Integrated Vehicle Health Management (IVHM) covers frameworks for detecting, diagnosing, and mitigating faults in hardware and structures in aerospace systems. Software Health Management (SHM) applies the goals of IVHM to software-intensive systems to detect software faults in real-time and to mitigate them. In this position paper, we describe the needs and challenges of SHM in automotive systems.
The two foci of this submission are:
i. Component-based engineering versus architecture driven engineering
ii. Safety and Functional Safety is a Requirement
The current trend in the automotive industry is the expanded use of embedded electronics connected to physical sensors and actuators in an effort to increase the functionality, robustness, and safety of new vehicles. Automotive safety, in an effort to prevent crashes and to protect the occupants in emergency situations, provides an ideal application for emerging innovations in Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS).
Automobile is an important application of CPS (Cyber Physical System). However, current software development process in the automotive industry is not adequate to solve the unique problems of CPS. This paper pinpoints the limitations of the current automotive software development process in the perspective of CPS and proposes a new kernel-based approach called HW componentizing kernel as a solution.
