JUST A SMALL COG
Cars equipped with a certain gearbox are regularly failing due to damaged gearboxes. The OEM is pushing for a recall campaign that would cost more than €800 million.
S.QE develops a custom component test and locates the troublemaker, reconstructing how the problem arises. The error can now be turned on and off. Production analyses are initiated, showing that only a few of
the OEM’s vehicles are potentially at risk. This makes it possible to prevent a recall that would have damaged the company’s reputation. S.QE implements a software solution to prevent further failures. The software monitors the gearboxes and stops the potentially destructive mechanism from unfolding at the decisive moment. Since implementation, no further failures have been reported.
