NATICK, Mass. -- The MathWorks
Who: The MathWorks, the world's leading developer of software for technical computing and Model-Based Design for engineers and scientists in industry, government, and education; and student teams from Challenge X, a competition led by the Department of Energy and General Motors that gives engineering students hands-on experience in a real-world vehicle development process to better prepare them for careers in the automotive industry The automotive industry is the industry involved in the design, development, manufacture, marketing, and sale of motor vehicles. In 2006, more than 69 million motor vehicles, including cars and commercial vehicles were produced worldwide. and applied engineering.
* Experts from The MathWorks will present papers and provide demonstrations on applying Model-Based Design to applications in the automotive industry.
* Students will present papers on their use of Model-Based Design and MathWorks tools to reengineer a stock Chevrolet Equinox The Chevrolet Equinox is a mid-size crossover SUV from Chevrolet, introduced in 2004 for the 2005 model year to replace the Tracker. Although the Tracker is still in production in Mexico, it replaced the Blazer there. as part of the Challenge X student competition.
* A 2008 Chevrolet Tahoe The Chevrolet Tahoe (and similar GMC Yukon) is a full-size SUV from General Motors. Chevrolet and GMC sold two different-sized SUVs under their Blazer/Jimmy model names through the early 1990s. This situation changed when GMC rebadged the full-size Jimmy as the Yukon in 1992. Hybrid, an industry-first consumer vehicle, delivered on time, using Model-Based Design will be on display in the MathWorks booth.
Where/When: SAE World Congress, Cobo Center, Detroit, MI, April 14-17, 2008
At this year's SAE World Congress The MathWorks, located in Booth #1613, will showcase the latest advances in products supporting Model-Based Design and demonstrate how it is being deployed by the world's leading automotive manufacturers for production vehicle programs. The booth will feature a 2008 Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid. The development of its two-mode, full-hybrid propulsion was enabled by Model-Based Design, including automatic production code generation.
Experts from The MathWorks will participate in the technical program and provide in-booth demonstrations on applying Model-Based Design to automotive applications, such as the development of AUTOSAR-compliant software components, safety-critical embedded software Instructions that permanently reside in a ROM or flash memory chip. Embedded software may be immediately available to the CPU or, for faster execution, may be transferred to RAM first and then executed. , signal processing See DSP. systems, and improved embedded software reliability using PolySpace products.
