On the other hand, it is one of the hardware protections of transmission for which to match the whole vehicle, so that the shift quality and comprehensive performances can be improved. The professional proving ground is an important link of the design and development for transmission. It is also the indispensable equipment of performance testing and calibration for all kinds of transmissions. The opening of the proving ground indicates that the company has the basic means of the vehicle road testing.
