An Ontology-based Model to Determine the Automation Level of an Automated Vehicle for Co-Driving

Abstract : Full autonomy of ground vehicles is a major goal of the ITS (Intelligent Transportation Systems) community. However, reaching such highest autonomy level in all situations (weather, traffic, . . . ) may seem difficult in practice, despite recent results regarding driverless cars (e.g., Google Cars). In addition, an automated vehicle should also self-assess its own perception abilities, and not only perceive its environment. In this paper, we propose an intermediate approach towards full automation, by defining a spectrum of automation layers, from fully manual (the car is driven by a driver) to fully automated (the car is driven by a computer), based on an ontological model for representing knowledge. We also propose a second ontology for situation assessment (what does the automated car perceive?), including the sensors/actuators state, environmental conditions and driver's state. Finally, we also define inference rules to link the situation assessment ontology to the automation level one. Both ontological models have been built and first results are presented.
