Driver assistance, powertrain and vehicle dynamics: the right solution for your application scenarios

Do you develop applications in the areas of vehicle dynamics, driver assistance or powertrain? You can use our test methods to meet the increased development requirements of the automotive industry in your individual application scenarios. Our methods are based on the automotive systems engineering approach: testing systems in their entirety within whole vehicles in realistic test scenarios. We put this into practice using virtual test driving – in our three main fields of application. We are also a reliable partner for more specialized application scenarios in the areas of virtual reality and driving simulators as well as off-highway.

At a very early stage – right from the time the company was founded – we made a strategic decision that laid the groundwork for our range of services in the area of virtual test driving: Our initial focus was to be on vehicle dynamics applications. With our roots in vehicle dynamics and our high-precision vehicle dynamics models, we have had a firm foundation for many years for managing all the challenges in the areas of driver assistance and powertrain as well. Our extensive expertise and know-how have put us in the best possible position for the future – particularly for addressing the megatrends of autonomous driving and green mobility.

Our wide-ranging product portfolio for virtual test driving reflects our automotive systems engineering approach. The right solution for practically all application scenarios is ready at hand. In the rare event that this is not the case, we will work closely with you to develop individual solutions which are tailored entirely to your specific requirements. We are constantly developing our expertise in a targeted manner – including in the context of funded projects. This not only allows us to experience future technologies firsthand, but also means that we are playing our part in driving research forward. Our close collaboration with our clients and partners represents one of our fundamental values: openness to what’s new. We are confident that we are on the right track to always being able to offer our clients the optimal solution.

The right choice for every type of test

Developing and releasing a system requires a variety of tests. We differentiate between three types of tests: fail-safe tests, functionality tests and performance tests. Regardless of which test you are performing, our simulation solutions offer you the preferred resource for an optimal development process.

Fail-safe tests

Fail-safe tests are important for checking the control unit – how does it behave in a fail-safe situation? For example, what happens if signals are absent or offset? Fail-safe tests assess the fallback level, the fault memory and the driver information in the case of a malfunction.

Functionality tests

A functionality test checks whether a system function is triggered, and if so, whether it is triggered at the correct moment. This involves testing whether the function is initiated when the system correctly recognizes a situation, and whether the function completely fulfils its objectives.

Performance tests

Finally, in order to be able to estimate the quality of a function, its performance must be tested. How does a function behave in certain – including complex – maneuvers and borderline situations? What results are achieved?
