Ensure the automated driver assistance systems in your vehicles are safe and reliable with ADAS testing from Element.

Drivers have come to trust and rely on advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) to make “smart” driving, braking, and parking decisions for them, but ADAS vehicle systems are complex, and comprehensive testing is essential to ensure their safety and reliability.

Element’s testing experts understand the importance of comprehensive component and systems testing, especially when it comes to ADAS and active safety controls. Element has extensive capabilities covering this specialized area of testing and validation, offering both in-lab and field testing to cover all aspects of ADAS functionality, allowing you to explore the limits of innovation while delivering a superior product to market.

ADAS laboratory testing

Element has a long history of working with OEMs and tier suppliers to develop and implement specific testing protocols for various ADAS vehicle components and controls. Static in-lab testing is the starting point for validating the durability and operational effectiveness of ADAS components and systems, providing a controlled environment to test EMC/EMI, electrical systems, sensors, and more.

ADAS field testing

Our ADAS vehicle field testing uses an exhaustive array of road and weather conditions to test the effectiveness and reliability of all ADAS systems with realistic obstacles and under real-world conditions. Our experts evaluate the data generated during field testing to give you clear, accurate information about how your system performs.
