The automotive industry is vital to Korea's economy, but development costs are increasing as automobiles become more technologically complex, fuel economy and security regulations tighten, and customer needs become more diverse.
The Automotive Control and Electronics Laboratory (ACE Lab), a research institute affiliated with Hanyang University in Korea, confronted this challenge by replacing their traditional control development process and software with MathWorks tools for Model-Based Design.
"The role of software tools is gaining importance as automotive technology becomes more complicated, developed, and diverse," says Professor Myoungho Sunwoo of the Automotive Engineering department of Hanyang University and manager of ACE Lab. "MathWorks tools for Model-Based Design enable us to unify our development process. Now, time delays and manual coding errors are minimized."
