Intertek, based in Milton Keynes in the UK, has expanded its on-road vehicle exhaust emissions testing and analysis to provide a wide variety of compliant test routes to maximize calibration robustness. This includes four nominal routes, a hot driver route and another that includes extensive hill climbing and descents enabling clients to test the robustness of their emissions control systems.
The expanded Intertek capability also includes route profiling, route planning and driver aids, such as driver behavior monitoring systems, to ensure delivery of the highest percentage of valid tests to customers. These tools enable new routes to be developed with far less reliance on road driving, which reduces route development time from weeks to days, and also driver aids that enable non-expert drivers to follow compliant routes without the need for a co-driver in the vehicle.
Intertek has also recently invested in low carbon vehicle, high performance electric machine and hybrid testing cells at its automotive test laboratory to enable its customers to reach their goals on air quality emissions and CO2 reduction.
