Automotive Testing Expo 2009

Today I had the chance to peruse more cutting edge testing technologies at the Automotive Testing Expo 2009 in Novi, Michigan. It was good to meet a few new vendors and peers, as well as run into a couple existing clients. Though apparently smaller than last year, the show has a lot to offer, including a robot-mounted Harley Davidson motorcycle (don't worry, it only rides on the dyno... for now). Product categories included: Test simulation NVH analysis Occupant/pedestrian safet...

Needless to say, we've picked up a few new tricks along the way. Over t...
