As a result of automation, most driving tasks will be handed over to the vehicle control system, while connectivity will allow even the safety features of a vehicle to be changed flexibly in future by means of over-the-air updates. The responsibilities of Technical Services can be divided into two types of activities: pre-market and post-market activities. The challenges and activities will be elaborated in detail.
