Mobility

Technological progress in transportation and social developments create more effective and sustainable mobility concepts. Today, road users select and change their modes of transport by situation and purpose. Safety in all types of transport is a prerequisite for mobility. The system of independent vehicle inspections (such as PTI) contributes to the high level of technical traffic safety. These inspections add to the compliance of legal climate and environment provisions in road, air or rail transport.

Joint Position VdTÜV and DEKRA: New Approaches to Vehicle and Road Safety

VdTÜV and DEKRA welcome the EU Commission’s proposal for a Regulation on type-approval requirements for motor vehicles and their trailers (COM/2018/286 final) dated 17 May 2018. The aim of the reform is to increase road safety and reduce the number of fatalities and severe injuries caused by accidents. The draft Regulation proposes far-reaching improvements in the field of active and passive safety. For example, new vehicles are to be equipped with automated braking and lane-keeping systems. New crash testing requirements are also planned.

VdTÜV Position: Independent Inspection of Roadworthiness and Operational Safety of Modern Vehicles – For Their Entire Life Cycle

Modern vehicles are no longer just hardware, but rather components of a digitally interconnected and integrated mobility ecosystem. The path to highly automated and connected driving goes hand in hand with a significant increase in complex and interdependent systems both inside and outside the vehicle. In future, it will be possible to make remote changes to a vehicle’s functionality from a cloud using radio technology.
