Paper deals with embedded systems for mechatronics products. The problem of design of embedded systems can be solved via using of model based design. Hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulation is as device for designing of embedded systems. Simulation model of real product is running in hardware simulator and embedded systems can control the simulation model. This way enables try also dangerous situations.
