ALP.Lab offers a continuous digital test chain in a complete simulation environment, for urban and rural environments as well as highways. This includes, amongst other advantages, access to a unique, European-wide and fully developed testing tunnel. ALP.Lab is also the exclusive Euro NCAP test partner for Active Safety – using a brand new Euro NCAP approved test track in Upper Austria (by DSD).
