The aim of the second Pilot Use Case is (a) to assess IRIS’s utility of disseminating actionable and accurate AI threats against availability; (b) to validate the capabilities of IRIS’s cybersecurity training platform as a learning tool for collaborative response to emergency incidents on autonomous transport; (c) to demonstrate how the IRIS platform can facilitate autonomous detection and risk-based response for privacy breaches; and (d) to evaluate IRIS’s virtual cyber range for establishing mature CERT/CSIRT communities equipped with processes and experience for AI-provision threat detection and incident response.

The city of Tallinn, which will host this Pilot Use Case, established a pilot trial of fully autonomous buses, which operate without a human driver and they are monitored by a centralised remote operation centre, while exchanging information for navigation with specialized roadside infrastructure. Telemetry data generated by the buses is published to an API into an “Urban Platform”; an abstract collection of services and microservices. Within the infrastructure, an AI/ML module which consumes the telemetry data via KAFKA data streams is provided by separate microservices that can also utilize 3rd party on-demand platforms.
