As road vehicles increase their autonomy and the driver reduces his role in the control loop, novel challenges on dependability assessment arise. Model-based design combined with a simulation-based fault injection technique and a virtual vehicle poses as a promising solution for an early safety assessment of automotive systems. To start with, the design, where no safety was considered, is stimulated with a set of fault injection simulations (fault forecasting). By doing so, safety strategies can be evaluated during early development phases estimating the relationship of an individual failure to the degree of misbehaviour on vehicle level. After having decided the most suitable safety concept, a second set of fault injection experiments is used to perform an early safety validation of the chosen architecture. This double-step process avoids late redesigns, leading to significant cost and time savings. This paper presents a simulation-based fault injection approach aimed at finding acceptable ...
