The vehicle mainly operates in a crowded urban environment whose features can be extracted a priori.  ...  To ensure that the system is economically feasible, we take a minimalistic approach and exploit prior knowledge of the environment and the availability of the existing infrastructure such as cellular networks  ...  Systems that are driven with heavy infrastructure dependence such as monorails typically require significant setup and are more suitable for a fully controlled environment such as warehouses and docks.  ...

Autonomics: In search of a foundation for next-generation autonomous systems

David Harel, Assaf Marron, Joseph Sifakis
2020 Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America  
We argue that a solid, evolving, publicly available, community-controlled foundation for developing next-generation autonomous systems is a must, and term the desired foundation "autonomics."  ...  We focus on three main challenges: 1) how to specify autonomous system behavior in the face of unpredictability; 2) how to carry out faithful analysis of system behavior with respect to rich environments  ...  We are grateful to Guy Katz and Orna Kupferman for valuable discussions in the early stages of preparing the paper.  ...
