Experience the technologies of tomorrow today! IAV is offering you a unique peek behind the scenes of the automotive industry and a glimpse of the future of mobility. Be a part of the team and register to test driving thrills!

What is Ready2Test?

The complexity of automotive technology is steadily growing. What is the perfect combination of design, ergonomics, tactility and quality? How can mobility and communication be fused? What will the operating concept of the future look like? To help us answer these questions, we need to involve primarily car drivers and fans in the development process. That’s why IAV has launched Ready2Test.

Do I have to meet any particular criteria?

You don’t have to be an expert on cars. If you’re willing to try out something new and you’re keen to get your head around questions of technology, you’ve come to the right place in Ready2Test. Anybody 18 or older can join in whether or not they have a driving licence.

How does it work?

If test subjects are needed for a particular user test, IAV will send invitations by email to persons who fit the profile. If you are selected, you will have to be present at IAV for a few hours. You might be asked to take part in an online test, a classic questionnaire or even a test in a vehicle. The use of Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) is particularly exciting. For example, you can experience simulated driving situations or test a new heads-up display.

We will naturally pay you for your commitment by way of thank-you.

  • What is being tested?

    There are no limits to your imagination and the future of tomorrow’s mobility holds many exciting things. Our main focus is on the car and the user, the experience and smart assistants in the vehicle. This makes it all the more important for engineers to be able to obtain user feedback from precisely defined customer groups during development work – especially when it comes to topics relating to the usability and operability of new concepts and functions. This is why IAV has created its pool of test persons

  • What are these tests?

    Don’t worry, they’re not medical lab tests. Nevertheless, we put them through their paces, for example in a vehicle or in the IAV light hall. Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) are playing an increasingly important role, especially in the development of display and operating systems. Test persons can also experience simulated driving situations in a mockup car and, for example, test a new head-up display.

  • Friends / acquaintances are also interested, can I bring these?

    We are looking forward to every participant. Please tell your family, friends and acquaintances that they can register at https://probandenpool.iav.com/login and will then be selected for testing. Unfortunately bringing them along spontaneously does not work, because requirements for the tests might not be met.
