Millbrook Technology Park is home to many vehicle technology companies, each that have the benefit of immediate access to Millbrook’s tracks, test facilities, and expertise. The Park supports its tenants with test and engineering services, product development, facilities management, catering and hospitality, and product demos. For some time, Millbrook’s testing and validation processes measured the ambient temperature at a single location; however, new Vehicle Emissions Regulations (WLTP) now require this to be measured in each area and on a five-minute rolling average.

Millbrook also has multiple soaking areas operating at different temperatures, ranging from -20°C to +50°C, requiring numerous sensors. Millbrook was unable to find an existing solution on the market to ensure compliance with new regulatory requirements and meet the test and validation service process needs that would be supporting their new facility. Millbrook chose Red Lion Controls and Rotronic to create a custom solution.
