van Deventer, J., Kruglyak, A., Nordlander, J., and Delsing, J., "Platform Independent System Integration," SAE Technical Paper 2011-01-0211, 2011, doi:10.4271/2011-01-0211.
This paper presents and demonstrates a paradigm to implement automotive systems based on their specifications in a manner that is platform independent. The advantage is to have the same software used in simulation as on different types of micro-controller in a vehicle as well as to ease the integration of different systems. The paradigm is to model the system's components as reactive objects and to use the Timber kernel to schedule their (re)actions. The demonstration is done by developing an anti-lock braking system within the simulation software CarSim and Simulink, which is then evaluated on a braking maneuver over a surface with different coefficient of adhesion from side to side (split mu).
