Car software firms team up for faster error detection

AbsInt Angewandte Informatik GmbH and dSpace GmbH have entered a partnership in which the companies will cross-connect dSpace's TargetLink series code generator with AbsInt's StackAnalyzer and Astree analysis tools. The result of the team up will allow automotive software developers to speed up error detection, stack overflows and runtime errors resulting from incorrect mode specs.

The connection of the tools combines model-based software development with the verification of non-functional requirements at implementation level. It enables a consistent development process from model design to code generation and certification and thus reduces development time and at the same time it improves the software quality.

TargetLink generates C code out of Simulink/Stateflow models. The AbsInt tools enable analysis, optimization and verification of embedded systems and safety-critical software code, in particular with respect to timing; they also can be used to rule out stack overflows. Astree identifies potential runtime errors in C code such as division by zero, invalid pointer access and arithmetic overflow.
