Verification and Validation According to ISO 26262: A Workflow to Facilitate the Development of High-Integrity Software

By Mirko Conrad, MathWorks

Model-Based Design with production code generation has been extensively utilized throughout the automotive software engineering community because of its ability to address complexity, productivity, and quality challenges. Engineers have begun to consider Model-Based Design for developing embedded software for applications such as lane departure warning and electromechanical steering that need to comply with ISO 26262 and other functional safety standards.

Developers of high-integrity in-vehicle software need to understand and implement the standard‘s requirements pertaining to software development. Due to the widespread utilization of Model-Based Design to develop automotive E/E systems, it is of particular importance to set up ISO 26262 compliant Model-Based Design processes and tool chains.

This paper discusses a verification and validation workflow for developing in-vehicle software components that need to comply with ISO 26262-6 using Model-Based Design.
