AUTOSAR RTE is the runtime environment for software components of application software. It is fully generated for each ECU to combine application components and the basic software. Until now, a conventional RTE had, for the most part, to be qualified for each project in order to support its use in safety-related applications. This ISO 26262 certified RTE reduces the effort required for such a project-specific qualification. The related safety concept is based on qualification of the RTE generator and the use of an automated analysis tool.
Unlike alternatives, Vector has implemented a solution that is entirely tool-supported. An analysis tool enables testing of the RTE for interference-free write accesses to memory. An automatically generated report supports the integration test required by ISO 26262. Another advantage of the Vector RTE is that it now permits mapping of safety requirements directly to the RTE. In combination with the safe AUTOSAR basic software from Vector, this makes it possible to develop safety-related applications which meet high demands for runtime behaviour with minimal qualification effort.
AUTOSAR RTE will be included with Vector’s MICROSAR Safe basic software, which is also certified, and is now available for all microcontrollers commonly used in the automotive field.
