Porsche Engineering demonstrates driverless durability testing at 130kph using AB Dynamics driving robots

The Porsche Engineering team at Nardò Technical Centre has been using our driving robots to develop new ways of testing autonomous driving functions as well as performing some impressively high-speed all-night durability testing.

The team has written in Porsche Engineer’s in-house magazine (see link below) about how it used our driving robots to perform durability testing at up to 130km/h, covering 600 kilometres in a single night – all of these tests were conducted with no human driver behind the wheel..

“These driverless tests are ground-breaking,” says Davide Palermo, manager of the ADAS Centre of Competence at the NTC. “We have made great leap forward – in terms of the complexity of test automation, vehicle set-up, parameter tuning, and intense activity on the track.”
