About DRI

At the forefront of technical innovation

Since 1979 DRI has played a pivotal role in the development of safer vehicles, and we continue to shape the future of mobility as the automotive industry transitions to autonomy. At DRI we have never been happy with the status quo, which has driven us to develop new technologies that in-turn enable our customers to achieve what was previously impossible.

Our knowledge and expertise

Whether it’s through vehicle dynamics, ADAS and suspension system testing, human factors research, or pioneering test products, we’re providing our customers with the knowledge and expertise to make vehicles smarter, more sustainable and to enhance the safety and comfort of drivers and passengers.

Our pioneering spirit

The pioneering spirit that DRI embodies led us to develop innovations such as the Guided Soft Target (GST) platform and the Soft Car 360 – which was adopted by Euro NCAP as its Global Vehicle Target and is now used by the world’s leading OEMs, proving grounds and testing houses to safely develop the next generation of vehicles.
