to the conference is decoupled from the registration to the ASD workshop. Therefore, your registration to the conference is not enough to attend the workshop. Alternatively, if you are not planning to attend the DATE conference, then you can register solely to the workshop.
