Aircraft design innovation is a lever to improve safety when combined with appropriate procedures and flight operations. Autonomy and innovation are key enablers of the aircraft industry.

To innovate in that field, Airbus launched a research programme to explore a different kind of cockpit for commercial aircraft of the 21st century, that could enhance safety, flight operations, crew situational awareness, while improving aircraft performance.

The team was given a blank sheet. It’s noteworthy that they started building the tools and means to iterate quickly and to “fail fast”, determining as soon as possible whether an idea has value or not, in order to drop it and give space to move the more promising ideas forward.

Although this research exercise is far from being completed, we are now convinced that autonomy technologies such as perception, navigation, automation, human-system interface have the potential to further enhance aviation safety and aircraft operational efficiency.

About Pascal Traverse

Pascal Traverse is building Airbus strategy around autonomy technologies (automation, human-machine interface …) for the whole Airbus, launching the projects that are needed to fuel that strategy, fostering synergies within Airbus, and then participating in their steering. He participated in Fly-by-Wire development, from A320 to A380 – mostly on system architecture, safety and certification. Outside Airbus, he contributed to the first version of ARP4754 and regulation harmonization (with EASA, FAA …). He then managed Airbus system safety activities and later on part of A380 manufacturing quality (Final Assembly Line). Pascal Traverse is a Fellow of the AAAF, the Aeronautic and Aerospace Association of France. His doctorate is from Toulouse Institut National Polytechnique (N7). Pascal Traverse worked on research in LAAS (Laboratoire d’Analyse et d’Architecture des Systèmes, Toulouse) and UCLA (University of California, Los Angeles).

About the 5th Future-IoT PhD school on “IoT meets Autonomy”

Please inform your interested friends about this opportunity: The 5th Future-IoT PhD school on “IoT meets Autonomy” is running from Aug 29 – Sep , 2022 in Berlin. A week full of exciting keynotes, challenges, research exchange, networking, and social events lays ahead of us! Only a few days left and we have good news for you: we still have space on-site and remotely via video conferencing. Check the program and register at school.future-iot.org.

For the full on-site experience, we still have a few rooms blocked. If you want to fully participate physically, register as soon as possible as we distribute First Come First Served now.

If you want to participate remotely in all activities including posters and challenges, we also have some zoom places left for that. This is the recommended remote category as it gives you almost the full experience.

We celebrate our 5th anniversary this year! We cordially invite you to our 5th Future-IoT.org PhD school on “IoT meets Autonomy” from Aug 29th – Sep 2nd, 2022 at the Einstein Center Digital Future in Berlin, Germany. Expect a week full of exciting challenges, keynotes, PhD pitches, networking, sight seeing, and more – short, a lot of fun is awaiting you. Inform your friends! Share the info! Subscribe to the news! Participate with your company in the organisation! More info and registration at school.future-iot.org

This year’s edition has the motto “IoT meets Autonomy“. Many of the computer systems around us work autonomously. They simply run without human intervention, adapt to their environment, or even evolve with mechanisms such as Machine Learning. Implementing such functionality can be challenging. These challenges are not only technical but also ethical, societal, juridic, etc. In this years edition, we will explore different forms of autonomy using the IoT as use case. Topics include but are not limited to Data Analytics, Machine Learning, IoT protocols, self-*, and cybersecurity.

About the Future-IoT.org PhD school series

The Future-IoT.org Ph.D. school series happens once a year since 2018. The previous editions are “IoT meets Industry (2018, St Malo)”“IoT meets AI (2019, Munich)”“IoT meets Security (2020 in the cyberspace)”“IoT meets Cyber and Security (2021, Rennes)”, “IoT meets Autonomy (2022, Berlin)“.

The series is organized by IMT Atlantique and the Technical University of Munich as a flagship event of the German-French Academy for the Industry of the Future. The French-German series is kindly supported by the Deutsch-Französische Hochschule / Université Franco-Allemande, and the German Chapter of the ACM.

Future-IoT.org connects academia and industry. Therefore, the series is in collaboration with leading industry partners from France and Germany including Airbus, ArianeGroup, Atos, AWS, elm.leblanc, Siemens, and several other industrial partners.

The Future IoT summer school offers an exciting mix of lectures, hands-on tutorials, and hackathon challenges. There is also a lot of room for getting to know each other, networking, and exploring our hosting city!
