A Quick Overview

MATLAB Model-Based Development (MBD) is an Embedded Software Development Technology, where a model is used to verify the design requirements & that model is realized as a code which finally runs on target hardware. MBD can be implemented across all systems in automotive software development platforms, one such being the Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS). ADAS is an electronic system which helps the driver to ease the process of driving. 

Learning this course would enhance your knowledge on some of most sought - after concepts in automotive embedded software development:
  1. Model-Based Development
  2. Model in Loop Testing (MIL)
  3. Software in Loop (SIL) Testing
  4. Auto Code Generation
  5. Development of an ADAS feature from scratch. 
Most of the leading automotive firms are constantly on the look-out for engineers with strong MATLAB / Simulink knowledge along with a good knowledge in MBD & MIL - SIL testing.
