Compared to the current test environments, which are designed and optimized for perfect reproducibility and a removal of external influences, driving a vehicle on the road under “real-life” conditions will never be 100% reproducible. The influence of the road profile, the ambient conditions, the traffic situation as well as the behavior of the driver will significantly influence the results. One-to-one comparison of test results will not be possible; instead it is nessecary to handle and evaluate the test data using statistical methods. The RDE legislation will require the engines to be clean under all operating conditions. This will impose significant challenges on the design and calibration of engines. Here RDE can become a door opener for alternative technologies as well as for alternative development processes. AVL OFFERS SIMULATION AND TESTING TOOLS FROM INSPIRATION TO OPEN ROAD RDE is imposing new challenges and complexity on today’s approach for the development of vehicles and engines. There is certainly no magic bullet to battle the increasing complexity, but AVL’s complete solution portfolio makes a difference. AVL can support any development project for RDE at all levels: INSTRUMENTS AND DEVICES Leading the market in various fields, AVL is committed to providing best in class performance, certified compliance with legislations as well as easy integration in test systems. TEST SYSTEMS AVL covers the full range of test environments, from first ideas in the office to the open road. Consistent operation across all test environments is ensured. AVL M.O.V.E iS is a tailored testing solution for the RDE on-road application. PROCESS SUPPORT AVL software supports the test operation, calibration, model based development and data management through the entire development process.
