Advanced science.  Applied technology.





Our automotive services encompass engines, emissions, lubricants, fuels, autonomous vehicles, traffic management systems, and vehicle research and development. We design, develop and test a wide range of components, engines, transmissions and vehicles helping to address difficult technical issues and improve performance through research and modeling of fuel mixing, combustion, tribology, filtration, structural analysis, noise and vibration harshness (NVH) and fluid-flow analysis. We are recognized internationally for our longstanding fuels and lubricants research, quality performance and client response. Multi-client cooperative industry research programs in many areas help manufacturers achieve lower exhaust emissions and improve fuel economy.

A broad range of services are available for product research, product development and product qualification of automotive components and automotive fluids for on-road, off-road, rail, and water-borne transportation systems as well as recreational vehicles and stationary power equipment.
