Unlocking the potential of autonomous systems and operations through supervisory risk control (UNLOCK)

Autonomous systems are emerging and essential for allowing new and challenging operations, such as mapping and monitoring of oceans and areas on land, inspections of structures difficult to access, and autonomous transportation, both land based and at sea. Autonomous functionality may be a step towards safer and more efficient operations, but software and advanced control systems also lead to risks, complexity and interlocks that are very challenging to identify, assess, and control. In the future, autonomous systems with increased intelligence will emerge. Acceptance and approval of highly intelligent systems with built-in learning and optimization capabilities require supervisory risk control and online risk modelling, testing and verification to become a driver in design, operation and overall system validation. UNLOCK addresses fundamental research challenges related to risk acceptance and supervisory risk control of autonomous systems and operations. The results of the project will support and enhance the achievement of higher-level autonomy and intelligence in advanced control systems. The aim is to achieve safe system performances and allow for widespread use of autonomous systems.

The research project is funded by FRINATEK, and is associated with the Center of Excellence NTNU AMOS. More information about the project will become available.

Reducing risk in aquaculture

This project will research and develop novel concepts for autonomous operations and technology to improve safety and efficiency in aquaculture. In particular, the project will address daily operations and inspection, maintenance, and repair (IMR) for exposed locations, but the project results will also be applicable to more sheltered fish production. Moreover, the project will assess, utilize and possibly adapt technology developed for subsea IMR in the oil and gas industry. Advances in sensor technology, robotics, ICT, and localization methods create new opportunities for reducing operators' manual workload and exposure time on the facilities at sea, for preventing fish escape, and for improving safety and operational efficiency. The project is funded by Havbruk 2 and is associated with SFI Exposed Aquaculture Operations. More information.

Undervisning

Involvert i studiefordypning i marin sikkerhet og driftsledelse (tidligere driftsteknikk) i det 5-årige studieprogrammet i marin teknikk. Fordypningen dekker viktig kunnskap og metoder for drift av effektive, sikre og miljøvennlige marine systemer, dvs. skip, offshore olje - og gassinstallasjoner, fiskeri og havbruk og fornybar energiproduksjon fra havet.
