Trustonomy has recently released the deliverable D2.3 “Trustonomy Functional Architecture” with the objective to define the conceptual architecture of the Trustonomy toolset.
The resulting architecture will provide a conceptual specification of the solution: actors and roles, process models showing interactions, conceptual information models and open services that support interoperability between loosely coupled systems. Existing frameworks and models, where appropriate, and interoperability and information demands have been considered in order to develop the necessary service/communication interfaces.
More specifically, the process to define the Trustonomy architecture followed an incremental analysis, resulting in a modular architecture that consists of independent building blocks that include both software modules and methodologies. These have been identified at a conceptual level, namely Driver State Monitoring (DSM) Assessment Framework, Human-Machine Interface (HMI) Design Assessment Framework, Automated Decision Support Framework, Driver Training Framework, Driver Intervention Performance Assessment Framework and Trust and Acceptance Measurement Framework.
The Trustonomy building blocks will be used to investigate, setup, test and comparatively assess, in terms of performance, ethics, acceptance and trust, different relevant technologies and approaches related to autonomous driving. Two additional, functional components were added in the overall Trustonomy architecture, the Data Management layer and the Trials Support Tool. These represent ICT supporting tools that assist in data management and demonstration execution respectively. The derived architecture includes the description of all functional entities such as components and modules of the individual Trustonomy blocks and presents a high-level specification of their internal and external interfaces. Business processes are also addressed within this report, defining the key Trustonomy actors and roles and also, identifying the main business processes, presenting how these actors interact with the Trustonomy system.
