Learning from Experience: The Worldwide Adoption of AUTOSAR 4.0.3 Thursday, September 19, 11:55 AM

Technical Session BMW, GM, and Volvo are currently deploying AUTOSAR in their production automotive projects. Mentor Graphics has gained significant experience working alongside these OEMs. In this session, attendees will learn how OEMs deploy the AUTOSAR 4.0.3 specification, how OEMs develop ECUs in AUTOSAR 4.0.3, and how automotive OEMs process their software design on a particular platform. Attendees will also see the common problems that arise when working with AUTOSAR, the advantages and disadvantages to certain approaches, and how many of the challenges were eventually solved.

ISO 26262 and AUTOSAR - Achieving a New Level in Vehicle Safety Thursday, September 19, 1:30 PM

Technical Session As the number of complex safety related electronic/electrical systems in today’s automobiles continue to grow hazardous events due to incorrect behavior in these systems will have to be prevented or properly mitigated. Standards such as ISO 26262 and AUTOSAR strive to reduce the risk of hazardous events and ensure the integrity of these systems by use of appropriate development processes and safety mechanisms within the architectural design. In this session we discuss ISO 26262-compliant development of safety related ECUs using AUTOSAR Basic Software (BSW). The discussion will focus on tier-1 and tier-2 responsibilities and development processes to fulfill ISO 26262 with regards to distributed development, the target ASIL, and integration of the BSW Safety Element out of Context (SEooC). To conclude this session we will describe some of the obstacles an AUTOSAR 4.0.x ECU project may encounter in terms of complying with ISO 26262, and at the same time give our advice on how to avoid or handle these.

Developing ECUs Using the Latest AUTOSAR Standard Thursday, September 19, 3:00 PM

Technical Session AUTOSAR 4.0 is still new on the market. For an ECU supplier the AUTOSAR way provides many new challenges and new tools are needed to be able to execute an AUTOSAR based project efficiently. Mecel is a development partner to Mentor Graphics for the AUTOSAR 4.x products, and also a System Integrator partner for Tier 1s in their AUTOSAR projects. In this session we will focus on how to make the efficiently introduce of AUTOSAR4.x as efficient as possible from an ECU supplier’s perspective. Attendees will be presented our experiences of different ECU supplier’s strategies in terms of system integration, configuration, testing, etc and how to use them to achieve efficient accomplish successful deliveries of AUTOSAR 4.x production projects.

Delivering Multi-domain Automotive Electronic Systems with GENIVI, AUTOSAR, and Hypervisor Technology Thursday, September 19, 4:20 PM

Technical Session Automobiles contain a number of domains including AUTOSAR (OSEK) , real-time OSs, and Linux. Advances in SoCs make the sharing of resources across multiple applications more appealing. Learn about some of the recently introduced SoCs that show promise for multi-domain implementations and how a real-time hypervisor can provide the necessary separation between automotive application domains.

  • A Closer Look at AUTOSAR Design Automation
    Toggle Abstract

    TECHNICAL SESSION AUTOSAR 4.3.0 is now being deployed by many of the world’s top automotive OEMs. Unfortunately, many of the Tier 1 suppliers are struggling with AUTOSAR complexity. Significant effort is being spent on behalf of the OEMs in the design, migration, configuration, integration, generation, and in the final build of AUTOSAR-based systems. In order for the Tier 1 suppliers to participate, a fundamental change is required at the software and tools companies to abstract away the AUTOSAR standard. This presentation gives an overview of the current situation, possibilities, and future direction of abstracting AUTOSAR for design automation purposes.

  • Model Driven Development of Reusable Electronic Control Software
    Toggle Abstract

    TECHNICAL SESSION An important aspect of today's development programs is choosing design and analysis methods that ensure that the end product functions as intended, is safe, can be delivered cost effectively, and will be reusable. With the increasing role of embedded software in the delivery of automobile functionality, it is particularly important to choose an effective software development methodology. With major new software requirements just around the corner, such as AUTOSAR compatibility and ISO26262 compliance, it is imperative to use a methodology that is adaptable to the future.

    This presentation will explore how a modern Model Driven Development (MDD) approach can be used to tackle the most common system design challenges and deliver high quality, reusable, future-proof software on time. The development flow offers a model-driven, virtual environment for software component engineering that permits early concept and requirements validation, architectural tradeoff analysis, execution and analysis across engineering domains, and transformation of the model to specific implementations. Unlike hand-crafted, prototype-driven methodologies, this solution provides a methodical, model-driven flow that automates software component delivery, can be verified early and cheaply, and can be flexibly targeted to architectures in use today or in the future.

  • AUTOSAR Driving Design Discontinuities
    Toggle Abstract

    GUEST SPEAKER While the dramatic increase in automotive software content is forcing associated costs to rise, AUTOSAR is completely transforming the automotive business models and design processes across OEMs and Tier companies. AUTOSAR introduces market disruption and verification discontinuities in the early adoption phases, but simulation and requirements tracking are two verification methodologies that can help drive and facilitate AUTOSAR adoption, enabling companies to leverage the entire scale of the AUTOSAR vision in the long term. We will present an outlook for AUTOSAR simulation to address faster, more efficient software and ECU network validation and optimization, IVI integration and Safety requirements, and requirements tracing through software and hardware.
