Workshop: Engineering Timing Correctness in ISO 26262
To address the challenges of building correct software timing behavior into automotive embedded software, Rapita Systems will be hosting a free one-day workshop entitled "Engineering Timing Correctness into ISO 26262 ECU software" at the Munich MOC on Tuesday March 24th 2015.
The need for getting software timing right is becoming more important, with influences from many sources: standards such as ISO 26262, which require timing to be explicitly considered; increasing interactions between electronic systems; multicore processors and other technical developments; and an emphasis on integrating more systems onto fewer ECUs.
These issues all combine to mean that timing is harder than ever to engineer correctly. In this workshop, attendees will be shown how to specify and verify timing constraints for automotive software systems. There will be a particular focus on how the constraints are affected by technologies such as the AUTOSAR Timing Extensions model and multicore micorcontrollers. Attendees will also be shown the (relatively lightweight) activities that can be performed at each stage of the V model specified by ISO 26262, and the benefits that arise from implementing them.
Rapita Systems' CEO, Dr Guillem Bernat remarked "Ensuring the correct timing behavior of embedded software is a significant aspect of automotive ECU development. It becomes even more important in the case of safety-related systems, such as those developed to meet the requirements of the ISO 26262 functional safety standard. "
"This workshop allows us to share the results of years of research in the area of critical real-time systems and industrial experience relating from applying industrial-strength tools to real-world problems."
Please note that places are limited, so early booking is recommended.
