PRQA: code analyser for AUTOSAR C++14 coding guidelines

PRQA has announced the first commercially available tool for automatically applying the new AUTOSAR C++14 Coding Guidelines. The AUTOSAR Compliance Module is an extension to the QA·C++ 4.2 automated static code analysis tool.

The AUTOSAR (AUTomotive Open System ARchitecture) development partnership is working on “Guidelines for the use of the C++14 language in critical and safety-related systems” in order to help ensure the safety and security of the code written by implementers of AUTOSAR software. PRQA was invited to become an AUTOSAR development partner and to join the working group responsible for development of the guidelines, because of the expertise in the C++ programming language and best practice software development that it has established over the last 30 years.

The Coding Guidelines are delivered as part of the AUTOSAR Adaptive Platform, aimed at high-performance computing ECUs for fail-operational systems for use cases such as highly autonomous driving.  It is validated through the adaptive platform demonstrator, an AUTOSAR-internal implementation written in C++. The QA·C++ analysis tool was used to ensure the quality of the demonstrator source code and to verify that it complies with the Coding Guidelines.
