The design of complex systems, as in the case of autonomous vehicles, requires a specialized systems engineering methodology and an adapted modelling framework. In particular, the integration of non-functional requirements, as important as the Safety, requires from this methodological framework the well-adapted semantic expression of constraints as well as their traceability during all phases of analysis, design and implementation. This paper focuses on the study of model-based autonomous system design and investigates the design flows and initiatives grasping with this complex computational model. The specialization of the ARCADIA methodology will be illustrated in a real industrial case.
