Ideal verification of vehicles in compliance with today's and future challenge


The challenge is to meet the latest requirements for state-of-the-art and future-oriented R & D tasks such as tests on Hybrid and electric vehicles, as well as all requirements related to frontloading: from the road to the testbed and ultimately to the simulation. The development of modern vehicles with extremely complex powertrain concepts puts high requirements on a system which masters complexity and simplifies usability at the same time.

AVL Approach

The vehicle testbed provides a realistic image of the road under reproducible environmental conditions. Vehicles with any kind of powertrain system can be tested, which means that with further diversification of these systems, the applications of the  vehicle testbed are expanded and require a central development system that also integrates all vehicle  components. Vehicle characteristics like vehicle mass, speed, power, tractive force or axle load are mapped in AVL vehicle testbed products. AVL offers more than 18 standard vehicle testbed configurations with various options and variations, covering  a wide range of customer specific solutions for all market segments.

Benefits at a Glance

  • Proven solutions (overall more than 800 vehicle testbeds in operation) for development and certification of all type of vehicles
  • Shorter development times due to high levels of reproducibility of vehicle tests and well integrated devices in test cell via AVL's software capabilities
  • Real consumption and emission analyses on customer-specific roads (e.g. Auto Motor and Sport track)
  • Professional project management on site via local contact person
