General Topics
The following topics are relevant to all of the panel discussions.
1. Data. What data is needed to enable a comprehensive in-time safety assurance system? What data is already available? How can we obtain data that is not currently available?
2. Risk Detection, Assessment, and Alerting. What issues must be overcome to provide risk detection, assessment, and alerting capabilities needed to enable a comprehensive in-time safety assurance system? What key research is needed to overcome these issues?
3. Decision Support and Response. What issues must be overcome to enable an in-time safety assurance system that (1) provides operators with advanced decision support and/or (2) independently initiates corrective action in response to some risks. What key research is needed to overcome these issues?
