MEDAS - Altitude Simulation

Multi-Function Efficient Dynamic Altitude Simulation

MEDAS is a multi-function altitude simulation that meets today’s and future market demands. It is highly dynamic, accurate and offers simulation options for Road-to-Rig including, test cell level verification for Real Driving Emissions (RDE) related topics along with global day-to-day correlation over different Research and Development (R&D) locations.

MEDAS can be utilized for engine intake, exhaust pressure along with temperature conditioning for engine and powertrain cells. MEDAS is also useful for chassis dynamometer applications covering steady state and dynamic engine operation conditions at various altitudes.
