Online – Oct 20, 2020
14:00 – 15:00 Europe/London


In this presentation learn how a highly efficient approach for software partitioning and functionality assignment plays a vital role for delivering a rich solution – where, design constraints for functional safety of complex automotive E/E systems can be met. Practical design examples with a system-level framework for partitioned communication introduced into the AUTOSAR ECU systems will also be discussed. This topic was accepted at the AUTOSAR Open Conference 2020, the event was cancelled due to the pandemic.

This presentation will include:

  • Life-cycle coverage of ISO 26262 “Road Vehicles – Functional Safety” standard and a gap analysis of its 2011 and 2018 releases
  • Quantification of potential hazards through Automotive Safety Integrity Levels (ASIL) and ASIL assignment based on exposure probability, driver controllability and failure severity
  • Probable fault scenarios and strategies to achieve freedom of interference among software components and functions with different safety integrity levels onto integrated automotive embedded architectures
  • Partitioning design considerations including efficient load distribution, temporal & spatial isolation, effective core/memory utilization, reduced communication bandwidth, schedulability, and end-to-end communication protection

What You Will Learn

Methodologies to achieve freedom of interference among software components
Design constraints and solution approaches for software partitioning as it relates to functional safety aspects
Real-world illustrations of software functionalities split in an AUTOSAR layered architecture
