Abstract: Ensuring autonomous system safety is crucial, but traditional analysis and testing techniques are likely to be insufficient to do this because of the adaptive nature of such systems. We have identified runtime verification techniques as an especially promising approach, and have used them to successfully build a runtime safety monitor for a large autonomous off-road vehicle. While this is still early work, results on other systems indicate that runtime monitors hold promise for helping to ensure safety across a wide variety of autonomous systems.
