Abstract [en]

This paper aims to elaborate the challenges and possibilities in automotive winter testing in Sweden, in particular the use of fleet management framework and steering robots, which have shown to be an interesting area for future automotive winter testing. Data was collected from a number of interviews, workshops and surveys Automotive manufacturers (OEMs), Tier 1 suppliers and service providers (e.g. test track owners and winter test entrepreneurs) contributed to the data collection. In general, service providers want to approach their customers in the value chain to provide new or extended services. From the data, the automotive industry is constantly pressed by shorter projects, fewer prototypes and the lack of state-of-the-art test methods. Service providers find the use of remote technologies, such as fleet management, an important part of their service, especially connected to the safety of test-drivers and overall test track safety. Service providers also consider further research in the area of fleet management and remote technologies as a base for future services. The automotive industry states that the possibility to replay the last run from logged data in the vehicle enhances the services The use of steering robots during winter testing can provide an opportunity to run repeatable and standardized testing. However, the views here vary a lot between companies regarding the usability of the steering robots during winter testing. This indicates that further research on the issue of providing standardized winter testing is necessary. Work to extend a fleet management framework and a pre-study of the usability of steering robots in winter testing have begun, using the studies presented in this paper as a basis for this work.
