Meeting the strict legal requirements for safe and clean mobility calls for complex and extensive development processes. By working with Bosch Engineering you not only gain access to cutting-edge testing technology for engines of every performance class, but also benefit from the full breadth of expertise in the Mobility Solutions business sector of Robert Bosch GmbH.
We work together with customers from around the world to comprehensively develop and optimize modern vehicle systems. Our high-performance test center puts a wide and comprehensive range of development services at your disposal, all tailored specifically to your requirements – from simple test runs to complex turnkey projects.
We offer a wide range of testing options for both electronic and non-electronic components, for example in the areas of hydraulics, e-mobility, and waste heat recovery.
Our engine test benches can be used to test not only gasoline or diesel engines but also alternative and electrified powertrains. Moreover, our quick engine-change system enables you to make optimum use of testing time.
Our exhaust-gas measurement technology meets all the requirements for efficient testing of exhaust-gas treatment systems – with both steady-state and transient measurements.
The Bosch Engineering test center enables you to perform comprehensive variant testing, regardless of performance class – for motorcycles, passenger cars, sports cars, and commercial vehicles.
Our high-performance test center offers you comprehensive testing options for vehicles in every performance class.
You can scale your chosen test configuration as needed for individual components, systems, or entire vehicles.
Our modern test bench technology optimizes testing times to achieve superior efficiency. Using the pallet system and standardized interfaces speeds up the process
of changing engines and exhaust systems. This means the engine is on the test bench only while it is being tested.
We will draw up test designs that meet your needs and all legal requirements, defining the testing process and determining the necessary measurements.
We will fit the necessary measurement and testing technology to the vehicle on your behalf, and we will arrange for the transfer to testing countries.
We offer comprehensive testing resources. You can make independent use of our workshop areas, third-party assembly shops, and various test benches.
Following testing, we will prepare the results for you, interpret them on request, and present them to you in the format of your choice.
When testing a specific component, you can either take the measurements yourself or let Bosch Engineering associates do it for you.
When testing several components, you can rely on our team’s expertise to take the measurements – or you can conduct the tests yourself.
We will gladly take on all project management duties, working closely with the calibration team on issues such as emission measurement and control or exhaust-gas treatment.
We will put our expertise and comprehensive range of services to work for you whenever and however you need throughout the complex development cycle.
We will support you from test design to results analysis – both as a consultant and by actually conducting the tests for you.
Bosch supports the introduction of Real Driving Emission (RDE) test procedures. At Bosch Engineering, we understand the requirements this places on vehicle development and can help you meet these requirements right from the start of the vehicle development process.
In the future, emissions testing for new vehicles will be carried out on the basis of the RDE test procedure, it will no longer be possible to consider emissions, exhaust gas treatment, transmission control, driving behavior, acoustics, and on-board diagnostics (OBD) in isolation. This increases the complexity of the vehicle development process. Right from the start, we assist you in implementing any new vehicle development requirements arising from RDE and provide support in optimizing efficiency when it comes to developing multiple vehicle variants.
Prepared for the future with new test methodology
To help you tackle the increasing complexity of vehicle development prompted by RDE test procedures, Bosch Engineering offers a comprehensive range of emissions testing services, including portable emission measuring systems (PEMS) and chassis dynamometers. We have also developed a new tool chain based around a vehicle- and environment simulation together with a real engine.
This enables us to analyze numerous factors such as traffic and driving behavior to see how they affect emissions and to check Real Driving Emissions of engines in combination with their chassis and transmission variants in a simulated environment. Engineers can use this innovative approach to analyze real driving emissions on a test bench at an early stage of the vehicle development process. RDE tracks, traffic situations, and driving behavior can also be flexibly adjusted in the tool chain to meet test requirements for different markets and applications. Our RDE frontloading approach reduces the time required for development and optimizes the development process. In addition, engine platform concepts in vehicle variants as well as new components can be analyzed under real driving conditions. Our target is to avoid hard- and software-changes close to the start of production. In addition, our tool chain facilitates the testing of GPS-based functions, exhaust gas treatment systems, and OBD. By taking advantage of our new development approach, we increase the maturity of the overall system before the first PEMS tests are carried out on the road with the individual vehicle and transmission variants. Testing to verify conformity with emissions limits will continue to be performed both on chassis dynamometers and in real driving conditions on the road.
The highly dynamic engine test benches are ideally equipped for stationary and transient tests, thanks to a full-flow dilution tunnel and a constant-volume sampling (CVS) system. As a result, they meet the requirements for certifiable measurement accuracy, permitting the flexible performance of both manual and fully automated test programs.
Our quick engine-change system guarantees smooth engine assembly and changes without affecting the continuity and comparability of measurements. Engines can be quickly connected to the test bench thanks to standardized interfaces that reduce the effort required for an engine change to a minimum. This maximizes your testing time, since engine changes can be prepared separately. Meanwhile, the option of forced engine cooling permits optimum coordination of measuring times and analysis times.
Various dynamometers are available for performing comprehensive testing and measurements on different types of vehicles and vehicle systems. The exhaust-gas chassis dynamometer carries out exhaust emission tests and verifications of limiting values in accordance with global standards. This high-performance dynamometer can perform functional and performance testing at speeds of up to 310 kph.
Temperatures can be set anywhere between -35°C and +35°C on the climate test bench. The bench also features cooling sectors to pre-temper vehicles. This ensures the efficiency of emissions tests, measurements of cold-start compensation and warm-start adjustments, and component temperature measurements.
Our hydraulic test benches are ideal for flexibly operating and measuring either individual injection components or entire common-rail injection systems. It can generate operating pressures of over 3,000 bar. In addition, our test center offers hardware-in-the-loop (HiL) test benches for SCR systems in all applications. It is also possible to conduct tests of hydrocarbon injection (HCI) systems to support particle filter regeneration.
Our test bench can be used to benchmark or validate individual components or whole systems of the exhaust tract. It is also designed for waste-heat recovery applications. We work with all standard, also flammable fluids.
Both our assembly shop and our workshop are designed for all vehicle classes and offer space for ideal testing preparation. Our qualified associates perform assembly and maintenance tasks as well as fitting, removing, and rebuilding work.
We offer ideal storage for your prototypes in our secure third-party area with its own entrance and controlled access. The area can also be used independently of our workshop teams, so your specialists can perform their own work.
