On a project base, we calibrate the target drive force and other new functions of the vehicle in various driving conditions while ensuring the best F/C, N/V and driveability. Our team operates with full responsibility for ensuring the performance and quality of the whole THS calibration. We provide the calibrated THS software and proof of software quality by issuing design review reports and tolerance investigations.

On a vehicle planning base, we provide objective criteria that grasp the driveability requirements of EU customers considering human-vehicle interactions in specific EU driving conditions.  The objective criteria are validated by gathering a representative amount of evaluation data. The criteria is carried-over for next projects for which logic structures and calibrations are being developed and calibrated.
Furthermore, we create and use various simulation tools and perform various vehicle tests (vehicle roller test cell, test track driving, real road driving, etc…) as well as software tools for data processing, visualization, analysis and automated optimisation.
