After a construction period of just under two years, the KBA laboratory commenced operations on August 19, 2021. At its core are two modern roller dynamometers for exhaust gas measurements, which are used not only for pure vehicle tests but also for calibrating the KBA's own mobile exhaust gas measuring devices (PEMS). In addition, the laboratory is equipped with state-of-the-art measurement technology and air-conditioning and IT systems. The modern functional building with its 1,400 m² gross floor area also meets all the energy requirements for today's new buildings.

Today's vehicle technology is a highly complex system, the essence of which is regulated by legal standards that are as complex as they are demanding. At the same time, today's state of the art is subject to ever shorter innovation cycles, so that testing methods are also subject to a constant development process. Not only the increasingly stringent requirements in the area of exhaust and noise emissions, but also the developments in the field of highly automated to autonomous driving therefore require independent, reliable and efficient government monitoring. In our KBA laboratory, the engineers and technicians employed here have access to the necessary testing infrastructure with state of the art measurement technology as well as air-conditioning and IT facilities to carry out a wide range of measurements for vehicle safety and environmental protection.
