The development of high-integrity systems within the automotive industry is characterized by demonstrating compliance with ISO® 26262, a standard for road vehicle functional safety. ISO 26262 classifies functions in automotive safety integrity levels (ASIL) from A to D – that is, from least to most stringent. OEMs and Tier-1 suppliers are adapting their ECU development processes to the international standard for ISO 26262, published in 2011.
Embedded Coder, Polyspace code verifiers, Simulink Verification and Validation, and Simulink Design Verifier are qualified with TÜV SÜD qualification assessments according to ISO 26262, covering ASIL A – D applications. The qualifications are based on an application-specific verification workflow. The workflow documentation, TÜV SÜD certificates, and additional tools and artifacts for ISO 26262 are provided in IEC Certification Kit (for ISO 26262 and IEC 61508).
"We leveraged MathWorks consultants to apply Model-Based Design for ISO 26262 on our new Integrated Restraints and Braking Controller (IRBC) developed with Simulink, Stateflow, Simulink Design Verifier, and Embedded Coder for production code generation and verification."
