Crashes are simulated on the dynamic test facility to ensure that products meet TÜV safety standards. Companies can also use the facility, for example, to have a newly developed wheelchair tested for approval as a seat in a vehicle.

Thanks to the proximity to the test center, employees in product development can test their ideas at an early stage and optimize them if necessary.
