You will make significant theoretical and practical research contributions to the development of methods for the safe sharing of control in autonomous vehicles. You will develop methods for the machine learning, modelling and verification of safety-driver situational awareness; for generating robust control software for the shared control of autonomous vehicles; and for generating evidence that this software operates safely. You will contribute to the validation of these methods using a Force Dynamics 401CR driving simulator, and write up results of tests and experiments undertaken. You will disseminate the project results through publications, conference presentations and outreach activities; and you will contribute to their integration into a Body of Knowledge on state-of-the-art methods and processes for the engineering, assurance, regulation, deployment and operation of robotics and autonomous systems. You will provide guidance to other staff and students, as required, as well as coordinating the work of small research teams, as well as assist with undergraduate teaching in own area of expertise.
