Advanced Emissions Test Centre (AETC)

Our AETC supports the delivery of both standardised legislative drive cycles and the rapidly expanding library of bespoke cycles developed in response to ‘Real Driving Emissions’.


RDE is a feature of the EU legislative landscape today and Chinese, Korean, Indian and Japanese legislation of the future. The AETC is designed to provide the development platform for global powertrain calibration and certification that the industry needs to address the widening scope of tailpipe emissions challenges. The combination of the state-of-the-art HORIBA 4WD dynamometer and emissions systems will allow the determination of exhaust pollutants over a range of climatic conditions and temperatures between -20°C and 35°C .
