ISO 26262 Standard

Apply Simulink and Embedded Coder to the ISO 26262 Standard

Applying Model-Based Design to a safety-critical system requires extra consideration and rigor so that the system adheres to defined functional safety standards. ISO 26262, Road Vehicles - Functional Safety, is such a standard. For further information about MathWorks® support for ISO 26262, see ISO 26262 Support in MATLAB and Simulink.

MathWorks provides an IEC Certification Kit product that you can use to qualify MathWorks code generation and verification tools for projects based on the ISO 26262 standard. For more information, see IEC Certification Kit.

Check for ISO 26262 Standard Compliance Using the Model Advisor

If you have a Simulink® Check™ product license, you can check that your Simulink model or subsystem and the code that you generate from it complies with selected aspects of the ISO 26262 standard.

To check your model or subsystem:

  1. Open the Model Advisor.

  2. Navigate to By Task > Modeling Standards for ISO 26262.

  3. Run the ISO 26262 (Simulink Check) checks.

For more information on using the Model Advisor, see Check Your Model Using the Model Advisor.

Validate Traceability

Typically, applications that require certification require some level of traceability between requirements, models, and corresponding code.
