Operational Context-Based Design and Architecting of Autonomous Vehicles

Abstract : Autonomous Vehicles (AV) are emerging systems and considered cornerstones of the future of mobility. Their design is a source of many academic and industrial research efforts. The industrialization of AV is the mean for mobility stakeholders to strengthen their future position. AVs function by interacting with their operational environment and must be fit for their Operational Context (OC). Adapting AVs architectures to their Operational Context during design becomes an important challenge in designing robust AV.The current state of the art does not propose AV architecting methods based on the OC. This research work aims to support the architecting activities of Autonomous Vehicles to result in architectures fit for their Operational Context. An OC ontology for AV is proposed to support scenario identification and definition in the early design phase, for a scenario-based design approach. Using this ontology, a method to design AV logical architecture based on the OC is proposed. The consideration of the OC in the architecting activities of AV is strengthened with a second method aiming at assessing the impact of OC change on the AV’s architecture during the design phase. The proposed contributions are validated with industrial case studies on the design of AV architectures given the OC and its evolution
