The MathWorks today announced the availability of Vehicle Network Toolbox, which directly connects MATLAB to a vehicle’s Controller Area Network (CAN), eliminating the need for additional connectivity tools and creating a powerful environment for streamlining test, verification, and analysis activities.
By enabling access to live vehicle communication data, Vehicle Network Toolbox brings the power of MATLAB to automotive engineers working on simulations, test cells, and prototype vehicles. MATLAB combines data acquisition capabilities with design and analysis capabilities, saving time and providing a more efficient workflow.
“Automotive designs are complex by nature, and this direct CAN connection is significant in its simplification of test, diagnostics, and design verification,” said Jon Friedman, automotive industry marketing manager at The MathWorks. “Vehicle Network Toolbox underscores the commitment on the part of The MathWorks to constantly help simplify and improve the design process.”
Vehicle Network Toolbox is available immediately for the Microsoft Windows platform. U.S. list prices start at $1000. For further information, please visit the product Web site at www.mathworks.com/products/vehicle-network/.
