Test site concept
The concept of FKVV (Fahrbahn-Kraftfahrzeug-Verkehrs-Versuchsanlage) has been developed on the basis of 57 major vehicle test sites world-wide. This study enabled to establish the key parameters for a new type of test site in Germany which will fulfil the future R&D requirements in vehicle design, road structure and traffic logistics. The test site is independent and available for everyone, especially for SME’s. Following a survey and concept adjustment in 2003, the test site will be built in accordance with the possibilities and requirements of industry. The first step will be the completion of the currently available off-road test site.
