Software Verification and Validation for Automotive Functional Safety

By Megan Verkamp on Feb 20, 2020 6:06:00 PM

Redefine the Functional Safety Approach Embedded software for automotive application has increased in complexity, there is a need to revisit and upgrade the conventional design approach to fulfilling the functional safety objectives. This not only affects the design, but there is also a need to improve the verification and validation process as more and more software based units, such as ECU, continuously control or interact with critical systems, such as braking and steering.  Process and development methodology play important role in addressing challenges such as complexity, quality and ultimately the productivity when implementing functional safety. The model-based design has been extensively used in the automotive software industry and both OEMs and suppliers have already started adopting and implanting Model-Based design for their embedded software development.
