  • Challenges for Auto Code Generation and Verifcation

    Page(s): 19 - 20
    Save to Project icon | Click to expandQuick Abstract | PDF file iconPDF (126 KB)  

    In the talk, we will describe the main challenges engineers face while using design automation tools with code generators to produce ready-to-embed code. We will focus on the difficulties finding runtime errors in the generated code. These errors may be caused by scaling choices, dictionary inconsistencies or simply design issues in the model. We will finally present the PolySpace product that can be used to find most of these errors. View full abstract»

  • In-Vehicle Network Design Methodology

    Page(s): 47 - 71
    Save to Project icon | Click to expandQuick Abstract | PDF file iconPDF (9013 KB)  

    Modern in-vehicle networks are often designed using grown and iterative design processes, making verification and test very time consuming and often lead to problems late in the development of a new vehicle. Changing the design paradigm to a structured engineering process based on Volcano concepts can lead to better, cheaper and easier network designs. In this presentation the Volcano concept and its benefits for real designs are explained. View full abstract»

    Save to Project icon | Click to expandQuick Abstract | PDF file iconPDF (2199 KB)  

    The automotive industry is characterized by numerous of product variants, often driven by embedded software. Significant are concepts for modelling variability in the software architecture and management of variability during software development. This presentation describes concepts for managing and modelling variability in variant rich Simulink architecture models. This is a precondition for a partly automation of variant configuration of embedded automotive software. View full abstract»

  • Model Style Guidelines for On-Target Rapid Prototyping

    Page(s): 81 - 89
    Save to Project icon | Click to expandQuick Abstract | PDF file iconPDF (2844 KB)  

    On-target rapid prototyping uses automatic code generation to execute embedded control software, such as powertrain control systems, on close-to-production hardware. This contrasts with rapid prototyping that typically uses much more powerful hardware than will be used in production. Rapid prototyping allows the designer to evaluate the functional behaviour of embedded software, however, it does not ensure that the final product will satisfy the performance requirements on a resource constrained, mass production embedded microprocessor. By contrast, on-target rapid prototyping additionally allows an assessment of how the automatically generated code will perform on final production hardware. On-target rapid prototyping is being widely adopted in today's automotive and aerospace development processes. The primary technology that enables this is Model-Based Design with automatic production code generation. This session introduces on-target rapid prototyping. It will also discuss modelling and code generation guidelines that help developers transition smoothly from traditional rapid-prototyping to on-target rapid prototyping. Workflow details presented include model conversion from floating-point to fixed-point, data dictionary creation, block and state machine selection, and optimal code generation settings.

  • Software Estimation- An Introdution

    Page(s): 101 - 118
    Save to Project icon | Click to expandQuick Abstract | PDF file iconPDF (5597 KB)  

    In many cases a successful project is one that meets a time and cost target that has been estimated by someone somewhere. The quality of this estimate will set the underlying probability of successfully completing the project. This presentation will discuss the basic factors that effect software estimation, and aims to show the benefits of formalising the estimation process to increase the understanding of key decisions that form the basis of an estimate. It will introduce the critical factors that ensure that we base our projects on information and assumptions that are clearly defined; easily understood and credible. It will also introduce the basic laws that govern software development, and the effect on project schedule. View full abstract»

  • The Influence of Transport Policy on Technology

    Page(s): 123 - 124
    Save to Project icon | Click to expandQuick Abstract | PDF file iconPDF (82 KB)  

    The advance of technology can be stimulated or hindered by transport policy. For example, issues such as the reduction in carbon emissions stimulate technological development in low-carbon or zero emission fuels. However, to what extent is transport policy the right driver for these advances: does it ask the right questions and obtain the best answers? This presentation uses two examples (security vs ethics, fuel-type vs management of demand) to discuss how a wide range of issues emanating from policy should affect the way in which technology progresses.

    The UK Office of Science and Technology has just completed a project under its Foresight Programme to explore how science and technology might be applied over the next 20-50 years to the design and implementation of Intelligent Infrastructure Systems that are robust, sustainable and safe. The Foresight Intelligent Infrastructure project was cleared by in the United Kingdom by the Ministerial Committee on Science Policy in summer 2004 and announced on the Foresight website in September 2004. It is planned that the project will finish towards the end 2005 with a formal Political launch now scheduled for the 19th January 2005. View full abstract»

    STEPs (Scenarios for the Transport system and Energy supply and their Potential effects) is a project being carried out as part of the European Union Sixth Framework Programme, under its 'Sustainable Surface Transport' priority. The project will reach its conclusion in July 2006, and so is now beginning to deliver initial findings regarding the likely impact on energy use and emissions of different policy and technology scenarios at regional and pan-European levels. This presentation will cover some of the initial findings and introduce the full range of findings expected from the project. View full abstract»
