Customized service


Test design

We will draw up test designs that meet your needs and all legal requirements, defining the testing process and determining the necessary measurements.


Vehicle preparation

We will fit the necessary measurement and testing technology to the vehicle on your behalf, and we will arrange for the transfer to testing countries.



We offer comprehensive testing resources. You can make independent use of our workshop areas, third-party assembly shops, and various test benches.


Interpretation of results

Following testing, we will prepare the results for you, interpret them on request, and present them to you in the format of your choice.


Individual testing services

When testing a specific component, you can either take the measurements yourself or let Bosch Engineering associates do it for you.


Test chain

When testing several components, you can rely on our team’s expertise to take the measurements – or you can conduct the tests yourself.
