Automotive mega trends such as electrification, autonomous driving and shared mobility bring new sets of opportunities and challenges in designing vehicles of the future. MathWorks provides the Powertrain Blockset™ that includes component libraries and reference application models for validation and testing of petrol, diesel, hybrid and electric powertrains. It is well suited for essential powertrain development activities such as design tradeoff analysis and component sizing, control parameter optimization and hardware-in-the-loop testing.
For engineers working on behavior of a vehicle in motion, MathWorks also offers Vehicle Dynamics Blockset™ that allow ride and handling analysis, chassis control development, software integration testing and hardware-in-the-loop testing. The blockset supports 3D visualization of driving scenarios simulated from reference application models and component model libraries for propulsion, steering, suspension, vehicle bodies, brakes and tires.
Sharing and deployment of applications is critical in product development. We will use part of the session to showcase an example highlighting how users can easily obtain custom simulation data without having to install any additional software on their PC by creating a Web-App with Simulink Compiler™.
