Increasing demands for cleaner engines, reduced development cycles, and new technology has made the task of designing Automotive Control Systems and software more difficult. Embedded control software is becoming more crucial to the performance of modern vehicles.
The use advanced techniques and tools to assist in the development process is becoming essential. MathWorks suite of tools (MATLAB/Simulink/Stateflow) is used by many of the major Automotive Companies (Daimler Chrysler, Ford, Toyota) to support their Automotive Control Design Processes.
MathWorks Ltd has over 10 years of experience in applying these tools in the automotive industry. Our team of highly qualified consultant engineers have experience of:
The power of MathWorks tools can be used to automate the complex development processes used by our clients. Data driven processes, such as engine mapping and calibration, can be made considerably easier and more robust through the development of custom applications written in MATLAB. Working closely with our clients, MathWorks Ltd is able to use the powerful scripting capability of MATLAB, including the use of object orientation and Graphical User Interfaces, to automate complex development processes, allowing engineers to handle and visualise large amounts of data in a natural and intuitive way.
dSPACE target processor systems allied to MathWorks high level design and code generation tools enable engineers to perform Rapid Control Prototyping and Hardware in the Loop Simulation and Test (HILST). These technologies enable prototype control algorithms to be developed natural high level graphical tools (Simulink and Stateflow) and tested on actual hardware quickly and easily without the need to write software.
Testing is a crucial part of most development processes but is often a time consuming and error prone process. MathWorks and dSPACE tools give engineers the capability to write test scripts to automate testing - and even to write the reports necessary to support ISO 9001 processes!
MathWorks Ltd consultant engineers have used these technologies to:
