We are on the cusp of a global technological breakthrough that will influence lives around the world. Robotics and autonomous systems (RAS) play an increasing role in our economic, public and domestic life. But they are not without risks. How do we ensure that they are dependable and safe?

The Assuring Autonomy International Programme is a world leader in advancing safety through pioneering research. We are working collaboratively across the globe to solve the issues faced in assuring the safety of RAS.

The Programme is a £12 million initiative funded by Lloyd’s Register Foundation and the University of York.
