Are you looking to test your steering systems? Look no further!

Benefit from our services and the Steering-in-the-Loop Test Bench at our headquarters

We are always coming up with new ideas to make our clients’ development processes even more efficient. In the field of steering system testing, we now have a new solution available for you. Upon request, you can carry out your tests on our Steering-in-the-Loop Test Bench at our headquarters. You will only invest the time and cost that you actually require for testing and save the expense of purchasing your own test bench. At the same time you have the advantage of testing your steering system in the context of a virtual prototype.


Testing steering components and systems on our Steering-in-the-Loop Test Bench

One test bench, countless possibilities: If you need to develop and optimize your steering, you are welcome to do it at our headquarters. The Steering-in-the-Loop Test Bench offers you the possibility to test the following:

  • Influence of the variation of a steering system’s mechanical components
  • Comparison of different steering systems and virtual benchmarking
  • Analysis and comparison of software configurations of a steering system’s ECUs as well as of driver assistance and automated driving functions
  • Objective evaluation of the steering feel using a virtual prototype



Working towards the perfect steering: You conduct the test, we take care of the driving

There is no fixed project outline. Instead, we will work out a suitable approach together with you. This will only require your steering components or systems as well as a few days’ time on your part. Our experts from Engineering Services will be on hand throughout the entire project. You will be able to be on-site to monitor the progress, while an expert of IPG Automotive will drive the required scenarios on the Steering-in-the-Loop Test Bench and deliver the simulation results. If you are looking to perform a simulation with the Pfeffer steering model, you may send us the entire steering and we will take over the required tests to identify the model parameters.
