AUTOSAR (AUTomotive Open System ARchitecture) is an open and standardized automotive software architecture, jointly developed by automobile manufacturers, suppliers, and tool developers. MathWorks is an AUTOSAR Premium Member and actively participates in the development of the standard with focus on how to use Model-Based Design with an AUTOSAR development process.
With Simulink and Embedded Coder, engineers can import and export AUTOSAR Software Component descriptions and generate AUTOSAR production code in one integrated environment. Simulink supports AUTOSAR using model configuration settings rather than AUTOSAR-specific blocks. As a result, a single Simulink model can be used as a golden reference for simulation, rapid prototyping, and production code generation in both AUTOSAR and non-AUTOSAR environments. Capabilities for developing AUTOSAR applications in production are provided using the Embedded Coder Support Package for AUTOSAR.
