Vehicles must comply to national and international standards. Verification is complex, time-consuming, and expensive. At HBK, we are well aware of the test and measurement challenges throughout the product life cycle in this highly competitive market. Our first-time-right approach enables engineers to save time and money and launch their products as soon as possible. A dedicated testing solution for electric and hybrid drives helps them optimise efficiency and gain a competitive edge.

Our powerful simulation and data analysis tools provide deep insights into the vehicle’s structural behaviour to validate the design or make changes early in the process. Measuring noise and vibration and taking action to reach target levels is an essential part of physical vehicle testing. In the field, rugged mobile data acquisition devices provide accurate and reliable results. Learn more about our comprehensive test and measurement toolbox for cars, vans, and trucks.

Key Areas of Application

professional driving simulator from VI-GRADE, from HBK’s Virtual Test Division

Simulation mimics a vehicle’s behaviour in the real world and under different load scenarios. Virtual tests run on digital twins enable users to evaluate each component which might be impossible with a physical prototype. And to gain a deeper understanding of how these components interoperate on sub-system and system level to make predictions about durability and efficiency. The aim is, of course, to validate or change the design at an early stage of development. Lowering the risk of failure saves time and money otherwise spent on physical testing.

Much of vehicle development is being frontloaded to simulation. Yet real-world data are needed to validate and verify simulation models and optimise them. Only tests conducted on test benches/dynamometers and in the field provide real conditions of use. Results help engineers to better understand the final product and how all the subsystems work together. They can evaluate structural durability as well as noise and vibration characteristics to ensure the vehicle will meet the targets and satisfy customer expectations.
