Lessons Learned from Model Based Development of a Dependable Control-by-Wire System
Paper i proceeding, 2004

Volvo Car Corporation and the Royal Institute of Technology initiated a joint project named FAR in October 2002. FAR stands for Function and ARchitecture integration. There were 10 M.Sc. students in the project taking a special class. The focus of the project was the development of a portable drive-by-wire system using model based development and reference architectures. The deliveries from the project were a tool chain for automatic code generation from Matlab Simulink models and a prototype vehicle in scale 1:5. The project was very successful and the result was delivered to Volvo Cars in June 2003. The project deliveries have been further developed at Volvo Cars.
