Advanced Durability Testing

As the technology integrated into mobility platforms expands so does the need for those systems to meet the rigorous demands of reliability, durability, and customer usage. Electric propulsion, autonomous navigation, advanced sensors, and sophisticated suspension designs are pushing mobility platforms further than ever. This means more mileage for vehicles and a longer life expectancy on the individual sub-systems than ever expected before.

At Roush, the Advanced Durability Lab is working closely with the most innovative mobility manufacturers to help make sure their products can withstand the grueling demands of the most congested dynamic urban areas to the damage of traversing the roughest roads.

From the beginning of the design process, Roush can help collect operational loads through transducer design and data acquisition. From there Roush can design tests to make sure each component and system can meet the demands of those loads. Finally, the entire system can be mounted to the Six Degree of Freedom Spindle Coupled Road Simulator to effectively expose the vehicle to road and proving ground events. This method can reduce development time by detecting problem areas early and simulating a complete life in just a matter of weeks.
