MathWorks Offers AUTOSAR 4.0 Production Support with Simulink

Natick, Mass. - (2 Jul 2012)

MathWorks today announced that Simulink, Embedded Coder, and the AUTOSAR Target Production Package (ATPP) now support AUTOSAR 4.0. AUTOSAR support provided by Embedded Coder and the ATPP is prequalified to ISO 26262 according to TÜV SÜD, as described in IEC Certification Kit (for ISO 26262 and IEC 61508).

Automotive manufacturers and suppliers are increasingly adopting the latest release of the AUTOSAR standard, 4.0, in production programs. Now, automotive engineers can use Simulink to develop production AUTOSAR 4.0 applications with Model-Based Design.

AUTOSAR 4.0 support is offered through:

  • Import and export of AUTOSAR 4.0 software component description files
  • Enhanced support for calibration and data measurement enabling workflows to use exported ARXML with RTE generation tools
  • Enhanced support for AUTOSAR 4.0 data type concepts
  • Support for more than 300 routines from AUTOSAR 4.0 libraries

“Simulink and Embedded Coder enabled us to automatically generate AUTOSAR-compliant C-code and other AUTOSAR artifacts,” says Abdulvahap User, head of the embedded application software department at IAV, an engineering company that works (among others) for the Volkswagen Group. “This approach improved communication with Volkswagen and our suppliers, and enabled us to verify the application early in a software-in-the-loop testing environment.”

“When working on standards such as AUTOSAR, OEMs, suppliers, and the various other parties involved in development are best served by adopting a consistent technical workflow,” says Jon Friedman, MathWorks manager for Aerospace & Defense and Automotive Industry Marketing. “Now, automotive engineers have a workflow that both simplifies communication through the use of Model-Based Design and also helps meet AUTOSAR 4.0 production goals.”
