ADVANCED engineering solutions provider AB Dynamics of Bradford on Avon has won the Tech Achievement of the Year at the UK Tech Awards.

Attended by over 800 people comprising of tech entrepreneurs and fast-growing tech companies, the UK Tech Awards recognise exceptional achievement in the fast-moving tech sector.

AB Dynamics is a key partner to the global automotive industry, having supplied innovative testing systems for research and development and production quality control for over 35 years.

The company’s range of driving robots and advanced driver-assistance systems targets are used by the likes of the USA-based National Highway Traffic Safety Association (NHTSA) and the European New Car Assessment Programme (Euro NCAP) to develop generation after generation of test standards.

Tim Rogers, Chief Executive Officer at AB Dynamics, which has just built a £9 million state-of-the-art offices and factory at Middleton Drive, said, “We are immensely proud to win this award and for our cutting-edge technology and hard-working team to be recognised by esteemed members of the technology industry.”

AB Dynamics has supplied innovative, high quality test equipment to the global automotive industry for over 30 years. The 25 most successful vehicle manufacturers worldwide all use AB Dynamics' driving robots, along with NHTSA and Euro NCAP to develop testing standards.

AB Dynamics supplied the first steering robot for quantitative vehicle testing on the track in 1998, and has now supplied over 750 driving robot systems around the world, making it the number one supplier in this field.

AB Dynamics was an early pioneer of the use of an inertial global positioning system motion pack to control the path of a vehicle in 2001, and in 2007 was one of the first manufacturers to sell a system for testing vehicles on the track without a driver onboard - this is the award-winning Driverless Test System.
