The Automotive Engineering Science (AES) laboratory
The renovated AES lab facility was opened in September 2003. Since then, with the help of TU/e, Paccar and other parties, we have been able to renew and extend many automotive testing facilities. These facilities include an up-to-date controlled drum facility and various tyre test facilities. Also a number of test vehicles have been acquired for various purposes, including a fully converted electric VW Lupo EL, with as ‘donor vehicle’ a VW Lupo 3L, as well as a fully instrumented cooperative driving DAF truck. A powertrain test rig is used by the CST group for testing new algorithms for CVT control.
