CPS / Safety-Critical Systems Research Environment

Dronology is an Open-Source Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) developed at the University of Notre Dame. The project has two main objectives:

  • First, to establish a research environment for studying various aspects of software and systems engineering for cyberphysical systems -- e.g., runtime monitoring, safety analysis, and product line development.
  • Second, to provide a framework for controlling and coordinating the flight of individual UAS, formations, and swarms in order to to support applications such as search-and-rescue, surveillance, and scientific data collection.

These two goals are closely related -- as developing a research environment for investigating challenges in safety-critical software systems involves building a system with safety-critical implications.
