A Model-based Approach for Vehicular Systems

This paper introduces a novel model-based approach for the software development of vehicular embedded systems. The proposed approach discloses the opportunity of improving efficiency of the development process by providing support to identify viable design solutions with respect to selected non functional requirements. To this end, it leverages the interplay of two modelling languages for the vehicular domain whose integration is achieved by a suite of model transformations. An instantiation of the methodology is discussed for timing requirements, which are among the most critical ones for the development of vehicular systems. The applicability of the methodology is demonstrated as proof of concepts on industrial use cases performed in cooperation with our industrial partners.
