Toyota adopted MathWorks tools like MATLAB, Simulink, Stateflow, and Real-Time Workshop as a total design solution. Toyota's initiative—and their development partnership with The MathWorks—was set in motion ten years ago, when the auto maker first chose MATLAB, then Simulink. "Our use of [these tools] has been gradually increasing," says Toyota spokesperson Akira Ohata; "We now have more than 400 licenses for MATLAB, Simulink, and Stateflow, and they have become the de facto standard at Toyota for simulation, data processing, and controls design. It would be impossible to list all of the applications for these tools at Toyota."
