One of the largest tier 1 suppliers of vehicle switches and components in Korea, LS Automotive continues to win contracts from both domestic and overseas automotive OEMs. There is an increasing demand from those OEMs for faster delivery of more features and for production systems that comply with the ISO 26262 standard.
To meet these demands, LS Automotive worked with MathWorks Consulting Services to adopt Model-Based Design with MATLAB® and Simulink®. On their first project with Model-Based Design, LS Automotive engineers modeled, simulated, and generated embedded software for a door area unit (DAU), which controls the vehicle’s power windows and mirrors.
“Our team is tasked with developing many projects—in addition to the DAU—with limited human resources,” says MyoungSuk Ko, senior engineer for the software design team at LS Automotive. “Model-Based Design enables us to overcome this limitation through model reuse, early verification of customer requirements, and the elimination of human errors that are common in manual coding. Model-Based Design is especially beneficial for back-to-back testing in the context of ISO 26262—it enables our customer to ensure consistency between the requirements models and the generated C code.”
