At the concept engineering and technology definition stage MIRA assess the customer’s requirements and offer a tailored package of work to cover the aspirations of our global client base.

A 65 year heritage in vehicle test and development gives MIRA an understanding comparable to that of a vehicle manufacturer for interpreting a customer’s requirements and offering pragmatic solutions for complex engineering issues.

MIRA utilises its proven techniques in competitor benchmarking and system level target setting to determine the most applicable and appropriate targets for the application.

Once targets are agreed MIRA has the skills to deliver engineering services to full vehicle engineering for the complete vehicle programme.

To complete the architecture and technology definition stage extensive use is made of validated modelling and simulation tools to define the optimum solution for the targets.

The combined experience of the MIRA engineering design and analysis teams linked with MIRA’s extensive knowledge in the development and test of vehicles makes us the ideal partnership to deliver low carbon technologies.
