17 Application: conflict detection

18 Blunder Zone is shown by the yellow contour Red Zone in the green tunnel is the intersection of the BZ with approach path. The Red Zone corresponds to an assumed 2 second pilot delay. The Yellow Zone corresponds to an 8 second pilot delay [with Chad Jennings]

19 Map View showing a blunder The BZ calculations are performed in real time (40Hz) so that the contour is updated with each video frame. [with Chad Jennings]

29 Interaction between –System’s dynamics –Mode logic –User’s actions Interface is a reduced representation of a more complex system Too much information overwhelms the user Too little can cause confusion –Automation surprises –Nondeterminisim For complex, highly automated, safety-critical systems, in which provably safe operation is paramount, What information does the user need to safely interact with the automated system? User Interaction with Aerospace Systems

30 Switches are controlled or automatic Discrete Abstraction

33 A Decision Theoretic QoS Negotiation Each task is “tagged” with a cost – a measure of criticality Worst case execution of time of components is neither given nor guaranteed Depending on the mode of flight, components (Nav, Control, Wireless) can take on different levels of criticality and different execution times

34 QoS Negotiation Task 1 f 1 Task 2 f 1 f 2 f 3 Task 3 f 1 f 2 f 3 f 4 Task 5 f … as a dynamic programming problem

35 SCHEDULABILITY: Comparison with Simple Rate Monotonic Scheduling Schedulability of Tasks using the proposed scheduling algorithm Schedulability of Tasks using a Simple RMS 88.5% 3.5% 0.4% 8.0% 0.6%1.5% 73.5% 18.5% 6.5% 1.0 ms 80.0 ms

36 Summary The development of a reach set toolkit for hybrid systems: –Software C++: The toolkit can be useful for determining when (not) to switch modes, which mode(s) to switch to, and provides a set-valued feedback control law to remain in safe set A modern embedded control systems theory should include mathematical models of attributes of computational systems such as concurrency, hierarchy, heterogeneity, resource awareness, adaptability, quality of service (QoS), and controlled complexity of distributed systems.
