Show review: Automotive Testing Expo North America 2013

Automotive Testing Expo North America 2013 in Novi, Michigan had a host of new products and services for vehicle test and development on show, from locally made dynamometers to the plans for a new wind tunnel facility in the Czech Republic

 

One of those with new technology to present was returning exhibitor, National Instruments, which now offers the capability to change fuel injection timing and spark advance in an engine between spark plug firings at 6,000rpm in an engine-testing environment. Gary Parente of NI said, “This show adds a lot of value for us because we can demonstrate our expertise in automotive, and it also targets customers that are perfect application spaces for our high-performance FPGAs and our other products. It’s a very focused show for us and we place high value on it.”

Meanwhile Andrew Sharpe, of IO Instruments, in London, Ontario, brought his company’s newest ultra-high-resolution video camera and recording system to the Novi show for the first time. The Flare 12M-125 is a 12-megapixel camera designed for high-speed machine-vision parts-inspection applications. The new camera is offered in both color and monochrome versions, and can shoot at up to 125fps at a resolution of up to 4,000 x 3,000 pixels, with the capability to shoot up to 10,000fps at lesser resolutions.
 

An Automotive Testing Expo regular is Econ Technologies from Hangzhou, China, which brought the Premax P7-10, a higher channel count vibration control and measurement system that offers onboard multi-DSPs technology and Ethernet connectivity on a PXI bus for combinations of shaker control, vibration and noise measurement and analysis.

Elsewhere, Canadian exhibitor, Librestream, is tapping into the trend for global development projects with a new system of industrial-strength cameras and computer software that will allow any kind of manufacturing or quality problem to be solved by teams of experts using shared live audio, video, images and on-screen telestration without leaving their workstations.

The breadth of exhibits underlined the show’s standing within the automotive development community. David Wright, field applications engineer for PCB Piezotronics in Depew, New York, said, “This is THE show for automotive testing and we staff it with five or six of our people every year.” PCB showed sensors, cells, microphones and sound meters.
 

Bill Davidson of Mahle Powertrain, added, “I’m very impressed with the amount of traffic [we’ve had] at the show.”

Aside from more than 260 exhibitors, a further attraction for visitors to the Suburban Collection Showplace were the presentations, at the rate of three per hour for three consecutive days, from the testing industry’s experts in the Open Technology Forum. These included insight into the new durability testing robots developed by Ford and Autonomous Solutions, Inc.
