Development of AUTOSAR Software Components within Model-Based Design 2008-01-0383
The steady growth in the number of electronic control units on the average vehicle and the complexity of the algorithms that reside on these controllers has resulted in one of the most significant initiatives in the automotive industry in years. AUTOSAR - the Automotive Open System Architecture - has united more than 100 companies, automobile manufacturers, suppliers and tool vendors to develop a standard architecture for electronic control units. By the end of 2006 Version 2.1 was released, and now OEMs as well as suppliers have started to develop and integrate AUTOSAR-compliant functionality and components into vehicles.
This paper will focus on the approach and challenges faced by engineers developing AUTOSAR-compliant production code using Model-Based Design.
