Volcano Vehicle Systems Architect (VSA)

Volcano Vehicle System Architect (VSA) is a systems design tool for AUTOSAR-based systems. It enables engineers to design automotive SW and HW architectures and to manage the relationships between the two. At the same time, it provides the user with required support to manage industrial-scale projects with distributed development partners.

VSA Product Features

  • SW architecture design - define SW components and compositions
  • HW architecture design - define ECUs, networks, sensors and actuators
  • Integration with industry-standard configuration management systems
  • Scripting language support provides implementation of consistency checks or custom operations
  • Consistency checks help ensure consistency of design data, both at the component and system level
  • True AUTOSAR compliance - VSA supports the full AUTOSAR meta- model and its formats
  • Captures system-level timing requirements by incorporating TIMMO elements within the AUTOSAR objects of the design
  • User-configurable organization of design data maximizes reuse of existing objects
  • Powerful merge feature allows combined design data to be edited in various locations
  • Generates AUTOSAR ECU extract and other AUTOSAR standard files
  • Supports the ODX diagnostics exchange format
  • Open, flexible, Eclipse-based platform enables creation of design environment tailored to individual needs

Highlights

VSA enables the design of the SW and HW architecture of an AUTOSAR system, the mapping of SW components (SWCs) to electronic control units (ECUs) and the system signals exchanged between them. VSA supports the full AUTOSAR data model and enables industrial-scale development projects with multiple users and iterative development through the use of integrated configuration management and merge technologies.

Architectural Design

  • Defines SW components and compositions
  • Defines ECUs, networks, sensors & actuators

Correct-by-Design Development Methodology

  • Leverages EAST ADL2 language and results of TIMMO research project
  • Provides foundation for contract-based development process where correctness can be guaranteed at design time

AUTOSAR Support

  • Integration with industry-standard configuration management systems
  • True AUTOSAR compliance – supports full AUTOSAR meta-model and its formats
  • Generates AUTOSAR ECU extract and other standard AUTOSAR files
  • Captures system-level timing requirements by incorporating TIMMO elements within the AUTOSAR objects of the design
