Transformation poses new requirements on testing solutions
The need for CO₂ reduction, tougher legislative requirements and highly varying consumer demands create unprecedented challenges to vehicle manufacturers and their partners along the value chain. With many different types of propulsion systems, it is becoming even more difficult to meet the development targets of speed, quality, and costs. AVL with its experience in the automotive industry of more than 70 years helps you to find the ideal combination of tools, processes and methodologies that best supports your development work with maximum efficiency to quickly bring new models to the market.
The right testing infrastructure to master your challenges
We offer you the most advanced and accurate testing solutions for every step of the propulsion development process – from the first concept study all the way through to series production. Our great variety of application solutions connect different development environments and incorporate the latest methodology approaches. Depending on your application, our tools support the frontloading of development tasks, helping you to save time, increase quality and keep costs under control. We lay the foundation for efficient development operations in the new age of the connected vehicle.
From testing solutions for E-Mobility, Fuel Cell, Automated and Connected Mobility, and ICE / Hybrid propulsion systems to standalone measurement equipment and software to customer service solutions, we have the expertise to support the optimization of your testing and validation programs.
With the electrification of the powertrain developers face many new challenges. Electrification does not only increase the range of solutions, but also the number and type of design options. Therefore, a partner with both specific application know-how and a holistic perspective on the system is critical. We provide you with exactly this required expertise.
Fuel Cell Testing
Hydrogen as energy carrier and the corresponding fuel cell systems are a promising path to drive the long-term climate goals in various industries. The development of fuel cell systems is currently in the transition to robust industrialized solutions. This requires testing solutions enabling the seamless transition of development activities from virtual design & simulation to the physical testing of actual components as well as the scaling from one system design to a multitude of system variants. AVL’s modular test solutions contribute to accelerate the development process and allow for a future proof investment.
Automated and Connected Mobility Testing
The future of mobility will be highly automated. Most new vehicles already feature some sort of assistance systems and rapidly advance into more complex functionalities. But with such technological progress comes increased development effort, complexity, and time-to-market pressures. We offer a great variety of solutions for the calibration, verification, and validation of Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) and Autonomous Driving (AD) features to ensure robustness, reliability, performance quality, safety, and user acceptance.
ICE/Hybrid Propulsion Testing
Vehicle manufacturers and suppliers are facing global challenges and need to develop solutions to avoid further greenhouse gas emissions and improve local air quality. To meet these challenges, the industry must continue to optimize the performance of traditional combustion engines and invest in the hybridization of powertrains. We are highly committed to helping you develop zero-impact emission mobility solutions with a tailored offering that perfectly fits to your specific needs. Our holistic approach enables us to support you in the management of even the most complex testing tasks.
All Testing Products and Software
We provide you a comprehensive range of standalone testing products and software for every need. Our broad portfolio of testing devices comprises advanced measurement technologies, battery test and emulation products, electric dynamometers and drives, as well as emission analysis and measurement solutions. In addition, we can offer you a great variety of software from test system automation to connected development tools.
Customer Services for Testing Solutions
At AVL, we understand the importance of the availability and usability of test equipment throughout the entire product life cycle. We aim at reducing total cost of ownership, increasing technical availability, and securing measurement data quality of test equipment. In this way, AVL Customer Services help to avoid unplanned testing cost, reduce test repetitions, and achieve meaningful testing results.
