Trials

We love what we do.

We have specialised in every aspect of service related to road testing, testing vehicle components and lubricants, quality management for components and vehicle retrofits. In our search for solutions, we are flexible, innovative, creative and conscientious. So that even today, you know if your product meets the requirements of tomorrow.
Our range of services covers every process stage of a successful road test, regardless of whether the test is for a car or a lorry. Our services are available module by module and as a complete package. For our complete service package, we handle every aspect of the test.

 

Vehicle testing

Our range of services covers every process stage of a successful road test, regardless of whether the test is for a car or a lorry. Our services are available module by module and as a complete package. For our complete service package, we handle every aspect of the test.

Sourcing

We find the vehicles you want and transport them to where you need.

Conversion

We outfit and refit the vehicles to meet your specifications in our in-house workshop. We handle all of the work and services during the test.

Test drives

We test all of your vehicle components – from lubricants and operating fluids to engines, navigation devices and electronic components to all of the interior elements and tyres. The spectrum of services we provide for road tests ranges from short distance testing to endurance trials and can take place anywhere from public roads or proving grounds to racetracks or roller test benches. We can carry out the test drives in Germany or anywhere around the world.

Documentation

Our tests are designed specifically to meet your specifications, documented from start to finish and carried out to fulfil all of the requirements needed to meet your goals.

Evaluation

We remove individual parts relevant to testing from the vehicles in our in-house workshop. The tested components are evaluated, examined by professionals and certified to applicable standards.

Total vehicle assessment

In addition to driving according to an agreed driving profile over a defined mileage, we also carry out typical operations by hand. We critically examine the vehicles at all times, documenting every noteworthy aspect from start to finish. At the end of the test, we provide a complete vehicle teardown and the vehicle is evaluated and examined by professionals as part of a Q-Audit.

Our Services include:

  • Total vehicle evaluation tests (quality)
  • Durability tests (R&D)
  • Propulsion tests (e.g. fuel economy test, alternative fuel (e.g. M15, E85), NGV (CNG or LNG))
  • High voltage tests incl. training (e.g. hybrid, electric vehicles, fuel cell)
  • Driving on demand – rig to road (time & speed based vs. road type based)
  • ADAS projects (ACC distance control, lane-keeping assistant, pre-crash, etc.)
  • Infotainment, connected car and multimedia testing
  • PEMS application drive (AVL M.O.V.E Gas PEMS iS)
  • Benchmark of components and systems
  • Reverse engineering

Oil, lubrication and fuel testing

Good lubrication is the key to good driving. In this day and age, testing oils and lubricants means more than just demonstrating that their wear and corrosion-related properties are on the level. Using state-of-the-art oils and lubricants can even decrease fuel consumption. How do we know? We test it!

Oil testing

How does oil perform while in use? We run vehicles according to the manufacturers’ specifications and regularly take oil samples. Lab tests show whether the oil has met specified properties. At the end of a test, we dismantle the engines, gearboxes and/or axles. This shows us whether the oil was able to meet requirements in specific cases.

Fuel testing

Companies that develop fuels want to have them tested in real-world use on the road. For this purpose, we have set up our own refueling station on our grounds. This way, you can be sure that only the fuel being tested is used during the trials.

Our Services include:

  • Oil testing
  • Fuel testing
  • Coolant testing
  • Finding matching test partners (regarding brand, model, mileage, severity factor)
  • Monitoring of complete test
  • Labelling of trucks
  • Sampling / flushing (e.g. fuel, oil, coolant)
  • Parts and vehicle recovery from the field
  • Teardown, split of engine, EOT rating
