Using Timber in a multi-body design environment to develop reliable embedded software
2008 (English)In: Intelligent vehicle iniative (IVI) technology controls and navigation systems, 2008: [held during the SAE 2008 world congress, held April 14 - 17, 2008 in Detroit, Michigan, USA], Warrendale, Pa.: Society of Automotive Engineers, Incorporated , 2008Conference paper (Refereed)
A major challenge for the automotive industry is to reduce the development time while meeting quality assessments for their products. This calls for new design methodologies and tools that scale with the increasing amount and complexity of embedded systems in today's vehicles.In this paper we undertake an approach to embedded software design based on executable models expressed in the high-level modelling paradigm of Timber. In this paper we extend previous work on Timber with a multi-paradigm design environment, aiming to bridge the gap between engineering disciplines by multi-body co-simulation of vehicle dynamics, embedded electronics, and embedded executable models. Its feasibility is demonstrated on a case study of a typical automotive application (traction control), and its potential advantages are discussed, as highlighted below:shorter time to market through concurrent, co-operative distributed engineering, andreduced cost through adequate system design and dimensioning, andimproved efficiency of the design process through migration and reuse of executable software components, andreduced need for hardware testing, by specification verification on the executable model early in the design process, andimproved quality, by opening up for formal methods for verification.
