Verifying Code to Be Safe and Secure with Static Analysis in Polyspace

With growing complexity in embedded software, software testing and reviews are getting more time-consuming and challenging than ever before, particularly for high-integrity applications. Software testing can only show the presence, but never the absence of errors. Formal methods-based static analysis can exhaustively prove the absence of certain run-time errors and properties of generated or handwritten C and C++ code.

This demo shows how to apply Polyspace® static analysis to:

  • Comply with MISRA® coding guidelines
  • Achieve credits to IEC 61508, ISO 26262, IEC 62304, and DO-178 requirements
  • Uncover security vulnerabilities according to CERT-C and ISO 17961
  • Fix programming defects as soon as they are introduced

Predictive Maintenance with MATLAB and Simulink

Predictive maintenance is the intelligent health monitoring of equipment to avoid future failure. In contrast to preventive maintenance, which follows a set timeline, predictive maintenance schedules are determined by analytic algorithms and data from equipment sensors, saving resources and increasing uptime of assets.

Visit this showcase to understand how you can use MATLAB® and Simulink ® to easily develop predictive maintenance algorithms. This demo will cover:

  • Processing data from sensors
  • Using physical modelling to generate failure data
  • Building machine learning algorithms to predict when components will fail
  • Deploying predictive maintenance algorithms into enterprise IT and embedded hardware

Technology Focus: Machine learning, signal processing, physical modelling

Big Data with MATLAB

The amount of data generated by companies is ever-increasing, and while this data represents an opportunity to gain greater insight and make more informed decisions, it also presents a number of challenges. How do you handle data sets that are too big to fit in memory, too big to process on a desktop computer? There is no one-size-fits-all approach.

Visit this showcase to discover the different tools that MATLAB provides to tackle these challenges and work to deliver insights from data sets of all sizes.
