A holistic concept for design and implementation of in-vehicle networks using the standardized CAN and LIN communication protocols has been developed, taking into account recent findings from real-time research. The Volcano concept relies on an integrated chain of high-level tools and carefully engineered software. The total chain provides requirement capture, model based design, automatic code generation and system level validation capabilities. Guaranteed “Design to correctness” capability in complex distributed architecture is a unique capability of Volcano helping to reduce unit cost, shorten design time and improve quality. The concept is successfully used in production since 1998.
