The electrification of today's vehicles and the high amount of new assistance features imply more and more complex systems. The sensing and controlling of these systems is the work of the highly distributed and connected electronic control units. To keep pace with the fast growing automotive market, reusability of components and features is today the key to reduce costs and time-to-market. Especially when systems are safety-critical and demand reliability, new methods and tools are thus essential to support the reusability aspect in the development process. A model-based approach, in conjunction, moreover helps to communicate between different stakeholders, provides different views and serves as a central storage of information. Through applying reliability analysis and simulation-based verification methods on our hardware model and furthermore automatic generation of a first virtual prototype, we are able to reduce the tools involved, thus resulting in correctness, completeness and consistency of the entire system.
