Before automotive OEMs purchase a new sensor system, they want to see a real-time prototype of the sensor working in a vehicle environment so as to evaluate its performance and potentially modify its specifications. To meet this requirement, we use a custom rapid control prototyping platform and Model-Based Design to build real-time prototypes of new designs early in the development process. The real-time prototype (known at Hella as an A-sample) serves both as a proof of concept and as a living specification throughout development…
