The 60 km long Stuttgart driving circuit was defined 10 years ago in cooperation with Robert Bosch GmbH. This stretch of road is representative of driving routes in Germany. By matching the route parameters with statistical data, it is continuously verified that the route provides a very good approximation of the distribution of road categories, as well as of the topography and the speed profile. The agreement of these parameters is essential to obtain meaningful results for energy research of all types.

 

On the driving circuit, the FKFS regularly carries out scientifically established testing series on various issues. Some OEMs and suppliers also use this stretch of road for their own investigations.
