Show review: Automotive Testing Expo Europe 2013

Automotive Testing Expo was a huge success as record numbers of visitors from around the globe immersed themselves in the latest innovations on show, and took advantage of the free-to-attend Open Technology Forums


Show founder Tony Robinson said, "The show's very busy, and with all the right people. When you see people engaged in conversations for 20-30 minutes, that’s business being done, and we’re seeing that here today – as always at Automotive Testing Expo."

Expo visitor Grégory Gackel, embedded electronics integration and validation manager at PSA Peugeot Citroën, said, "I've seen some very interesting products here, particularly items linked to electronics testing."

And Dr Falko Vogler, chief transmission engineer at Amtek Tekfor Holding GmbH added, “It's my first time at the show and my first impressions are very good. You can get direct contact with very qualified individuals who can answer your questions.”

Many exhibitors used Automotive Testing Expo Europe as a platform for new product launches or exciting company announcements.

Shares in one of the exhibitors, Anthony Best Dynamics (ABD), were listed on the London Stock Exchange’s AIM (Alternative Investment Maket) just two weeks before the show. Company founder Tony Best expressed his satisfaction with how the market has received the listing – the share price had risen from its launch price of 86p to 110p by the time of the Expo. “We’ve seen good interest in all our products at the show,” he reported, “and the first day was the busiest we’ve ever had in Stuttgart.”

Another exhibitor with reason to celebrate is MTS Systems Corporation, for which the show coincided with the 40th anniversary of the company’s presence in Europe, and the opening of a new office in Stuttgart.

Horiba, meanwhile, launched its latest pitot tube flow meter for exhaust gas flow rate measurement, the PTFM-1000 V2, which boasts high-frequency transducers that increase the sampling rate from 10Hz to 1kHz. Another product making its debut was LMS’s innovative SoundBrush device, which provides a new way of visualising the sound around an object in 3D.

Elsewhere, regular exhibitor Oxford Technical Solutions (OxTS) took the opportunity to showcase some additional capabilities of its RT range of INS/GPS devices for motion, position and orientation measurement.

"The show's been busy, with a lot of good-quality OEM contacts," said OxTS's marketing communications manager, Janina Milner. "There has been a lot of interest around AEB testing and traffic-sign recognition testing."

For the Test World winter proving ground, meanwhile, the Expo provided an important opportunity to gather feedback on the facility’s future expansion plans. “It’s been very effective to be here to discuss the plans for Phase 2 of our indoor winter testing facility with customers, face to face,” said managing director Harri Eskelinen.

The specialist areas for Crash Testing and Vehicle Dynamics also proved popular. In the latter, there were daily presentations to ‘The World’s Fastest Engineers’ – the top three drivers to have sampled exhibitor Cruden’s driving simulator on each day of the show. Each received a bottle of champagne for their efforts!

Giuseppe Callea, head of vehicle dynamics at Bhai Tech and a visitor to the three-day event at Messe Stuttgart, explained, "The range of applications on show here is very wide. The level of the presentations in the Vehicle Dynamics Forum is also very high.”
