Abstract

In the last decades, vehicular control applications evolved to comprehensive Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) with exploding complexity.
Several simulation-driven approaches can ease their development, e.g., model-based design and driving simulators, which are often limited to functional traits.
To bridge this gap, virtual platforms can be used for accurately simulating the entire hardware/software layer, while validating beyond-functional properties (e.g., task execution times).
Moreover, multi-domain co-simulation standards enable combining such distinct ecosystems beyond tool and model boundaries.
Based on these concepts, this work presents a joint set of frameworks for virtualizing the ADAS prototyping flow via whole-system simulation.
The focus of the work lies in the design of an automotive-flavor virtual platform, ensuring accurate and fast hardware/software simulation.
To highlight the advantages of the framework system, two ADAS applications were prototyped in various configurations.
Lastly, algorithmic and system-level analyses are presented, alongside simulation performance evaluation.
