Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL) has been recommended by ISO 26262 as an essential test bench for determining the safety and reliability characteristics of automotive software systems (ASSs). However, due to the complexity and the huge amount of data recorded by the HIL platform during the testing process, the conventional data analysis methods used for...

Human interaction with AI-based robotic systems has an uncertain nature. This uncertainty affects both parties of the interaction, i.e., not only the human is uncertain about the AI-agent, but the latter faces the same issue with the former. This becomes problematic when failures have severe physical and psychological consequences (e.g., autonomous...
Article
Design and architecture patterns are proven domain-independent solution approaches for common problems occurring in the development of software systems. To guarantee the problem-solving capabilities of patterns, a correct implementation of the design pattern is essential. As a context-specific adoption of the design pattern to the software system n...

The Circular Economy (CE) aims at keeping products in circles to reduce their environmental impact. To implement CE, the products themselves need to be sustainable, and they need to be used and handled sustainably, e.g., by reuse, sharing, and circulation. Mobile apps can help users understand the environmental impacts of the use and consumption of...
Conference Paper
In this work, we propose a computational robot trust model based on the predictability of the human partner as the main factor that impacts robot trust. Using this model and based on the robot’s knowledge about the task, the robot switches its behavior between conservative and normal, and adjusts the implemented safety mechanism as a function of th...
