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.

Cybersecurity in a Digitally Connected Railway System

Digitalisation is fundamentally changing the mobility industry. The railway sector is faced with increasing competition from other modes of transport and finds itself in an excellent position to benefit from the new digital potentials at the same time. In this study we analyse which regulations need to be observed to ensure comprehensive security and which security measures are required. The growing threat of cyberattacks must be mitigated to allow manufacturers and system integrators in the railway sector to take full advantage of the opportunities offered by the new digital age.

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.
