New ADAS and CAV testing complex - work in progress

Over the summer months, we have continued working on the construction of the new tracks that will soon expand Applus+ IDIADA’s ADAS and CAV testing facilities. Progress is swift and the facilities are expected to be operative during the third quarter of 2022.


For the design of the tracks, IDIADA’s Test Facility Design department are supported by our ADAS and CAV experts to integrate the current and future testing and engineering requirements for the development and validation of connected and automated vehicles in a safe and confidential environment.


IDIADA Proving Ground is expanding its ADAS and CAV testing facilities by constructing a new test track complex in Spain.

IDIADA is starting the construction of a new set of test tracks specially designed for ADAS and CAV testing and validation at our Proving Ground in l'Albornar, Spain.

This expansion of IDIADA's ADAS and CAV facilities comprises the construction of multiple tracks that will reproduce urban, interurban and motorway environments. The facilities are expected to be operative the third quarter 2022.

These tracks will complement our current capabilities in our Proving Ground in Spain; more precisely, our Connected Vehicle Hub, which is equipped with a private cellular network that builds on top of our renowned test tracks and closes the gap between the physical and the digital world, enabling state-of-the-art Connected and Automated Vehicle development.
