Testing facilities for automotive research and development

Our wide variety of competences covers conception, simulation and design up to the build-up of prototypes and testing. State-of-the art testing facilities, latest CAE tools, a pool of research vehicles and supporting infrastructure form the basis for our applied research and development activities. We continuously extend and update our equipment in order to perform standardised, but also unconventional testing. A big advantage is given by the close link between simulation and testing, allowing efficient generation of input data and validation of simulation results.

The following pages show our equipment in detail. Our equipment brochure summarises our infrastructure in a compact format. We will be glad to provide further information and answer your questions.
