HORIBA Drives Change To Mobility With Electrification Offering

HORIBA Automotive announced its electrification offering to the industry
which includes solutions for the different stages of vehicle development and
evaluation, including material characterisation, component, system and full
vehicle testing. Solutions are available for the full range of vehicle
types, from light- to heavy-duty vehicles and off-highway equipment. With
the addition of electrified vehicle testing solutions, HORIBA has extended
its existing global market-leadership in emissions to now include
electrification for the rapidly transitioning vehicle industry.

HORIBA’s electrification offering serves all relevant stages of research,
development, validation, certification and end-of-line verification covering
material characterisation, component, system and vehicle for all varieties
of e-powertrains including those with batteries, fuel cells and hybrid
architectures. The total solution ranges from single component testing to
turnkey testing solutions and includes consulting and other services
throughout the total vehicle development process.

“As the vehicle industry continues to transition, we have developed
applications that allow our customers to build a solution that meets their
vehicle development strategy,” said Dr. Axel Waldhelm, Global Business
Manager Electrification and Global Applications. “We understand the
regulatory and consumer requirements for cleaner and reliable transportation
and are partnering with our customers to meet R&D challenges of future
mobility. Having built a global reputation as a leader in the provision of
solutions for conventional powertrain development and certification, our
attention has moved to e-powertrain where we intend to repeat our success”.

Unique in its approach, HORIBA is able to integrate scientific expertise
from a range of industries to offer a solution based on customer needs.
These solutions range across the different stages of the vehicle development
and evaluation process:

. Material characterisation: analysis of batteries and fuel cells on a
material level, e.g. degradation, abrasion, chemical reactions

. Component: testing and characterisation of e-motors and transmissions,
testing of batteries and fuel cells, with solutions for testing batteries
from cell to module to pack and fuel cells from cell to stack

. System: testing the electrified powertrains of various vehicle
architectures including battery-electric, fuel cell-electric and
hybrid-electric vehicles

. Complete vehicle: testing the complete vehicle in the laboratory or on the

The complete solution for electrified vehicles includes a diverse mix of
highly precise analytical equipment, chassis and powertrain testing
dynamometers, electrification-specific solutions from HORIBA FuelCon and
consultancy and validation capability from HORIBA MIRA.

Offering this full range of solutions and expertise for electrified mobility
allows HORIBA to collaborate with customers to integrate their vehicle
development process with required testing protocol and develop a customized
solution for their needs.
