With the advent of software and electronics, automotive companies are enabling innovation to improve safety, driver experience, and fuel efficiency. Increasing use of software over the years, introduced the paradigm shift by requiring automotive companies to develop their systems using architecture and model-based techniques. Although model-based techniques using e.g. MATLAB/Simulink and Stateflow are being accepted in the automotive industry as standard languages and tooling for developing automotive control software, the techniques for system and software architecture and design are still far from being widely accepted except from the AUTOSAR standard, which is used to create the software for the Electronic Control Units (ECU).
