MATLAB and Simulink for Startups

Build Your Electric Vehicle Startup with MATLAB and Simulink

Speed up your electric vehicle (EV) development using MATLAB® and Simulink® to develop embedded control software, gain insight into real-world usage, and reduce vehicle testing.

With MATLAB and Simulink, you can:

  • Run simulations to evaluate trade-offs and optimize designs
  • Re-use software by developing models
  • Validate requirements early through rapid prototyping
  • Generate code for prototyping or production, in floating- or fixed-point
  • Explore test fleet and production vehicle data to extract events and build models
  • Comply with AUTOSAR and ISO 26262 standards

Using MATLAB and Simulink for EVs

Development Process

MATLAB and Simulink enable you to:

  • Simulate system and key components, including:
    • Batteries (cells, modules, packs)
    • Fuel cells, including multi-stack fuel cell systems
    • Power converters (Buck/Boost converters, inverters, onboard chargers)
    • Electric motors
    • Full powertrain systems
  • Run model-in-the-loop (MIL) tests to verify embedded controller behavior without needing to access hardware or laboratories
  • Reuse MIL models for software-in-the-loop and hardware-in-the-loop tests
