This chapter presents some aspects of model-based way of working applied in the EU funding projects called iCOMPOSE [1] and INCOBAT [2]. The presented results from INCOBAT project focus on basic structure that serves to organize/handle the technical complexity of the system under development. This approach was supported by the use case of INCOBAT battery system. The presented result from iCOMPOSE project focus on SysML model-based approach applied during the safety engineering development process and software integration of Integrated Comprehensive Energy Management System (iCEM). Some extensions to SysML profile are proposed and presented in this chapter and some findings on the data processing capabilities are discussed. The software development and integration of iCEM’s embedded software required also a dedicated toolchain which was established and deployed taking into account constraints typical for automotive domain like safety criticality, real-time applications, various communications interfaces, variety of tools involved in the development process.
