Last year, TÜV SÜD launched a cooperation with NVIDIA and AVL GmbH to develop a certification process for highly/fully automated vehicles. The goal of this collaboration is to validate and establish simulation as a method and approval tool for the digital homologation of the future. With his presentation at GPU Technology Conference (GTC) in Silicon Valley this week, Dr. Houssem Abdellatif, Head of Automated Driving and Driver Assistance Systems at TÜV SÜD Mobility, offers a detailed look at the development scenario of digital homologation.
An evaluation of the LBST Power-to-Gas (PtG) database shows that PtG-technology is advancing towards maturity and can increasingly be found in commercial applications. More than 50 PtG plants with a total electric capacity of more than 55 MW are in operation or planned throughout Germany. Further large projects in the three-digit MW range have already been announced.
Showcasing new services, TÜV SÜD demonstrates at WindEurope 2019 that further optimisation of the safe harnessing of wind power is possible. TÜV SÜD's presence at the conference and exhibition focuses on assessments and inspections for the lifetime extension and site-specific certification of wind-turbine generators (WTGs) and the certification of floating foundations for offshore wind turbines. WindEurope 2019 will take place in Bilbao from 2 to 4 April 2019. (Hall1, Stand C46)

Companies are increasingly incorporating Free and Open-Source Software (FOSS) in their business operations. However, even the use of Free and Open-Source Software is governed by licensing agreements that must be followed. TÜV SÜD has developed a ground-breaking certification process based on the OpenChain specification, which enables companies to review their underlying processes and document their compliance with licensing agreements. Hitachi, Ltd. was the first company in the world to receive the new TÜV SÜD certificate.
TÜV SÜD has acquired the IWT4 Instrumented Wheelset Technology business from SNC-Lavalin (formerly Interfleet Technology). The acquisition further bolsters TÜV SÜD’s position as a one-stop-shop for independent assessment, testing and approval of railway vehicles.
