GM has made an announcement about their new brake chassis dynamometer that makes it easier for them to ensure that the brakes are working correctly in their new vehicles. The new braking technology will offer better options to the engineers working at the GM brake testing facility as they can test the brakes in an efficient way in the future.

The new brake chassis dynamometer can simulate braking in all weather conditions ranging from Alaska to any tropical island around the world. The new technology will also allow engineers to take up to 1,900 stops in short period of time.

The new brake chassis dynamometer was developed along with supplier Link Engineering. This new state of the art braking facility can run 24 hours and simulate underbody flow and humidity and air temperature. The new facility is located at the GM Proving Ground in Milford, Michigan. The ability to replicate and control the conditions will make it easier for GM to offer better braking options to the customers.
