Proving Ground

Introduction

  • The Proving Ground is a performance assessment facility for and research & development of riding vehicles on actual roads and road safety facilities
    • - High-speed circuit on which various high-speed performances are assessed
    • - Universal Track for various purposes
    • - Curve test road for steering performance test during a turning
    • - Straight-line track for quick-check and acceleration noise test and noise test area with ISO certification
    • - EMC test pad to assess electronic systems in free electromagnetic state
    • - Low-friction track that reproduces frozen roads, hardened snow-covered roads, snow-covered roads and wet road totest ABS
    • - Skid pad to test tire viscosity and feature assessment
    • - Off-road test track to test the durability of car frame and chassis parts
    • - Test ground of road safety features to support new product development and assessment tests through testing withactual objects of road safety facilities: guide sign facilities, skid-proof pavement, etc.
  • Test Tracks
