Increasing complexity, cost pressure, introduction of new technologies to achieve a quieter, electric powered, lower emission, autonomous drive, the list goes on! The vehicle is changing in an unprecedented pace, the regulatory requirements further add to this incredible momentum of change. These are the demands we face today and these are the challenges that all calibrators must manage in order to deliver vehicles that achieve exactly the driving performance defined for the road experience.
So here AVL is your partner to help you take advantage of the latest tools and methodologies, support you to be faster, manage confidently the scope of variants and deliver the results with confidence.

Modern powertrain development creates significant challenges for the automotive industry. Essential vehicle attributes - performance, dynamics, fuel consumption, emissions and acoustics - depend on an optimized tuning of the control units. On the one hand, those calibration tasks are becoming more complex but on the other hand, optimal results in a shorter amount of time are demanded. To cover the wide range of tasks in their daily work, calibration engineers need efficient tools to put new methods into practice.
The calibration business is driven by an increasing number of derivatives under the challenge of restricted emission and CO2 requirements and with the fast-growing demand for autonomous and automated driving features. As an independent partner, AVL offers a complete range of services for SOP series calibration of passenger cars, commercial vehicles and off-road applications worldwide for all markets. This covers the whole range from calibration of combustion engines, transmissions, hybrid and electric powertrains up to the complete vehicle. AVL’s calibration process is used in combination with highly efficient tools and handled by an experienced calibration staff in order to achieve the highest quality and time efficiency.
AVL offers the by far largest and most competent engineering & testing network worldwide which differentiates AVL clearly from the competitors. The AVL group covers the whole spectrum of powertrain engineering, calibration and testing facilities with 70 years of knowhow to support development, calibration and testing projects. AVL serves customers worldwide with over 260 testbeds and outstanding expertise for powertrain engineering and calibration – from conventional to pure electric vehicles.
Global teams with local engineers enrooted in their markets execute projects entirely inter-linked on the basis of standardized processes, tools and methodologies worldwide. AVL Engineering and Tech - Centers work as a network and a team. AVL people share a sense of responsibility for providing optimum results in time, in cost and in quality.
Methodologies and Processes
New methodologies have to be implemented that support the following key aspects:
- Building bridges between the different development stages
- Tools that offer calibration engineers the highest possible flexibility
- Processes taking into account all available calibration environments
- Extension of testing facilities due to transfer from Road to Lab to Math (RLM)
