TÜV SÜD as charter member of the new International Alliance for Mobility Testing and Standardization (IAMTS)

Together with SAE International, China Automotive Technology and Research Center (CATARC), Shanghai Intelligent Automotive Center (SIAC) and International Transportation Innovation Center (ITIC) TÜV SÜD has joined the new Alliance for Mobility Testing and Standardization (IAMTS) as charter member. The IAMTS was officially announced at the SAE WCX World Congress 2019 in Detroit, USA, and aims to interconnect leading international standardization institutions, test fields and highly automated driving vehicle validation methodologies. Thereby, IAMTS develops and establishes best practices and state of the art testing and validation methods for manufacturers and mobility-as-a-service companies and provides them with a set of physical and virtual test environments.

The goal and mission of the International Alliance for Mobility Testing and Standardization (IAMTS)

Currently, knowledge and approaches concerning road traffic laws, certification regulations and testing standards related to highly automated driving and its transitional products vary across major markets. The intention of the Alliance for Mobility Testing and Standardization (IAMTS) is to figure out how to better communicate such variations and share the complex information derived from testing and verification practices globally, to accelerate the coordinated development of testing and verification technologies. As a “global membership-based alliance of organizations involved in the testing, standardization and certification of advanced mobility systems and services” the IAMTS follows the mission “to develop and grow an international portfolio of smart mobility testbeds that meet the highest quality implementation and operational standards.”

The alliance further aims to bring together testbed users and operators at a global scale to share testing methods and data, as well as testing systems and equipment to develop “a commonly accepted framework of regulations, test scenarios, validation and certification methods, and terminology.”

As an expert for assessing and testing the safety of autonomous driving technology, TÜV SÜD will use its expertise and testing methods to play an active role in shaping the future of mobility and raising the society's confidence on automated driving.
