Knowledge Based Engineering to Support Automotive Conceptual Design and Automatic Control Software Development

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE, volume 194)


The global motor vehicle production is rising steadily year by year. These vehicles have an increasing amount of electronic components and associated control software. As a result, the control software development becomes a key aspect and time consuming part of the design.
