In this paper, the authors introduce a simulation-based approach for design and test of application software for time-triggered communication systems. The approach is based on the SIDERA simulation system that supports the time-triggered real-time protocols TTP and FlexRay. They present a software development platform for FlexRay based communication systems that provides an implementation of the AUTOSAR standard interface for communication between host application and FlexRay communication controllers. For validation, they present an application example in the course of which SIDERA has been deployed for development and test of software modules for an automotive project in the field of driving dynamics control.
