VELA Lab Opens In Italy

SAE reports the Institute for Environment and Sustainability (IES) opened the Joint Research Centre (JRC) Vehicle Emissions Laboratory 7 (VELA 7) in Ispra, Italy in March.

The lab can now test heavy vehicles up to 40 feet long on a rolling road dynamometer that can accommodate tandem axles.

Because of this vehicles can now be tested directly instead of removing engine and subsystems and using an engine dyno for testing as in the past.
