csXception®: First Steps to Provide Fault Injection for the Development of Safe Systems in Automotive Industry
The increasing complexity on the vehicles electrical and/or electronic components has introduced a challenge to automotive safety. Standardization efforts have already been made, leading to the ISO-26262 functional safety and the AUTOSAR architecture definition, providing a development process that addresses safety and quality issues. With the goal of ensuring safety properties, this paper presents a fault injection tool (csXception®), developed by Critical Software, and the first steps towards injecting faults on ARM® Cortex-M3 microcontroller using the SCIFI technique for assessing AUTOSAR systems.
