Test System Automation

Flexible Test Automation Solutions for Virtual and Real-World Environments

Test System Automation

Climate protection and global concern about the environment are the main drivers of development in the automotive industry. The dynamic rate of change in emissions legislation and changing consumer preferences mean that the need to increase efficiency and develop new powertrain concepts is crucial.

AVL´s software ecosystem helps the rapidly changing requirements of today’s and future mobility to be mastered efficiently.

The electrification and hybridization of powertrains are ongoing efforts to meet increasingly strict global CO2 legislation. State-of-the-art test environments must be able to handle complex tasks, enabling virtual development and test execution on the testbed. Innovation, reliability, and flexibility are key success factors.

Machine Learning and test environments

AVL PUMA 2™ represents the brains behind many different testbed applications. Our leading automation system is easily extendable to suit modern testing methods and ensures consistent and transparent testbed configuration. Our testbed monitoring and control system, AVL EMCON 6™, is completely integrated in our automation system and provides sustainable quality for your entire test field. At AVL, we offer tailored solutions for different testing environments and are continuously extending our software functionality to cover powertrain concepts such as fuel cell systems, e-motors, inverters and battery test environments, thus enabling our customers to easily adapt to present and future demands.

Data is becoming the “fuel” of the fourth industrial revolution. Without traceability, data quickly becomes useless. It is an asset which has to be accessible at anytime, anywhere, and in safe manner. AVL PUMA 2™ Share enables you to share data throughout your entire test field and centrally manages the parameters and data generated by the AVL automation system – independently of the application. Our fully integrated web-based application AVL PUMA 2™ Live displays live data from all PUMA 2 testbeds running in a PUMA 2 Share test field in a single user interface.

AVL PUMA 2™ Live

The automotive industry today faces many challenges that include optimizing development costs and shortening time-to-market. In this environment, it has become more important than ever to successfully execute project plans, maximize testbed utilisation and avoid useless testing. With AVL PUMA 2™ Machine Learning, we enable users to take full advantage of machine learning algorithms during their development process, saving time and costs by quickly detecting failures during online operation in PUMA 2.

The functionality and flexibility of the PUMA 2 automation system that provides support for all types of UUTs enables us to react quickly to changing market demands.
Its deep integration in the AVL ecosystem allows us to do this very efficiently.
