The market requires automotive engineering teams to deliver both conventional and “green” or alternative fuel vehicles that meet the current and future environmental needs of their customers. And they must do this with smaller teams and less time between vehicle programs.

To meet the challenge, engineering organizations have moved away from a paper-and-prototype-vehicle design methodology to Model-Based Design.

Using MATLAB® and Simulink®, engineering teams are speeding up the development and calibration of embedded controllers; they are delivering vehicles that meet market requirements for safety, comfort, functionality, fuel economy, and vehicle performance.
