Course Details

This version of Stateflow for Logic-Driven System Modeling is for automotive engineers looking to model and simulate event-driven and logic systems. This two-day course offers hands-on automotive examples and exercises that apply basic techniques to realistic problems in the automotive industry.

Topics include:

  • Flow charts
  • State machines
  • Hierarchical state machines
  • Parallel state machines
  • Events in state machines
  • Functions in state machines
  • Truth tables
  • State transition tables
  • Component-based modeling
