Software and testing solutions for future mobility test centers

September 29-30, October 1, 2020

FEV is leading the way in software and testing solutions for new centers for future mobility.

With the move towards electric and autonomous vehicles, combined with the development of simulation and data management technologies, a revolution is taking place in test centers and test benches. FEV, with the daily use of its own test centers on all continents, is at the forefront of technology in this field. For example, it has recently launched eDLP, the world's largest high-voltage battery test center in Brehna, Germany. We invite you to discover this know-how and the resulting solutions during these three days.
