More stories related to SAE DETROIT – Mercedes-Benz Technology Group (MBTech), debuts a new line of testing and development systems for vehicle electronic control units (ECUs) at the Society of Automotive Engineers World Congress here.

The German supplier says the new system, dubbed Provetech, provides more accurate testing results due to its ability to simulate a number of different scenarios, which helps identify potential problems earlier in the development cycle and improve component functionality.

Provetech includes three components: the dedicated, customizable software; a fully developed test suite providing real-time testing and automated testing functions; and a mobile testing platform.

Separately, MBTech signs an agreement with Chrysler Group to provide simulation, modeling and testing services with responsibility for hardware-in-the-loop testing systems and support.
