In the eld of safety-critical real-time systems the development of distributed applications for fault tolerance reasons is a common practice. Hereby the whole application is divided into several distinct subsystems , which are afterwards mapped onto a set of associated processors called nodes. Cluster simulation provides a cheap and useful technique to test(More)
— The number of electronic systems in cars is continuously growing. Electronic systems, consisting of so-called electronic control units (ECUs) interconnected by a communication network, account for up to 30% of a modern car's worth. Consequently, software plays an ever more important role, both for the implementation of functions and the infrastructure. In(More)
— The automotive standard AUTOSAR provides a broad standardized basis for ECU software development consisting of over 80 software modules and libraries accompanied by an associated development methodology. The potential benefits of (re-)using these standardized software modules are undisputed and make the use of AUTOSAR very attractive. When deploying(More)
— The availability of inexpensive powerful microprocessors leads to increasing deployment of those electronic devices in ever new application areas. Currently, the automotive industry considers the replacement of mechanical or hydraulic implementations of safety-critical automotive systems (e.g., braking, steering) by electronic counterparts (so-called "(More)
