Abstract 

Today, we are living with intelligent robots -- Some may be as harmless as a robotic cleaner taking care of a household’s floor dust, but others may be as harmful as a killer drone capable of air striking innocent civilians. In the first half of the talk, I will give an overview of my research on the decision making of autonomous systems (with and without human counterparts) from a control and optimization standpoint. For the second half, I will focus on the research and development effort within the automotive industry, specifically on the advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) for eco-friendly vehicles, as well as on my latest findings in some of the arising ethical issues from promoting driverless cars.

Baro Hyun is currently a Senior Research Engineer with Hyundai Motor Group, Research and Development Division and an Adjunct Assistant Research Scientist of Aerospace Engineering with the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. He received his M.S. and Ph.D. degree both in aerospace engineering from SUNY Buffalo and the University of Michigan, respectively. His technical research interests include planning and navigation of autonomous systems and human-machine decision making. He has been a moderator for “designing autonomous system with ethical concerns” discussion session at a major driverless vehicle forum.
