Vehicle Dynamics Test Suite
In spite of the increasing adoption of virtual analysis tools in the vehicle development process, the amount of testing activity is all but decreasing, due to several reasons:
Detailed simulation models require reliable experimental data for validation.
The refinement of some vehicle attributes still need the “human touch”, delivered by subjective and objective test and development on physical prototypes.
The development and validation of advanced driving functions (ADAS, autonomous driving) still require extensive real-world testing.
In this context, in an extremely competitive global market, the testing process must be extremely efficient, considering:
The Overall Quality of the Measurement
Compliance and reproducibility of the test execution
Data accuracy: sensors and acquisition system
Preparation time: easy vehicle sensor setup and DAQ system configuration
Actual test time: optimize the use of the time spent on the test track or on a test rig
