Using AUTOSAR C++ Coding Guidelines to Streamline ISO 26262 Compliance

The automotive functional safety standard, ISO 26262, provides some guidance on software development and V&V processes, but it does not go in depth at the level of language constructs. To get such guidance, organizations are turning to coding standards like MISRA C/C++ or AUTOSAR C++. In this paper, we explain how to comply with ISO 26262 by using a static analysis tool that’s configured with AUTOSAR C++ 14 compliance checkers.

Using AUTOSAR C++ Coding Guidelines to Streamline ISO 26262 Compliance

Finding the Right Tool for AUTOSAR C++14 Compliance

Teams need to be well informed when selecting a static analysis tool for AUTOSAR C++ and ISO 2626 compliance to introduce into the team development workflow. Of utmost importance to the success of compliance, the static analysis tool should provide: high coverage of the guidelines in the static analysis checkers, advanced flow analysis technology, and support for the end-user in the tool qualification process.
