Model-Based Development of Automotive Embedded Software in Compliance with ISO 26262

This 2-day intensive training class, taught by experts from Model Engineering Solutions (MES) – dSPACE TargetLink Strategic Partner, describes how to develop and safeguard safety-critical, embedded software in serial projects with Simulink® in compliance with ISO 26262 (part 6). Beginning with a general overview of the ISO standard, we proceed by focusing on those requirements of the ISO 26262 that are specifically relevant to model-based development. We address the impact the standard has had on model-based development with Simulink, as well as the requirements for model and software architecture in safety-critical software. We conclude with a discussion on assessment of readiness of controller functions, according to ISO 26262. Theoretical aspects are illustrated by means of many practical examples, which you can take straight back to your daily development tasks.
