The Functional Safety and Autonomous Vehicle Model-Based Development Paradigm Shift

Improve Performance, Increase Reliability, Reduce Cost with Model-Based Design

As the demand for connected and autonomous systems increases, so does the need for safer and faster code generation for complex control systems. Engineers must monitor the entire embedded control system and application design process from start to finish. Model-based design (MBD) helps address various difficulties and complexities, which arise during the lifecycle of embedded application software through visual prototyping and simulation of models. 

In an autonomous vehicle and electric vehicle functional safety landscape, MBD must be viewed as a requirement, not an option.

Today’s transportation market requires embedded systems that are customizable, scalable, and easily maintainable. The model-based design approach allows for robust validation and verification across multiple environments and faster code generation to keep up with the increasing demands of the autonomous vehicle. Embedded developers need to design faster and test earlier to create products with greater performance and faster time to market.

Validate and Verify Your Embedded Systems with Model-Based Design

 

LHP’s 4-Part Approach to Model-Based Design: 

 

  1. Upgrade current embedded systems to be compliant with functional safety and model-based design tools. 

  2. Generate embedded code that is functional safety compliant and ties in a real-time operating system (RTOS) for a full embedded system solution.

  3. Re-architect your current code for reusability, customization, and scalability. 

  4. Integrate MBD in an AUTOSAR environment.

 

Benefits of MBD 

  • Link designs directly to requirements
  • Integrate testing with design
  • Refine algorithms through multi-domain simulation
  • Automatically generate embedded software code and documentation
  • Develop and reuse test suites

 

LHP is uniquely positioned to help your organization get where it wants to go with over 20 years of MBD of embedded systems experience. No matter where you are in the process of implementing MBD, LHP can offer the engineering solutions, resources, training, and hardware/tool recommendations you need.
