Model-Based Design Approach for Automotive Applications

R. K. Shenoy, Robert Bosch Engineering and Business Solutions Limited

Automotive electronics have gained very high significance over the past three decades. This system operates by sensing the relevant environment, computing the necessary action, and executing the action by actuating a mechanical component. The electronics in today’s cars already exceed 20% of the total vehicle value, and this is estimated to increase further in coming years. The cars of the future will do much more to avoid accidents, protect and entertain their occupants, and be gentler on the environment.

There is an ever-increasing need to reduce ECU production development cost, enhance quality, and shorten the development cycle time. Model-Based Design seems to play a key role in achieving the above results. This presentation focuses on the main components in a Model-Based Design framework and factors to be considered when an organization transitions from conventional development framework to the Model-Based Design framework. The presentation also talks about incorporation of various automotive standards such as AUTOSAR, ASPICE, and ISO 26262 in the new framework.
