Evaluation of Runtime Monitoring for UAV Emergency Landing


To certify UAV operations in populated areas, risk mitigation strategies-such as Emergency Landing (EL)must be in place to account for potential failures. EL aims at reducing ground risk by finding safe landing areas using onboard sensors. The first contribution of this paper is to present a new EL approach, in line with safety requirements introduced in recent research. In particular, the proposed EL pipeline includes mechanisms to monitor learning based components during execution. This way, another contribution is to study the behavior of Machine Learning Runtime Monitoring (MLRM) approaches within the context of a real-world critical system. A new evaluation methodology is introduced, and applied to assess the practical safety benefits of three MLRM mechanisms. The proposed approach is compared to a default mitigation strategy (open a parachute when a failure is detected), and appears to be much safer.
