From Ideation to Creation to Evaluation
Exponent is uniquely positioned to support the full electric vehicle (EV) product lifecycle. We partner with clients to provide the engineering and scientific support needed to push boundaries on diverse product categories.
Engaging our experts in the design phase can identify vulnerabilities early in the process and help you get ahead of risks.
During prototyping, we investigate foreseeable conditions that your battery systems may experience once they're integrated into your EV designs.
In the production phase, we help our EV clients better understand concerns related to safety, reliability, fires, and issues that could lead to unintended consequences.
Our experts investigate the scope and implication of field failures. Does it warrant a recall? Was it a one-off concern? Was it a user misuse or abuse? How likely is it to happen again?
Exponent has been evaluating electrical and computer systems in EVs since their introduction. Our multidisciplinary teams know what to look for and how to get ahead of vulnerabilities that can put your product and reputation at risk.
ADAS-Equipped Electric Vehicles
Exponent has been working to improve driver assistance systems since their inception. We help clients mitigate long-term risks with our custom testing and independent reviews that uncover areas of concern in electric vehicles — from the circuitry and battery sensors to operating modes and trigger responses.
Learning From Failure
When accidents and failures happen, we can help identify detailed, actionable answers for what went wrong. From the dynamic behavior of vehicles to technical issues to component inspections, we study all aspects of any discovered issues and communicate them clearly so you can make the best decisions for correcting them.
Elevate Battery Safety & Performance
Electric vehicle fires can stem from battery issues or in systems that fail while powered with batteries. Exponent is uniquely positioned to take an integrated approach to investigating your battery management unit (BMU), battery cells, and battery pack. Our experts across thermal sciences, vehicle engineering, and materials corrosion can provide a 360-degree view of your design, environmental conditions, and other potential vulnerabilities.
For Time-Critical, Mission-Critical Challenges
Clients count on us for their high-stakes, urgent challenges. Exponent's in-house testing facilities along with our partner network provide rapid response on every continent, and we don't stop investigating until we get to the breakthrough insights you need.
New & Uncharted Is Where We Thrive
When there isn't an existing solution, we invent one. Exponent excels at tailoring a test or evaluation to your specific needs. Our work is powered by the knowledge, experience, and creative ingenuity of our Ph.D.-level experts. Because scientific rigor should underpin your most important decisions, not conjecture.
