Aurora Living Lab is modern cost-effective mode of co-operation for testing and validating newest developments for autonomous driving and vehicle behavior in cold circumstances where you can make test safely in protected environment without risks of public roads and publicity.
Find the unexpected before your customer finds it!
Winter and cold testing is an essential part of modern vehicle testing. Exhaust cleaning, electrical systems and even components in chassis and suspension behave differently depending on starting temperature or during warm-up phase. Unexpected behavior of catalyst and AdBlue-systems can be found fastest during cold tests in proving ground.
Testing all systems related to connected and automated vehicles must be done in conditions where your system will be covered up with ice and/or snow or electronics are stored and used in unexpected cold conditions
EV-Charging gives new and different results when charging in cold or charging cold battery with a cold charger. Find unexpected weather and behavior conditions which occur only in cold before they end up to series production.
