Model Based Development of Embedded Systems HT 17

Overal Goals

Model Based Development uses models todescribe the specifications, operation and performance of a system. Simulation, verification, and testing can be performed directly on executable models. Implementation can be automated by code generation directly from the model. The student will acquire skills in modeling embedded systems, and to use models for Simulation, verification, and testing, to derive implementations. Throughout the course, Simulink (and Stateflow) will be used as the modeling language, so the students will acquire mastery of Matlab/Simulink.


The following topics are central.
