Operating context assurance


  1. Define the autonomous capabilities of the AS.
  2. Define and validate the Operational Domain Model (ODM) for the AS.
  3. Define and validate the operating scenarios within the defined ODM.
  4. Create the operating context assurance argument.

Inputs to the stage

  • [A] : AS concept definition
  • [G] : AS operating context assurance argument pattern

Outputs of the stage

  • [B] : Operational domain model
  • [C] : ODM validation report
  • [D] : Autonomous capabilities definition]()
  • [E] : Operating scenarios definition
  • [F] : Operating scenarios validation report
  • [H] : AS operating context assurance argument

Description of the stage

As shown in Figure 5 above, this stage consists of four activities that are performed to define and validate the operating context for an AS. The artefacts generated from this stage are used to instantiate the AS operating context assurance argument pattern as part of Activity 4.

Additional guidance on assuring the safe operating context for autonomous systems can be found at [3].
