Software Solutions

There is a growing worldwide requirement for developing low emission, high performance vehicles in a reduced and cost saving research and development time. Therefore, today's engineers require open and highly flexible tools that can help them achieve these requirements. 

The STARS platform with it's tools covers the complete development cycle, from the components to the complete vehicle, while increasing the testing process productivity and improving data collection and processing efficiency.

Our software products are a comprehensive set of tools to automate a wide range of test bed types for vehicle, engine, fuel cell, battery, powertrain, E-motor, brake, and component testing. Our different applications cover areas such as advanced R&D, emissions, durability or performance testing.

All STARS applications are built on the STARS platform. These provide an optimal blend of performance, robustness, flexibility and security. STARS applications can be delivered as standalone systems, or be networked via a cluster server.

  • Test Stand Workstations - for control and monitoring of the test cells, and data acquisition in a real-time environment
  • Office Workstations - for convenient off-line test configuration and post-test data analysis away from the test stand

STARS for Laboratory Management

Laboratory managers are responsible for increasing efficiency and productivity, as well as maintaining the integrity of the test data at the highest level. In order to achieve these goals, they need solutions which address the following day-to-day challenges:

Simple control and supervision of different automation systems from multiple vendors. Easy access to test reports from a central location. Offline test planning and scheduling that is not integrated within the test systems. Efficient handling of last-minute schedule changes caused by unavailability of equipment.

STARS for Facility and Asset Management

The automotive industry confronts lab managers in new, challenging ways. The current regulations demand increasingly complex test procedures that require more time and resources to execute, which counteracts the  goals to improve productivity and reduce costs.

Therefore, lab managers need to maximize the test cell availability by continual awareness of the current situation in their facility. They must ensure the equipment is fully functional, meets all mandatory quality standards and regulations, and is up to date with all service and maintenance requirements.
