Proceedings of the 7th International ICST Conference on Simulation Tools and Techniques
This paper presents an analysis framework based on virtual prototyping to support the comprehensive evaluation of distributed, network based automotive applications. The framework enables functional and timing verification, performance and reliability analysis while reducing its complexity. Additionally the framework supports design space exploration of the overall system, considering target hardware/software and the system environment. The presented approach closes the evaluation gap between the initial design and the final system integration test. During the whole design process the analysis supports the designers in reaching eficient design decisions. The applicability of the proposed framework is demonstrated with the help of representative automotive use cases. Highlighted are benefits like the integration of existing software prototypes or the automation capability. The performance comparison with a widely used network simulation tool shows the competitiveness of the presented analysis framework.
