This new book presents the concept of Control Barrier Function (CBF), which captures the evolution of safety requirements during the execution of a system and can be used to enforce safety. It discusses how safety can be guaranteed via both theoretical and application perspectives and how it can be easily implemented in real-time systems that require high-frequency reactive control. Applications include autonomous driving, robotics, and traffic control.
