System/Software development for a centralized vehicle functions control unit

Be ingenious

Customer: Automotive OEM

Market: Heavy Duty on highway – European market

BRACE execution: Model Based Design & Auto-coding in cooperation with Chassis domain cluster

Location: Customer site

For an OEM BRACE worked on additional vehicle functions (to aid the driver in terms of safe, comfortable and fuel efficient driving) and a change in vehicle electronic architecture.

New functions were developed in Mathworks Simulink and were converted to target specific software code. In this process optimization for the target was performed. Key items were traceability from model to code and back and comparisons in flow and performance for model versus code.

Also legacy code and target supplier low level software functions needed to be taken into account for the integration on the target.
