VTT researchers Risto Tiusanen and Eetu Heikkilä attended the Safety-critical Systems Symposium (SSS’20) seminar in York, UK on February 11-13, 2020. They both gave poster presentations on safety aspects of autonomous mobile machinery and logistics.

The event was hosted by the UK’s Safety-critical systems club SCSC, which involves participants e.g. from the automotive and aerospace industries. Such multi-disciplinary audience allowed knowledge-sharing on autonomous systems development between these traditionally safety-critical industries, and the novel systems in the focus of the AUTOPORT project.

York features no seaport, but it is an important hub for the research on safety of autonomous systems.
