Mathwork's Simulink verification tools qualified for automotive ISO 26262

MathWorks has announced that TÜV SÜD certified Simulink Design Verifier and Simulink Verification and Validation for use in ISO 26262 compliant development processes allowing automotive engineers to use this tool to develop embedded systems for vehicles more confidently.

MathWorks classified and pre-qualified the automatic test case generation capability of Simulink Design Verifier and the model coverage measurement capability of Simulink Verification and Validation according to the latest version of ISO 26262-8. TÜV SÜD subsequently assessed the tool classifications and pre-qualification results.

To further assist automotive engineers using early verification and validation for Model-Based Design, MathWorks enhanced the IEC Certification Kit product with certification evidence, reference workflows, and ISO 26262 tool qualification artifact templates for Simulink Design Verifier and Simulink Verification and Validation. With these recent additions, the IEC Certification Kit extends ISO 26262 tool qualification support for Model-Based Design and verification products, which already includes Embedded Coder and Polyspace code verifiers.

To support additional activities addressed by the ISO 26262 functional safety standard, MathWorks continues to work closely with partners offering complementary technology. As an example, medini analyze, a functional safety analysis tool offered by ikv++ technologies AG, can be used to automate automotive safety integrity level (ASIL) determination and decomposition as well as detailed safety analysis activities as required by ISO 26262 when developing high-integrity systems using Simulink.
