Industry Standards


AUTOSAR (AUTomotive Open System ARchitecture) is an open and standardized automotive software architecture, jointly developed by automobile manufacturers, suppliers, and tool developers. MathWorks is an AUTOSAR Premium Member and actively participates in the development of the standard with focus on how to use Model-Based Design with an AUTOSAR development process.

AUTOSAR standard provides two platforms to support the current and the next generation of automotive ECUs. The first is the Classic Platform, used for traditional applications such as powertrain, chassis, body and interior electronics, and so forth. The second is the Adaptive Platform, used for compute intensive applications such as highly automated driving, Car-to-X, software updates over the air, or vehicles as part of the Internet of Things. The Foundation AUTOSAR standard is introduced to enforce interoperability between the AUTOSAR platforms.

Simulink® natively support AUTOSAR, the AUTOSAR Blockset lets engineers to automatically map Simulink models to AUTOSAR specifications. It enables production code generation of AUTOSAR compliant code with Embedded Coder. Simulink, AUTOSAR Blockset and Embedded Coder support round-trip integration with AUTOSAR architecture as illustrated below.
