Automotive engineering, research, development and testing company, HORIBA MIRA has established a new Vehicle Resilience (VRES) Technology Centre at its UK headquarters in Nuneaton.
HORIBA MIRA has established the world’s first engineering and test facility dedicated to a combined approach to automotive cyber-security, functional safety and electromagnetic resilience.
The company states that the VRES offering has been specifically developed in response to the emergence of increasingly electrified, connected and automated vehicles.
The VRES Technology Centre includes modelling and simulation capabilities and is supported by more than 14 test facilities for physical testing.
Graeme Stewart, Chief Technical Officer at HORIBA MIRA said, ‘By combining automotive cybersecurity, electromagnetic resilience and functional safety for the first time, HORIBA MIRA will deliver advanced engineering solutions in line with the increasing complexity of electrified, connected and automated vehicles, to address the growing and evolving risks to vehicle safety, security and functionality.’
The development of VRES has created a number of new high value engineering jobs at HORIBA MIRA and this will continue to expand through 2019 and on into 2020.
