Need experts to perform field tests at your location?

Field testing

Testing assets in your own surroundings

Do your vehicles, systems or components still meet the relevant requirements? Are they still safe? And how do they behave in practice? Testing can be difficult if you cannot transport a vehicle, system or component to a specific test location. For example, rail infrastructure and systems for baggage handling. DEKRA provides field testing for these types of situations, where our experts carry out field tests at your location.

Our tests provide you with valuable input for your Asset Lifecycle Management. Through field testing, you receive information about the behaviour of your assets at your own location and/or in daily use. Using our mobile field lab, DEKRA can carry out tests and measurements under various conditions. When doing so, we always take into consideration your specific wishes and needs. And on the basis of analyses, you are given specific insight into the condition of your vehicle, (sub)system or component. DEKRA provides a wide range of customised field testing. See below which customised field tests DEKRA all offers.

Advantages of field testing

Field testing provides you with various advantages:

Customized field testing

No single field test is the same. That is why we first coordinate with you what you wish to know more about. We discuss which tests and/or measurements best answer your questions. Using smart sensors and practical tests, our expert then collects the relevant data. This provides insight into the status of the vehicle, (sub)system or component. After a critical analysis of the results, our expert provides you with the appropriate advice. In our advice we take into account an assessment framework, which includes your wishes and requirements, the relevant legislation and other standards.
