Body Electronics

To reduce design problems found late in development, engineers use Model-Based Design to capture, communicate, and validate system and subsystem specifications, develop rigorous acceptance tests, and generate AUTOSAR-compliant code.

Define and Verify State-Based Body Controllers Before Hardware Implementation

Engineers at OEMs and suppliers deliver complex comfort and convenience systems that interact with each other and the rest of the vehicle. Using Simulink and Stateflow®, they create executable specifications that enable them to find errors before hardware implementation when they are easiest to isolate and less costly to fix.

Meet Requirements for AUTOSAR-Compliant Applications

To deal with the growth in the number of electronic control units on the average vehicle, engineers use system design and simulation for developing components that comply with the AUTOSAR standard. MathWorks products enable engineers to:

  • Import AUTOSAR component descriptions into a new Simulink model, develop the algorithm details, then generate AUTOSAR code with updated component descriptions
  • Generate AUTOSAR code and component descriptions from an existing, unchanged Simulink model

"For the BCM project, we used virtual integration and test with executable functional models in Simulink to identify more than 95% of requirements issues before implementation—compared with just 30% before we started using Model-Based Design."
