Optical Diagnostics for Automotive R&D

Optical diagnostic technologies such as laser imaging and fiber sensors are powerful development tools in many research laboratories of the automotive industry and help to efficiently utilize alternative fuel concepts to maximize contribution to a sustainable future. They are successfully applied to measure in-cylinder processes, air flows around and inside car bodies and to study deformation and strain behavior of automotive parts under stress. Automotive Imaging systems capture the optical quality of windshields and measure at the same time the image quality of camera-based ADAS systems.

Whether your focus is on engine performance, aerodynamic testing, dynamic deformation and strain measurements or on imaging tests for safer driving – LaVision is your partner to find the best measurement solution.
