Trusted by engineers worldwide
Founded in 1982 as a vehicle engineering consultancy, AB Dynamics has grown steadily to become one of the world’s most trusted suppliers of automotive test systems. Today, our clients include the top 25 global vehicle manufacturers, all seven Euro NCAP laboratories and numerous government test authorities.
Applications range from highly-efficient durability testing to precision control for critical new areas of technology development such as active safety and autonomous driving, all with efficient data and protocol integration from virtual to physical to real-world.
Our background in vehicle development, combined with our close relationships with leading vehicle manufacturers, has given us a deep understanding of the fast-changing demands placed on test programmes.
With less time and fewer prototypes available to develop more technologies and more derivatives, test systems must be dependable, quick to set-up and efficient to integrate seamlessly with your development processes.
Should you need support in a remote location anywhere in the world, it must be available quickly to keep your programme on-track. And when you are planning the next generation of technology introductions, you need to know that your test system supplier is already developing the solutions you need and can upgrade your existing systems’ hardware and software, reliably and cost-effectively.
At AB Dynamics, we have knowledgeable, passionate people who are focussed on helping you meet your objectives both now and into the future.
System of choice
Our kinematics and compliance machine (SPMM 5000), part of our range of laboratory-based test systems, is the choice of many of the world’s leading car manufacturers, tyre companies and test labs.
The first SPMMs are still in daily use, having jointly contributed to thousands of vehicle platforms over the past 20 years and received hardware and software upgrades that ensure they continue to deliver the data and test system integration required by today’s complex programmes.
The industry benchmark
Our driving robots, part of our range of track-based test systems, are a first-class example of the trust that is placed in AB Dynamics. They are quite simply the industry benchmark, used by the 25 largest vehicle manufacturers worldwide, by government authorities including NHTSA and by Euro NCAP and its sister organisations.
Together, they have contributed to the development of generations of vehicles and to many of the world’s most important test protocols.

What our customers say
In terms of customer service, the staff at ABD continues to demonstrate the importance of staying current with the testing requirements required for automotive development.
The people at ABD in the UK are really competent. Their support has been superb. They know their product, they know our applications, and they help us figure out what’s wrong when we get stumped.
New Venture Gear Inc.
We highly recommend the company and products they create. Service has never been an issue. Eager to help and satisfy the customer needs, ABD is truly a customer oriented company that will go the extra mile.
Toyota Technical Center, USA
I would like to thank you for the support which you have extended to make me well versed with the working of the software. It has helped me in doing my job effectively and with more confidence. I am now much more positive about doing the tests in a correct way and getting correct results.
TVS Motor Company
Our first ABD robot, purchased back in 1998, is still in use for everyday testing and performing according to specification. Also given the fact that ABD offers a fast and effective support, this makes the ABD Steering Robot one of the most reliable instrumentation kits we use.
I cannot give you enough thanks with all of the expedited support you have given us. You exceed any other supplier for Getrag that I have ever dealt with!
Service support from ABD is impressive, with quick, expert response delivered straight from the team that develops the product.
Honda R&D, UK
When direct contact is required for customer service, the numerous time zones between North America and Europe do not hinder ABD’s ability to support our needs.
