AVL Testbed Control & Simulation

Modular and scalable controller with integrated simulation platform that ideally covers all requirements from individual testbeds up to applications in large-scale test facilities.

AVL Solution

Decades of experience in the field of testbed control have significantly influenced the development of the AVL testbed controllers. Vehicle simulation enables significant progress in vehicle optimization and calibration. For powertrain testbeds AVL introduces a patented solution for the vehicle dynamics with wheel slip simulation.

Your Benefits

  • Reproducible and accurate results due to approved and optimized control algorithms
  • High level of user-friendliness in the manual operation
  • Approved safety concept for unmanned operation, 7 days a week, 24 hours a day
  • Central administration of the parameterization in test facilities
  • Open simulation platform for the integration of customer real-time models

Dynamometer Control Unit BME 400

Hardware and software for the control and manual operation of an eddy current dynamometer, an AC machine or a hydraulic dynamometer and for the control of a combustion engine.


Hardware and software for the control, manual and automatic operation of the combustion engine and dynamometer on an engine test bed.


Open simulation environment for the integration of customer models for real-time applications into AVL PUMA Open.


All manner of applications have been successfully equipped with EMCON: from simple testbeds for continuous operation, development testbeds with vehicle simulation, powertrain testbeds and components testbeds, all the way to racing testbeds. Globally, several large-scale test facilities with more than 30 testbeds each profit from the complete integration into the testbed automation system.


AVL ISAC offers a scalable simulation solution from road load, vehicle inertia, powertrain oscillations, to wheel slip. The flexibility and the open character of the system are provided by the customer specific adaptation and by the direct integration of MATLAB®/Simulink® control algorithms that can be created by the user. In this regard the EMCOM real-time platform offers the ideal basis with the extension AVL ARTE.Lab™.

Installed Base
