Interface between

driver and road

Chassis layout and tuning plays an important role in vehicle development as the chassis represents the interface between driver and road. FEV’s chassis engineering services cover all activities in chassis development starting with concept layout  and definition of components’ technical specifications up to final fine-tuning and SOP release. The component development incorporates design and functionality with respect to safety, ride and handling (R&H) performance and continuous-travel comfort.

Highly skilled

Ride and Handling (R&H) team

Our R&H team feels at home on worldwide proving grounds and takes also benefit from FEV’s Racing Team. The team members are accustomed to manage system suppliers "at eye-level" assuring system and component quality, cost and performance targets. Our customer oriented work is characterized by open partnership utilizing in-house or – if requested - customers’ methods and Procedures.

@ FEV

The achievement of all development targets relies on up-to-date R&H simulation tools as well as on in-house test and validation  procedures complying with the international standards.

The process is supported by an extensive R&H parameter data base and by unique tools as e.g. FEV-C-VINS (Vehicle Interior Noise Simulation) for rolling noise optimization.
