Model-based Development of Vehicle Software

Mazda has been promoting model-based development (MBD) at the system, hardware, and software levels to improve design quality prior to prototyping and actual vehicle verification. In the software area, we have designed the gasoline engine control as a specification that runs on a model by MATLAB/Simulink/Stateflow, verified it with MILS, advanced HILS from as an actual control unit, and MBD for vehicle verification, and expanded into the advanced driver assistance system (ADAS). In order to integrate and control such dynamics systems and information control systems such as connectivity in the automotive transformation period represented by CASE, we are also working on model-based development of information control systems.
