Model-Based Design of Embedded

Systems (Part 1 of 2)

Today, Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and suppliers

face the seemingly conflicting goals of reducing development

time and improving quality in the face of increasing demands to

reduce complexity while still delivering technical innovations. To

meet these challenges design engineers are increasingly turning

to embedded systems to deliver innovative functionality. It is not

uncommon for a luxury vehicle produced today to contain as

many as 90 Electronic Control Units (ECUs), using four different

network protocols and executing binary code generated from over

6 million lines of source code (MLOC). To meet this challenge,

many leading OEMs and suppliers are using math-based models

to support the development of the next generation of embedded

systems through a process that has become known as Model-

Based Design. In Model-Based Design, engineers use an

executable specification that lets them iterate quickly through

design concepts and simulations without needing to build physical

prototypes. Later, they can use these executable specifications

as the basis for real-time simulation and hardware-in-the-loop

testing, automatic code generation and increasing to perform

verification early in the process. Advanced safety technologies,

which help drivers avoid accidents and protect occupants

when there are accidents, are increasingly being adopted in the

automotive industry. The challenge in the development of these

technologies is to balance the driver¿s sense of control with the

oversight from the safety system. This session will focus on

Advanced Safety technologies that exist which could make driving

both a safer and pleasurable experience. In addition, the session

will explorer how to identify technologies that are able to reduce

the severity of crashes when they occur or mitigate injuries in

crashes that would have otherwise been fatal as well as to explore

the safety and driving performance benefits of these systems

where possible. Lastly, the session will also explore how mission

critical algorithms and the embedded systems necessary to

implement active safety systems are designed and verified for real

world applications.

executable specification that lets them iterate quickly through

design concepts and simulations without needing to build physical

prototypes. Later, they can use these executable specifications as

the basis for real-time simulation and hardware-in-the-loop testing,

automatic code generation and increasing to perform verification

early in the process. Advanced safety technologies, which help

drivers avoid accidents and protect occupants when there are

accidents, are increasingly being adopted in the automotive

industry. The challenge in the development of these technologies

is to balance the driver¿s sense of control with the oversight from

the safety system. This session will focus on Advanced Safety

technologies that exist which could make driving both a safer and

pleasurable experience. In addition, the session will explorer how to

identify technologies that are able to reduce the severity of crashes

when they occur or mitigate injuries in crashes that would have

otherwise been fatal as well as to explore the safety and driving

performance benefits of these systems where possible. Lastly, the

session will also explore how mission critical algorithms and the

embedded systems necessary to implement active safety systems

are designed and verified for real world applications.

The Military: Is It Becoming the New Test Bed for

Future Transportation Technologies?

In the past, the traditional thought was technology for civilian or consumer

vehicles flowed to military applications. The military would then be able to use

more commercially available vehicle in lieu of military spec’d ones. However,

in the era of tight research capital and the need for the military to develop

alternative fuel vehicles, the research conducted for the military is flowing to the

consumer side. The panel will discuss how and why the switch has occurred and

what are some of the greatest examples of the military to consumer research and
