Ensure automotive VALIDATION AND Compliance 

Automotive testing puts full vehicles, components and systems through a series of laboratory, virtual and 'real world' assessments to ensure it is safe, reliable and compliant with safety regulations. Automotive testing is a requirement for accessing global automotive markets and manufacturers must show they have put their product through rigorous assessment.

Testing covers a wide range of vehicle features, from individual components analysis and emissions testing, to buzz, squeak and rattle tests, crash simulations and extensive automotive electronics testing. Watch the video to see how automotive testing is conducted - from small components like electronics to full vehicles - to ensure the highest level of vehicle safety and quality.

Automotive testing offers a wealth of benefits

  • Regulatory compliance: global market access requires automotive component testing and compliance according to relevant global regulations to ensure overall safety
  • Early discovery of faults: automotive component testing helps to discover faults in the development phase, which avoids expensive product recalls and saves you money
  • Enhance safe technology development: developing new automated mobility technologies makes it important to ensure safety from the early stage of development to become reality
  • Ensure product safety: testing solutions for various kind of vehicle components and systems put the product through rigorous assessment to ensure maximum safety for customers
  • Boost brand reputation: testing your product can iron out faults and enhance your reputation as a provider of quality vehicles
