Products & Services

On-Board-Diagnostics (OBD) have been required in the US since 1990 to monitor the emission relevant systems in order to detect malfunctions, which increase the emissions, and indicating the malfunctions to the driver. This regulation was also implemented in Europe in 2000. Besides the legal requirements there are also manufacturer related requirements to the OBD system such as monitoring the system to avoid engine damage or support for engine service, troubleshooting and repair. Meanwhile...
The powertrain performance and emission development business is driven by increasingly restricted emission and fuel consumption requirements as well as increased performance demands.

AVL Tech Centers worldwide

Global partner for global OEMs.

AVL is the global partner for developing and testing innovative powertrain solutions - from conventional to pure electric vehicles. For developing and testing existing and new powertrain technologies in the Test Factory - in close cooperation with the customers.
AVL‘s frontloading for manufacturing provides immediate reaction on the cost, quality and manufacturability of AVL engineered products.
The calibration business is driven by an increasing number of derivatives under the challenge of restricted emission and fuel consumption requirements and with the need to achieve the highest quality and time efficiency.


Calibration of 2-Wheeler

Meeting stringent forthcomining requirements and standards

Compact engines for handheld tools and recreational powercrafts, as well as most motorcycles in Asia of today to a very wide extent still are operated with purely mechanically carburetors. Due to tightening emission standards the electronically controlled systems including exhaust aftertreatment systems are consequently edging out these traditional fields of carburetor applications. To deal with the performance requirements of compact engines and 2-wheeler and meeting stringent emission...
By the unique cooperation of the three branches Powertrain Engineering, Advanced Simulation Technologies and Instrumentation &Test Systems, most efficient and cost – oriented development processes, methodologies and tools are developed and implemented. Thus AVL manages the interfaces between R&D, series development and production in the most effective way . Using the holistic engineering competence of AVL Powertrain Engineering as well as the systematic process management and the...
