We use our deep customer relationships and product and technology leadership in automotive testing to create sustainable value for our stakeholders.
We are one of the world’s most trusted global suppliers of automotive test and verification products and solutions, playing a key role in ensuring the safe and responsible development of active safety and autonomous systems.
We develop and manufacture products and systems for use in track testing, laboratory testing and simulation. Track testing products and services are used in the test and evaluation of ADAS, autonomous vehicle technology and vehicle dynamics. Laboratory testing products and services test dynamic characteristics, simulate vehicle dynamics and evaluate the performance of active safety systems across conventional vehicles, motorsport and autonomy.
We sell directly to customers, predominantly through our UK operation but more recently through our own international sales offices in Germany, the USA and Japan. We also have indirect routes to market through an international network of distributors and representatives.
Product and technology leadership
Our innovative product development and
significant intellectual property ensure
cutting-edge products are available for
We work closely with our suppliers and take the steps necessary to ensure their performance meets our expectations.
Long-term relationships with all major
automotive OEM and test facilities enable us to provide support tailored to their needs and also assist in early identification of trends.
We have international routes to market, with direct sales and support offices in key territories to facilitate growth and support our customers. We use distribution and representatives in other locations to expand our reach.
Our highly skilled employees operate in niche capability areas. Our engineers and customer support teams work closely with our customers, supporting their requirements.
1. Track testing
Track testing products and services are used for the test and verification of ADAS, autonomous systems and vehicle dynamics. Vehicles and ADAS platforms, such as the GST and LaunchPad, are controlled using complex control software for accurate control and synchronisation of multiple test objects.
This enables our customers to conduct complex, multi-object test scenarios with a simple-to-use software interface to satisfy internal or external regulatory test requirements.
The Group also provides test services including the provision of ADAS and vehicle dynamics tests through a comprehensive test facility based in California, USA. Following the acquisition of Vadotech, the Group now also offers on-road testing services, with operations in China and Japan.
2. Laboratory testing and simulation
Laboratory testing and simulation includes products relating to simulation, noise and vibration and the assessment of kinematics and compliance in vehicles; and simulation software. These products are used to evaluate vehicle dynamics, noise, vibration and harshness and autonomy across a wide range of applications including conventional vehicles, motorsport and automated/autonomous vehicles.
Our simulator products along with our market-leading physics-based simulation software reduce new vehicle development timescales and costs by allowing meaningful testing earlier in the development process.
