How can we increase transport efficiency in a growing city?
Solving complex challenges for our urban future
The world’s urban population is on the rise. For the first time in history, more of us live in cities than rural areas. The need to develop an efficient transportation network to support urbanisation has become more critical than ever. With decades of experience in automotive, rail, safety and security solutions, we are uniquely placed to help solve the challenges of our urban future and create a desirable quality of life for us all.
The New Mobility revolution places the user at the heart of the transformation. It addresses the needs of users, by improving accessibility through various modes of transport. TÜV SÜD’s expertise in safety requirements and standards development support the adoption of new technologies in the mobility sector. The following case studies highlight TÜV SÜD’s role in areas of innovation within New Mobility.
In a partnership with NVIDIA Corporation and AVL GmbH, we are defining parameters such as safety requirements, potential critical driving scenarios, and evaluation criteria necessary to establish simulation as a test method in vehicle approval. Read more about the case study here.
As part of the PEGASUS research project promoted by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) in Germany, we are working with 16 industrial and research partners to formulate method and test requirements to ensure safety of highly automated driving functions for highway deployment. TÜV SÜD is also actively involved in Singapore’s Centre of Excellence for Testing and Research of Autonomous Driving (CETRAN). Learn more here.
With Deutsche Bahn, we developed the “Additive Manufacturer Certification Scheme” for Additive Manufacturing (AM) suppliers of spare parts and finished components. The scheme ensures consistent and reproducible product quality throughout the rail industry’s process chain.
To propel Autonomous Vehicle (AV) development, we have participated in the development of the first national regulatory framework, Technical Reference 68 (TR68), for fully autonomous vehicle launched by Singapore. We were in the working groups for operational / functional safety, cyber security and vehicular data.
