A study of automatic translation of MATLAB code to C code using software from the MathWorks
2009 (English)Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
Abstract [en]

An evaluation of code generation products from the MathWorks was made to see if they could benefit Autoliv Electronics. Autoliv Electronics wants to generate C code from the MATLAB language instead of having to do a manual translation which was both time-consuming and error-prone. The conclusion was that in some situations these products would contribute to the algorithm development process while in others they would not. One situation where automatic code generation did contribute to the development process was when generating reference floating-point C code. The generated reference code would serve as a functionality reference when writing the optimized C code for the hardware. However, the option of generating fixed-point C code from a fixed-point MATLAB implementation was not considered to contribute to the algorithm development process. A more extensive testing could reveal more situations where automatic MATLAB to C generation would be beneficial.
