When people buy a car, they expect to get a carefully tuned driving experience that corresponds to their chosen brand. However, the number of test vehicles is limited and they are only available late in the development process. Thus, calibration engineers often have to tune the driving behavior of numerous vehicle variants and models under intense time pressure. Currently, they rely on their expertise and get instincts to carry out this tuning process. Etas, in collaboration with IAV, has developed a measurement and evaluation system based on Inca-Flow that allows engineers to tune even large numbers of vehicles efficiently.

Objective Descriptions of Calibration Criteria

It is certainly a daunting challenge: Carmakers are increasingly calling for a system that would simplify vehicle tuning in the calibration process while simultaneously enabling them to efficiently define the character of the vehicle itself. What is more, they want to create objective descriptions of calibration...
