Engine Algorithm Calibration

Calibrating powertrain management, we optimize vehicle performance and drivability

We calibrate all powertrain functions of relevance at production level: emissions, fuel consumption, power development, noise, cold and warm starting as well as on-board diagnostics. Our calibration makes sure that every potential is exploited in terms of emissions, power output, consumption, acoustics, drivability and robustness.

Our aim is to reduce the work involved in calibration by using efficient calibration methods and intelligent tools – while at the same time meeting all calibration requirements. This is why we use available simulation models as a means of providing optimum support in calibration.

Worldwide, we have over 800 experienced members of staff specialized in calibrating powertrain management. Senior project managers holding PMP certification head the teams and train the rising generation of calibration engineers. Several thousand successful production starts at international OEMs in Europe, USA and Asia are testimony to the quality of IAV calibration.
