The Motor Industry Software Reliability AssociationÂ (MISRA) has announced a public review of its autocode guidelines. These guidelines have been produced to “encourage good modelling practices and avoid poorly-defined features of the modelling language” in control system modelling packages.
The guidelines are divided into three areas:
- MISRA SLSF – guidelines for users of SimulinkÂ and Stateflow.
- MISRA TL – guidelines for users of Targetlink.
- MISRA ACG – guidelines for compliance with MISRA C in automatically-generated code.
The review is open until 31st March 2007. In order to participate you have to complete and send off a form at http://www.misra.org.uk/misra_ac_eoi.pdf. (NB The form gives a deadline of 28th February but this deadline has changed.)
Unfortunately I was unable to secure a speaker from MISRA to talk about the guidelines at Code Generation 2007. Maybe next year…
