We offer infrastructure to test electric and hybrid electric vehicles. This infrastructure consists of measurement equipment for vehicles and vehicle monitoring, as well as a vehicle dyno-roller bench and a number of self-build electric vehicles' components and a number of production electric and hybrid vehicles.

Flanders Make - Equipment for electric & hybrid vehicles

The measurement equipment can be used for detailed roller bench testing and on-road testing of vehicles while GPS and CAN-based data-loggers can be used for vehicle and fleet monitoring.

The available electric & hybrid vehicles and their historic data can be used for performance and behaviour benchmarking. Our infrastructure includes a collection of chargers (fast, semi-fast, slow) that enable the use and testing of electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles in a wide range of use cases. The new Open vehicle Platform with connected IoT (with Digital Twin) enables us to test all vehicle components including emerging technologies and control unit systems and improving the design and control of the vehicle systems.

What do we offer?

We offer our expertise in testing of electric and hybrid vehicles with roller bench and on-road tests, and vehicle fleet monitoring. Our infrastructure and equipment allow us to apply our expertise and make comprehensive assessments of the vehicle, its performance and behaviour. Including following testing capabilities:

  • Powertrain components and subsystems testing and evaluation via the Open Vehicle Platform


  • Power electronics and vehicle powertrain testing up to 350kW
  • Automotive charging and charging infrastructure in G2V and V2G modes
  • Conformance of charging systems (incl. standard testing and analysis communication protocol (PWM, PLC)
  • High accuracy measurement methods, developed especially for analysis of electrical signals described in IEC61851-1
  • Testing and validation of control system units (CSUs) and energy management systems (EMSs) for vehicle drivetrains.
