The ever increasing demand on the automobile industry to improve safety, driver and passenger comfort, connectivity and build environment friendly vehicles has given rise to dominance of electronics within the automobile.
This trend of electronics and thereby the embedded systems penetration into the automobile engineering enables the engineers to build intelligence into the automotive mechanical systems.
Added to the challenge of ever shrinking vehicle development timelines and cutting edge technological innovation happening in the auto industry, the increased use of electronics to build “intelligent mechanical systems” brings in its own challenges that increase the complexity for the automobile engineers.
The Model Based Design approach brings in the discipline and the ability to organizations seeking to manage complexity while staying innovative and competitive.
Understanding this inherent need of the customers, Satven had established a Mechatronics Lab with test bench set up for development, analysis, testing and functional verification of various ECUs for automotive systems and sub-systems.
