VSTS19 Software Testing Case Study Using VECTORCAST: Testing an autonomous vehicle sensor module.

The session presents Pi Innovo's experience of developing an Autonomous Vehicle Custom ECU with modern application software testing using VectorCAST. Pi Innovo developed a custom embedded controller for autonomous vehicle application.   The embedded controller developed was based on the following high-level requirements:
  • Functional safety (ISO 26262)
    • Full redundant ASIL-D
    • Fail-operational robustness to single-point failures (internal redundancy)
  • Data transmission using 100BASE-T1 automotive ethernet (2-wire)
  • Data time stamping asynchronous sensor readings, based on vehicle's master clock module
  • Measurement and processing of high-resolution... View More
