For more than 35 years Anthony Best Dynamics (ABD) provide leading technology such as K&C test stands, driving robots, path following systems, driverless test systems and herewith synchronizable autonomous soft crash targets. Even a mixed operation of the vehicles and external actuators became a reality in the meantime. Over 1000 ABD systems are in operation worldwide, from a single driving robot up to systems for the driverless operation of multiple vehicles as well as pedestrian and soft targets . The quality and robustness of ABDs systems is unsurpassed and proves by the fact that ABDs first robot systems are still in use.
A wide product range of fast and non-destructive installable actuators meet the demands for most different applications such as driving dynamic tests, autonomous misuse or rough road testing, EuroNCAP AEB test, evaluation of ADAS systems, durability tests, parking and crash tests, truck homologation and stationary applications on test stands and much more. Even when every needed robot has been installed in the vehicle, a human can still drive the vehicle normally. Every ABD solution is seamless integrated with others, uses the same intuitive multilingual and touchscreen enabled software interface which reduces the training effort substantially.
