TECHNICAL SESSION If you design automotive systems, you no doubt deal with mechatronic elements at some point in your design cycle. Mechatronic technologies make possible many advances in modern automotive systems design. Historically non-electrical systems are being improved using combinations of sensors, actuators, electronics, and software. The benefits are tangible and measurable: better performance, higher reliability, and a safer ride. Mechatronic systems enable features and functionality that, until recently, design teams could only wish for. But designing a system that takes full advantage of mechatronic technologies is beyond the repeated “design > prototype > test” cycles of typical design processes. Getting a mechatronic system from specification to implementation within ever-shrinking market windows requires a shift in development methodology, where lab-based design and troubleshooting are shifted to the virtual world of modeling and simulation. Design teams need tools and techniques that assemble multiple mechatronic system disciplines into a single design and analysis environment.
This session presents an innovative mechatronic system integration capability featuring SystemVision, Mentor Graphics’ solution for complex mechatronic system development. You will learn how SystemVision uses standards-based modeling, and advanced simulation and analysis capabilities, to help automotive design teams combine mechatronic system elements into a single, comprehensive modeling and analysis environment. Join us to see how SystemVision's standards-based modeling, and advanced simulation and analysis capabilities, can help you tackle your mechatronic system design challenges.
