Trustonomy carried out preliminary research to define the user requirements of the project concept. A publicly available document, “Trustonomy requirements”, reports on that and it specifically focusses on the scenario known as “Request to Intervene”, whereby a driver is required to take manual control back of a previously automated vehicle. A survey was undertaken to explore what characteristics/design considerations are important to users, with respect to the amount of trust they would have in the RtI scenario.
The vision of the Trustonomy project is to raise the safety, trust, and acceptance of automated vehicles. To this end, a simple framework has been designed to support the design of the component parts of the Trustonomy solution. The framework constitutes aspects of:
– Driver State Monitoring
– Human Machine Interface
– Risk assessment
– Early warning
– Trajectory Planning
– Driver training
– Driver trust

Using the seven components mentioned above a design guide, a methodology for eliciting system requirements from a broad set of users will be defined. Following this, small-scale data collection was undertaken and the requirements summarised for use as inputs into later project steps.
