The ease of automation

AVL PUMA 2™ is the global industry standard for testbed automation. It is suitable for electrified testbed types as well as for conventional test environments.


Our leading automation system is easily extendable to suit modern testing methods and ensures consistent and transparent testbed configuration. 
PUMA 2 provides an easy way to configure testbed parameters while offering the unique opportunity of immediate validation. When used in the office, PUMA 2 enables a considerable part of the testbed configuration work to be frontloaded. This reduces testbed downtime and maximizes the output and efficiency of complex calibration tasks.

The electrification and hybridization of powertrains – along with the optimization of combustion engines – form the core of ongoing work to meet increasingly strict global CO2 legislation.  

A state-of-the-art test environment must be able to handle complex tasks, enable virtual development, and execute tests on a testbed.

At the core of our software solution is a cutting-edge user interface that offers supreme usability and adaptability. Furthermore, PUMA 2 is a powerful, reliable, and scalable system. We are continuously extending its functionality to cover test environments for new powertrain concepts such as fuel cell systems, e-motors and inverters,  and for battery testing applications. This range of functionality, enables our customers to easily adapt their test environments to present and future demands.
