From the roadto the powertrain

Powertrain and transmission test bed

From the road to the powertrain

For the last 15 years, the drive system has seen profound changes, especially with the development of electronic driving aids. Using chassis dynamometers for on-road testing is very time-consuming and requires the presence of the entire vehicle – the powertrain test bed is a good solution for testing the powertrain in its entirety. The advent of hybrid powertrains makes this type of test bed even more necessary.

Building on its experience providing and controlling systems, FEV offers proven powertrain test bed solutions.
