We are fast and efficient when configuring a test system tailored to the customers’ needs.

ADAS HiL test systems tailored to your needs: As real test drives are highly time-consuming, require a lot of test driver resources, and cannot be repeated to 100%, virtual test drives are inevitable to test todays sensors and sensor fusion electronic control units (ECU) for the future autonomous driving. With the aid of HiL, individual parts of an integrated system can be simulated and tested in a virtual environment in real-time. The HiL test systems of SET allow for an efficient assessment of devices under test (DUT) while reducing testing time and costs (Total Cost of Test) as well as increasing reliability. The fully automated test processes lead to lower potential for failure and reduce the overall risk. We support you in project management – from defining system requirements to implementing and starting up the finished system.
