The MathWorks announced that Visteon Corp., a global tier one automotive supplier, is deploying The MathWorks embedded code-generation technology. Jaguar also uses The MathWorks’ code-generation products.

The embedded-code technology is based on MATLAB and Simulink and is being used to develop powertrain electronic control units. The MathWorks software provides increases in productivity, time and cost savings, and the flexibility to meet automakers' stringent requirements for customized controllers.

Visteon cites numerous benefits from the use of MATLAB, including smaller code size through autocoding and the ability to leverage a growing library of reusable models. These capabilities aid Visteon in helping automakers differentiate their brands in response to the varying needs of automakers and consumers around the world.

The MathWorks production code-generation software provides a development environment that employs executable graphical models for specifying and implementing embedded software. Using a model-based design approach, engineers can design, validate, automatically generate, and verify code in the Simulink and Stateflow modeling environment. As a result, specification and design defects are caught earlier in the software design cycle.
