Telelogic Rhapsody For Automotive

Rhapsody For Automotive, from Telelogic (STO:TLOG), is a SysML and UML solution designed and customized to address the needs of automotive systems engineers and software developers of automotive electronics. Rhapsody For Automotive is based on Telelogic’s Model Driven Development (MDD) environment.

Rhapsody For Automotive supports automotive industry standards, such as AUTOSAR, MISRA C, and OSEK. In addition, Rhapsody For Automotive supports the various standard automotive communication buses while allowing engineers to continue to leverage the benefits found in their existing algorithmic modeling tools, such as The MathWorks Simulink and Telelogic Statemate.

Rhapsody For Automotive Highlights

  • Supports leading industry standards:
    • AUTOSAR
      Supports the AUTOSAR standard via a profile that allows automotive systems engineers to capture an AUTOSAR Systems Model using a profile based on UML/SysML, while importing and exporting AUTOSAR XML for data exchange with other solutions in the process (Telelogic is a Premium member of AUTOSAR)
    • CAN, MOST, LIN, and FlexRay
      Provides engineers with the ability to model using abstract messages that are later mapped to the actual bus messages
    • MISRA C
      Enables systems and software engineers to generate compliant code by using the MISRA C modeling profile
    • OSEK
      Allows automotive systems engineers and software developers to generate code that targets an OSEK compliant operating system
  • Complements existing solutions
    Rhapsody For Automotive is the only UML/SysML based MDD environment that allows engineers to integrate computational algorithms captured in The MathWorks Simulink, as well as functional behaviors captured in Telelogic Statemate and protocols such as Bluetooth captured in Telelogic SDL Suite(TM). This integration enables engineers – from an architectural standpoint – to use the best tool for each part of the design and maintain IP capture in these solutions from previous designs.
  • Reduces development complexity
    By defining physical, functional and software architectures in a graphical manner, Rhapsody For Automotive simplifies the design and test process while accelerating code reuse.
  • Reduces development time
    Uses automation, including test execution and results, as well as generation of documentation and code, to help improve process efficiencies and shorten development cycles often faced by today’s automotive developers.
  • Enhances communication
    Rhapsody For Automotive uses standard graphics that significantly enhance communication among development teams, as well as with suppliers, who play a key role in the automotive development process.
  • Seamlessly integrates with requirements management and configuration management solutions
    Rhapsody For Automotive lets engineers use Requirements Management solutions such as Telelogic DOORS and Siemens UGS Teamcenter(TM), while allowing them to elaborate these requirements in a model using Use Case Diagrams, Sequence Diagrams and Requirement Diagrams. Additionally, Rhapsody For Automotive offers integration capabilities with Telelogic Synergy or any SCCI compliant Configuration Management product.
