The autonomous vehicle movement began in 2009 when Google announced their self-driving car project. From there, tech giants such as Tesla, Apple, and Uber jumped on the bandwagon, designing their own software, code, and sensors in hopes of owning the autonomous space. By 2015, there wasn’t a single automaker who could ignore the draw of a self-driving vehicle. Companies such as Ford, Nissan, General Motors, and Mercedes started pouring into R&D in the hopes of being the first to produce an autonomous vehicle.

LHPTS knows that engineers and researchers working to optimize propulsion system performance need a comprehensive and flexible platform designed to evolve with today’s rapidly changing technology. With LHPTS’ ECS and ECS+, engineers and researchers have full authority over all the I/O going into the engine. There are no black boxes and nothing that is a mystery. Additionally, the ECS and ECS+ are inherently open-source platforms, which means users can easily tweak their tests and do whatever they need to do to improve performance.
