Testing Facilities

Automotive transportation comes in all shapes and sizes and is in demand 24/7. ITIC is dedicated to serving that ethos, providing a safe, secure, around-the-clock testing environment for any automotive organization regardless of brand affiliation.

With a broad configuration of test areas, including a 1-mile high-speed test track; 1,700-ft-long Durability Track; commercial-grade EV charging; off-road areas; an on-site fire department and more, ITIC has the infrastructure in place to test and validate nearly any vehicle imaginable, at any time of the year.

Main Track

The spine of the ITIC test facility is supported by a one-mile main track that may be configured in various ways to test vehicle dynamics, braking, lane changes, steering or even a safe place to test ADAS technologies.  Features include:

  • Up to 5400 ft. x 175 ft. straightaway asphalt track
  • Vehicle staging and pull-off areas
  • Delineated for multiple lanes upon request

Durability Track

ITIC’s 1700-ft-long durability track is designed with all events necessary to benchmark test for the Federal Transit Administration’s Structural Durability Test Procedures for public transportation.

The durability track can simulate accelerated wear and tear on large commercial vehicles in a controlled environment.   Customers can use the specific sequences of the profiles to obtain repeatable data collection or partial use of certain areas for testing durability.

ITIC’S durability track design provides users the convenience of half the number of turnarounds, creating a more efficient testing environment. Fewer turnarounds, coupled with rest areas spaced in between test events, provide for a more comfortable test experience for drivers. An emergency lane between event lanes allows drivers to bypass specific events or pull off in the event of an emergency.  Exact specifications are available upon request.

Vehicle test events include:

  • Staggered bumps
  • Railroad crossings
  • Frame twist
  • High crown intersection
  • 4-inch chuck holes
  • 1-inch random chuckholes
  • ¾-inch chatter bumps

Brake Lane

The asphalt Brake Lane track provides the necessary grip to satisfy PFC requirements of 1.02 using the new 16″ SRTT, required by NHTSA FMVSS TP 105, 121, 126, and 135.

Slope Hill

ITIC has recently added a new Slope Hill track with the objective of satisfying various Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) requirements. The Slope Hill track is intended to satisfy FMVSS Test Procedure (TP) 135 includes both a 150-ft (45 m) hill with a 10% gradient and a separate hill with a 20% gradient and a length of 100 ft (30 m). Each hill is surfaced with a 15 ft (4.5 m) concrete lane parallel to a basalt tile low adhesion surface permitting both high adhesion and split mu testing.
