DeSCAS Design Process Model for Automotive Systems – Development Streams and Ontologies 2009-01-0762
The project DeSCAS (Design of Safety-Critical Automotive Systems) strives for introducing a human-centered design process for the development of advanced driver assistance systems for land-based vehicles. A well-structured meta-model building upon the ‘V-Model XT’ is essential to interweave differently geared and interrelated development activities within one formal process model. The corresponding development steps make use of OWL-based ontologies to precisely capture generic concepts as well as specific knowledge of the respective development domain. Relevant standards like the ISO/CD 26262 and the ‘Code of Practice’ (RESPONSE 3) for advanced driver assistance systems are related to the sketched DeSCAS process and its elements.
