Vehicle Dynamics + Steering

Coordinated methods for a consistent development process

Vehicle dynamics and steering feel in the age of automated driving

Our solutions ensure the finest steering feel, which is in perfect harmony with the overall vehicle dynamics and conveys a feeling of safety and ease. Our goal is to create a unique, brand-typical driving experience in the age of automated and autonomous driving. Our methods and products are perfectly coordinated. This ensures a consistent development process. Whether in the MIL/SIL simulation, on the HIL system test bench, on the driving simulator or in road tests: as a customer, you always receive comparable evaluations at the earliest possible stage.

Evaluation criteria in the tiered model

We have established a tiered model of linked evaluation criteria. They include both subjective customer and expert evaluations as well as objective performance indicators (KPIs). Thanks to a high degree of automation and simple operation, you can make the right decision at the right time in all phases. Our continuous development of methods allows you to concentrate on the essentials: the development of inspiring vehicles. With progress as our constant driving force, we strive for greater effectiveness and efficiency.

Intensive driver-vehicle connection for an authentic driving experience

In the age of automated driving, we strive for an intensive connection between vehicle and driver. This is our motivation and our goal for authentic driving pleasure. This helps to optimize the individual driving experience. Especially when control is shared between driver and vehicle, a higher degree of integration leads to perfect harmony.

Our solutions for driving and the mobility of the future are based on more than two decades of experience in the development and testing of vehicle dynamics, including practical driving tests, test bench tests and computer-aided simulations.

Subjectively experienced, objectively implemented

Our aim is to translate the subjective experiences of drivers and passengers into objective key performance indicators (KPIs) and to further develop test methods for handling and comfort. This makes it possible to define brand and model-specific characteristics, i.e. the DNA, and validate the objectives at all times in all phases of development: from simulation to the driving simulator and test bench trials through to road tests. To help our customers make the right decisions early in the development process, we also strive to transfer subjective evaluation to simulation.

Consistent and usable early on

Uniquely combined and aligned, our methods and products ensure development consistency and deliver results you can use early on.
