Tornado Test Bed

Test bed automation.

Tornado Test Bed is a freely configurable automation system optimised for automotive testing, test data acquisition and processing.

Tornado Test Bed provides testing, controlling and monitoring functions optimised for test beds in automotive applications. The program is designed to handle the challenges involved in component testing as well as the complex demands of powertrain and application testing.

Together with ADAC, the real-time control and monitoring system, the testing and automation system meets all the demands placed on a modern, flexible solution.
A comprehensive driver library means existing third-party hardware and systems can be integrated flexibly and seamlessly.

Development test bed or end of line testing automated with one system.
