Accelerated Life Cycle Development for Electronic Throttle Control Software using Model-Based/Auto-Code Technology
The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate our success in taking advantage of model-based development tools and auto-code technology to accelerate the typical life cycle development of powertrain software. In particular, we applied the technology as a clean sheet approach to Visteon's third generation Electronic Throttle Control system. In the process of applying model-based development and 100% auto-code, we identified various pitfalls and created solutions to overcome the gap between technology and development process during each phase of the entire software development life cycle. We will share our lessons learned during the requirement, design, implementation, and validation stages.
