OEMs and Automotive Technology Providers Likely to Choose North American Test Beds over European and Asian Ones

Major automotive OEMs globally are now incorporating active safety and automated vehicle technologies in their future vehicle line-up to enhance safety and driver comfort. To gauge the suitability of each technology, continuous testing and validation is a must. Based on the supportive legislation, several regions across the globe have been identified to facilitate testing and validation under different conditions. While such experiments can be conducted in assigned secure public roads, there are certain closed facilities which are simulated real-world environments offering possibilities for advanced testing. These test beds are strapped with the latest technology to capture and process data from vehicle sensors. Companies associated with these test beds provide the technological, legal, and infrastructure backup needed. OEMs and third-party technology testers choose test beds as per their needs.

Research Aims and Objectives
Aim
The aim of this study is to research, analyze, and forecast the risks and opportunities for OEM partnerships with test bed facilities across Europe and North America.

Objectives
- To determine the major testing facilities, mainly in Europe and North America
- To understand and conclude on which out of the selected test beds are better equipped than others for the testing of automated vehicles
- To understand OEM and disruptor approach in testing of their automated driving product offering
