Electrified powertrains to accelerate vehicle development
AB Dynamics has launched a new axle level NVH rig, the ANVH 250, following demand from vehicle manufacturers to ascertain NVH issues earlier in the design process and over a greater operating range. Electrified powertrains have significantly reduced the acceptable level of NVH for vehicle manufacturers.
Setting framework for autonomous vehicle testing and standards
AB Dynamics is contributing key technologies to the German PEGASUS project, a €34m national initiative to establish industry-wide quality standards and test procedures for automated vehicle functions. AB Dynamics was identified as one of the few companies with the technology to control multiple vehicles accurately and repeatably enough to ensure consistent and actionable test results.
Chinese automotive ADAS development capability expanded
The Chinese Automotive Technology and Research Centre (CATARC) has significantly expanded its vehicle development capabilities by acquiring a new, third-generation driving simulator from AB Dynamics. The Advanced Vehicle Driving Simulator (aVDS) provides the organisation with essential driver-in-the-loop testing capabilities, for developing vehicle dynamics, ride handling, ergonomics, driver behaviour, powertrain refinement and more.
Simulator to investigate autonomous driving technologies
Hochschule Kempten’s ‘Adrive Living Lab’ in Germany will be adopting an advanced Vehicle Driving Simulator (aVDS) from automotive test system supplier, AB Dynamics. The new simulator will enable the university to conduct thorough research into driver interaction with Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and Automated Driving (AD) systems.
