AIC Introduces Comprehensive ADR98 AEB Testing

July 14, 2023

The Auto Innovation Centre (AIC) is excited to announce they are now an approved ROVER Test Facility for the newly released ADR98/00 – Advanced Emergency Braking (AEB).

This new ADR98 service offering by the AIC will be an important test for vehicle modifiers developing frontal protection systems or producing GVM upgrade packages to ensure vehicle safety and compliance, and is applicable to new model vehicles from 1st March 2023.

“We are pleased to offer testing to ADR98/00 – Advanced Emergency Braking to support Federal submissions for vehicle-type approvals as well as product development and research purposes,” said Luke Truskinger, AIC Managing Director.

“The AIC’s purpose is to break down development barriers by offering the aftermarket solutions as vehicle technology and regulations continue to change. With the majority of new vehicles now equipped with AEB, it is crucial that companies ensure the parts they are developing for these vehicles, such as bull bars and suspension upgrades are compliant with ADR98.”

The AIC’s state-of-the-art testing capability features an ISO compliant foam vehicle target, custom tow fixture, plus specialised test equipment, forming an integral component of the AIC’s suite of vehicle testing services.

In addition to ADR98 testing, the AIC is a ROVER recognised testing facility for: ADR31 (Passenger Vehicle Brake), ADR35 (Commercial Vehicle Brake), ADR62 (Mechanical Connections – Tow Bars), ADR88 (Electronic Stability Control), ADR89 (Brake Assist Systems).

Product level testing is also a speciality of the Auto Innovation Centre with hydraulic durability, vibration, tensile testing and shock absorber testing available at the AIC’s Melbourne facility.
