This training class describes how to develop and safeguard safetycritical embedded software in serial projects with Simulink in compliance with ISO 26262 (part 6). Beginning with a general overview of the ISO standard, we proceed by focusing on the ISO 26262 requirements that are specifically relevant to modelbased development. We address the impact the standard has had on model-based development with Simulink, as well as the requirements for model and software architecture in safetycritical software. We also look at modeling guidelines and testing before wrapping up the class by assessing ISO 26262 readiness of controller functions. All theoretical knowledge is supplemented by means of several practical examples, which you can take straight back to your desk.

Target Audience

This training class is designed for developers, testers, project managers, and quality managers, whose focus is modelbased development of safety-critical embedded software using MATLAB/Simulink.
