Abstract

This paper proposes a solution to the challenge of developing vehicle software application functions which are decoupled from their intended target hardware platforms. Once developed, these software application functions can be utilised across any OEM vehicle platform and vehicle variants, saving the supplier time and money in terms of system development and giving a number of OEMs similar tried-and-tested system application software. The proposed solution is to use the Model Driven Architecture (MDA)1, a UML-based development approach that separates the specification of system functionality from the specification of the implementation of that functionality on a specific technology platform. MDA allows a vehicle function to be modelled in a semantically rich UML [1,2] model which is completely independent of any implementation detail.
