Vehicle performance and emissions testing technology provider Global MRV has appointed ProCat Testing, an independent powertrain testing center, as a distributor of its innovative Firefly technology in North America.
Global MRV’s Firefly vehicle performance and emissions monitor provides powertrain engineers with immediate access to on-road emissions test data. These unique insights from Firefly data acquisition and analytics enable faster in-vehicle calibration and can help reduce product development times. Overall, engineers can obtain better emissions data and become more efficient in the vehicle durability testing phase.
“Firefly’s proven capability to collect accurate and repeatable emissions data 24/7 represents a major breakthrough in understanding Real Driving Emissions and other impact factors that affect vehicle performance in the real world,” said Nina McIntyre, general manager of ProCat Testing. “We are excited to collaborate with Global MRV to offer our OEM customers immediate access to this extremely valuable data.”
With automotive manufacturers and environmental regulators seeking new ways to gather more data on Real Driving Emissions, Firefly offers a solution to gather data quickly and cost-effectively. A huge component of this is the Firefly hardware-as-a-service model – which addresses a growing push among OEMs for zero downtime on test equipment – with Global MRV providing 24/7 service and support.
“ProCat is an ideal partner with whom to grow our OEM business. Their track record and technical resources will allow us to accelerate our ability to service and support OEM customers with Firefly technology,” added Jeremy Burne, director of business development at Global MRV.
