Existing vehicle electronics design is largely divided by feature, with integration taking place at a late stage. This leads to a number of drawbacks, including longer development time and increased cost, both of which this research overcomes by considering the system as a whole and, in particular, generating an executable model to permit testing. To generate such a model, a number of inputs needed to be made available. These include a structural description of the vehicle electronics, functional descriptions of both the electronic control units and the communications buses, the application code that implements the feature and software patterns to implement the low-level interfaces to sensors and actuators.
