A Methodology for Simulation and Validation of a Safety-Critical Electronic Control Unit for Integration Testing in Connected Hardware-in-the-Loop Environments
Paper in proceedings, 2015
Model-based software using Matlab & Simulink is indispensable in the automotive sector. Hence, the approaches for requirements engineering, development, verification, and validation in this area are deeply studied. This study focuses on their specific application for simulation models of safety-critical software and hardware components in the domain. A methodology for the above-mentioned software development steps is proposed. Each step is explained and considerations regarding safety are outlined. The study concludes with showing the feasibility of combining stakeholder knowledge with current literature on model-based development.
