Engineering Students Also Present Their Use of Model-Based Design for Hybrid-Electric Vehicle Development
NATICK, Mass -
Who: The MathWorks (Booth #1301), the world’s leading developer of software for technical computing and Model-Based Design, and a student team that participated in Challenge X (the predecessor to EcoCAR), a four-year long collegiate advanced vehicle technology engineering competition, established by the United States Department of Energy (DOE) and General Motors.
What: This year’s SAE World Congress will feature MathWorks representatives presenting 11 technical articles that highlight the latest advances in Model-Based Design and the supporting products such as those used for verification and validation, signal processing, and physical modeling. In booth #1301, MathWorks engineers will be showcasing how Model-Based Design is applied to AUTOSAR software development, high-integrity systems, automotive safety systems, production ECU projects, as well as the new Vehicle Network Toolbox.
General Motors and representatives from The Ohio State University’s Challenge X student team will also present a paper on their use of Model-Based Design and MathWorks tools to aid in their reengineering of a stock Chevy Equinox as part of the Challenge X competition.
