Project Activity 7 - Objectives
As this is a project activity focussed around a specific application context it cuts across many of the existing PAs with more abstract aspirations. Considerations of safety may raise timing issues of interest to PA1. Studies of what privacy means to householders may raise issues of interest to PA2. The objectives of PA7 are;
The following studies are currently being carried out:
We are also examining the possibility of adapting techniques such as hazard analysis from safety critical domains such as aviation and seeing whether they can be applied in a domestic setting.
A building block model of dependability is also being developed based on the dimensions of dependability that are potentially important in a domestic setting: usability, usefulness, utitlity, learnability, configurability, repairability, processes, aesthetics, standardisation, cost models, patterns and routines, openness, safety, privacy and integrity.
