BPW Brake test rig
Before a new development goes into serial production, it must pass numerous tests at the BPW Test Centre. Performance over a travelling distance of 1.6 million kilometres is simulated here. The results then serve as the basis for further development - or as the reason for turning the prototype into a serial product.
