Planning and introductory lectures for "DeSeRTS-2008"

DeSeRTS -Design of Safe and Reliable Technical Systems - exploring the dark sides of technologies

A broad introduction of novel autonomous intelligent systems is in sight. Products like intelligent domestic appliances, nursing robots and robots interacting directly with workers promise improved life quality, improvements in the production and business opportunities for companies. On the other side their malfunction may also introduce many new dangers. With the well recognized standards (e.g. EN-IEC-61508) the EU already has a good position in this field. But design, development, production and service of such safety critical systems require people with awareness and knowledge in safety design which in most regular study programs is not or hardly addressed. Supplementing regular course programs with an intensive program as proposed here seems reasonable. The required interdisciplinary approach starts with basic safety principles (analysis of failures, risk assessment, quantification of safety, etc.) and covers as well hardware aspects (mechanics, electronics, processor systems etc.) as well software aspects (control programs, software quality etc.). Further mentality driven differences in the perception of people with respect to safety from different countries have to be aligned. It can be expected that students with such skills can help to strengthen the position of European companies. Hence, the topic certainly is a valuable extension to regular programs in mechanical engineering, electronics engineering and computer engineering.

After the successful launch last year at University of Applied Sciences Bonn-Rhein-Sieg Sankt Augustin Campus in 2008 EVTEK University of Applied Sciences, Espoo hosts the summerschool "DeSeRTS" from April 14 to 25.

Again 60 students and 10 lecturers from Finland (EVTEK, Espoo), Germany (FH-BRS, Sankt Augustin) the Netherlands (HvA, Amsterdam), Norway (HiST, Trondheim) and Spain (UPV, Valencia) take part.

"Intensive programme" funded by the European Union in the framework of the Socrates-Erasmus programme
