Ideal verification of vehicles in compliance with today's and future challenge

Vehicle

The challenge is to meet the latest requirements for state-of-the-art and future-oriented R & D tasks such as tests on Hybrid and electric vehicles, as well as all requirements related to frontloading: from the road to the testbed and ultimately to the simulation. The development of modern vehicles with extremely complex powertrain concepts puts high requirements on a system which masters complexity and simplifies usability at the same time.

The development of modern vehicles with extremely complex powertrain concepts puts high requirements on new development and validation methods with the associated tools. In order to save costs and reduce development times, road tests are increasingly being transferred to vehicle testbeds and replaced by simulation. Transferability and a balance between the individual test environments (off-line simulation, hardware-in-the-loop, component testbed, vehicle testbed, road, etc.) must be guaranteed.
New vehicles must be tested and certified in relation to many different aspects before the operating license is issued. These aspects include, for example, driving noise, performance, consumption, emission and electromagnetic compatibility. AVL offers emission, fuel economy, greenhouse gas test, NVH and EMC solutions for vehicles on a chassis dynamometer, from small motorcycle and passenger cars up to light and heavy-duty trucks.
The increasing complexity of modern powertrains is placing increasing demands on System Integration in an early development stage. Development engineers need Test Systems to test powertrains and vehicles in a virtual environment without having vehicle tests. System Integration in the virtual environment has to consider typical functional aspects from road tests where system operation effects how driver interacts with vehicle (powertrain) effects how drive cycles activate, operate and stress...
The development of new drive concepts and powertrain functionalities entails new requirements for test systems. For this, AVL offers high-end solutions which fulfill the challenges.
Varying climatic situations affecting the vehicle are tested in a wind tunnel while simulating road load conditions on a chassis dynamometer.
This solution is designed to perform complete vehicle or component endurance tests in order to develop or confirm specified characteristics.
This solution is designed to verify a wide range of vehicles on their compliance with both current and future worldwide exhaust emission standards.
This solution is designed to perform complete vehicle or component development tests in order to develop or confirm specified characteristics.
The main purpose of NVH testing is the reduction, design and quality assurance of interior and exterior vehicle noise.
