Test and Validation
Vehicle and Powertrain Test Development in Germany
The significance of developing in Europe, where automotive technological trends were born, is increasing year by year. In terms of vehicle performance, there are many demands such as high speed tests between cities, tests in various environments such as extremely low temperature and high altitude, and post-Euro6, RDE application to reduce environmental load.
On the other hand, in an environment where resource concentration and selection are required, such as various electrification, ADAS/AD, V2X, IOT, shift from goods to things, outsourcing to powerful organizations has become a trend in Japan as well. In addition, Segula Technologies Germany (former Opel R&D Center) will support the challenges that the Japanese automobile industry faces, such as diversifying engineering power and reducing new capital investment.
In 2019, Segula Group acquired the former Opel R&D center platform and powertrain-related development and testing organizations including 700 platform and powertrain engineers.
