Energy & emission testing, simplified


Our cutting-edge energy & emission test automation tool

The automotive industry is facing its biggest challenge in the history since its origin. An increasingly complex and tough global legislations paired with the rise of new electric propulsion systems are the new imperative. Global markets are demanding greater numbers and more sophisticated powertrain variants and propulsion systems. As a result, this means that testing efforts have grown dramatically.

Rising test volumes, driven by more and longer test cycles, demand that your testing infrastructure is optimized for maximum efficiency and productivity. Tackling this challenge requires the latest in cutting-edge test automation tools. The latest generation of AVL iGEM 2™ was designed with these challenges in mind.


iGEM 2 is our innovative test automation tool that is ideally suited for all your energy and emission testing needs. Emission testing on engine, powertrain, SORE and vehicle testbeds as well as the full range of electrification testing needs, such as Hybrid, Battery electric and Fuel Cell, are all covered with one tool. It delivers high-quality data for certification testing and easily adaptable solutions for research and development.

At the heart of iGEM 2 are a series of features that make it a must for your testing toolchain:

  • Pre-configured, AVL-certified legal cycles
  • Intelligent device controls independent of the device manufacturer
  • A modular library concept that allows easy customization
  • Deep integration of software modules supporting test procedure related measurements outside the testbed

You can adapt the library modules to create new applications, and our unique graphical test cycle editors let you create applications in a safe design environment without programming skills.

Using state-of-the-art algorithms, the system can automatically adjust result calculations and reports to suit global legislations as well as varying testbed configurations. Moreover, test cycles and device configurations ensure compliance across all markets. iGEM 2 lets you conduct optimized parallel device operation with no load times between tests and intelligent diagnostics. This allows you to undertake a greater number of valid tests during testbed operation, which is further supported by a guided configuration and data validation process.

Automated formula documentation provides full transparency for iGEM’s protected, version-controlled formulas. For full flexibility, users can always edit and create additional formulas. With a click they can revert to the protected original formula when needed. This combination of functionality and usability greatly enhances your ability to optimize your test capabilities while reducing effort and cost.



In addition to the testing of ICE and Hybrid vehicles, iGEM 2 offers extra versatility to perform legislation conform testing of fuel cell and battery electric vehicles (BEV).

H2 fuel consumption measurement is included with detailed reports and data available in any test phase for research and development purposes on Fuel Cell vehicles. Theoretical range calculation with the available H2 volume is covered, along with documentation for H2 bottle specifications.

Repeating test cycles with various end of test criteria are managed in a most efficient way to assure highest throughput and efficiency. Testbed users are guided by iGEM 2 throughout the entire testing process to assure valid data and error-free operation.



We have based iGEM 2 on the platform of AVL PUMA 2™ and AVL CONCERTO 5™. These provide test execution and data processing functionalities, along with a wide range of features for exceptional testing capabilities.

This comprehensive solution ensures that you are provided with everything you need to optimize your testing processes. Such as:

  • Traceability of all data and results
  • Test execution status control
  • Graphical workflow support
  • Extensibility, thanks to the iGEM 2 API
  • Minimal maintenance effort

With AVL iGEM 2 in your toolchain, you will be able to increase test quality, reduce mistakes, and optimize test cell throughput and management. All in an easy-to-use, user-friendly solution.
