A Cost-Effective Model-Based Approach for Developing ISO 26262 Compliant Automotive Safety Related Applications - Technical Paper

Automotive manufacturers and their suppliers increasingly need to follow the objectives of ISO 26262 as it is now state-of-the art and as it is the case that an ever increasing number of active and passive safety systems are developed within cars. This has increased the need to define a safe system development process. ANSYS has the only comprehensive simulation solution to produce ISO 26262 certifiable code for autonomous vehicles, ensuring the safety of autonomous vehicles. It will also speed up the design process to get new products to market faster than ever before. This paper proposes a model-based approach including automatic and certified code generation to efficiently implement the embedded software that controls these systems while meeting the needed safety requirements and obeying the rules of ISO 26262.
