This 2-day training workshop provides a practical overview of how to develop and safeguard safety-critical embedded software in serial projects with Simulink®, Embedded Coder®, and TargetLink® in compliance with ISO 26262. Beginning with a general overview of the ISO standard, we proceed by focusing on those requirements of the ISO 26262 that are specifically relevant to model-based 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 safety-critical software. We wrap up the workshop by assessing ISO 26262 readiness of controller functions. All theoretical knowledge is illustrated by means of many practical examples, which you can take straight back to your desk.

This training workshop is also available as an on-site workshop.
In this case our instructors can tailor the curriculum to meet your specific needs.

Target audience

The training workshop is designed for developers, testers, quality managers, project managers and team leaders, whose focus is the model-based development of safety-critical embedded software using MATLAB®/Simulink® in combination with Embedded Coder® or dSPACE TargetLink®. Only basic modelling knowledge with Simulink® and Stateflow® is assumed.
