TRANSACT Plenary Meeting in Egersund, Norway, June 2022

Finally, the TRANSACT consortium came to together for the first time in person after one year of working together remotely. The plenary meeting was hosted by TRANSACT partner NAVTOR in the beautiful town of Egersund, Norway. During the two days we had the chance to tap into some of the most pressing topics of the project, align on what has been done and lay the foundation for the next months.

On the first day we presented the current status of the TRANSACT reference architecture and went into discussion about the next steps for the 2nd iteration of the reference architecture design. We also discussed the applicability of Eclipse POOSL for validating the TRANSACT architecture and its instantiation in the use cases. We enjoyed a hands-on tutorial organized by TRANSACT colleagues from TNO and TU/e.

Furthermore, we had the honor to have a presentation from Jabier Martinez and Alejandra Ruiz from TECNALIA about the AMASS1 framework and the corresponding tool Eclipse OpenCert. In this interactive session we discussed the applicability of this framework to the safety aspects of each of the TRANSACT use cases. E.g. the challenge of software re-certification when delivering (OTA-) updates in safety-critical applications was discussed. We thank Jabier and Alejandra for this very interesting session!

In the evening we enjoyed a lovely social event organized by NAVTOR – a perfect occasion surrounded by Norway’s beautiful nature to get to know each other better and build the relationships for a successful second year of TRANSACT. 

The second day we discussed the status of each work package and we shared the main achievements of the use cases during the first year of the project. Each of the use cases presented its significant progress towards the first demonstrator bringing the TRANSACT vision one step closer to becoming reality.

Many thanks to NAVTOR for hosting this meeting and for arranging such a nice social activity in Egersund!

1AMASS was an ECSEL JU project running from 2016 to 2019.
