The driverless public bus services in Bad Birnbach now also connect the train station in Leithen with the city centre – a big step forward for public transport in the spa town, and a further milestone in the development of autonomous driving. TÜV SÜD's experts have played a substantial role in the development and approval of the driverless buses right from the start, with TÜV SÜD's AV (automated vehicle) Permit service package at the heart of design and development activities. Within the scope of this full-service offer, TÜV SÜD's experts assist customers worldwide with the entire approval process and provide advisory services from an early stage of planning. Focal topics of AV Permit are vehicle safety and functional safety, cybersecurity and the applicable requirements of local law governing autonomous vehicle approval. TÜV SÜD’s involvement with the first autonomous bus to run in public service in Germany underlines the company’s leading position as a technical services and inspection body in the design and development of autonomous driving.

Assessment of the condition of vehicles during their collection and return is playing an increasingly important role as rising demand and frequency impact on the shared-mobility sector. Digital Vehicle Scan (DVS) records a vehicle's condition in only 30 seconds. For this purpose, up to 22 cameras scan the entire vehicle, including the underside, while it is driven through the system. DVS even measures tyre inflation pressure and tread depth. In addition, TÜV SÜD is developing automatic damage identification based on artificial intelligence. Through its commitment in this field, TÜV SÜD is emphasising its goal of being the number-one supplier of third-party vehicle assessments.
TÜV SÜD is using artificial intelligence (AI) to bring fresh impetus to the vehicle remarketing industry. “Mic” (Move In Circles) is the name given to a robot that can take high-quality 360-degree pictures of vehicle exteriors fully automatically. In addition, the system optimises the photo documentation workflows in used vehicle management processes. Once taken, photos can be edited by Mic’s AI technology, which centres the vehicle in the shot and stabilises the image. Photos for remarketing used vehicles can be taken fast and flexibly with regard to location, eliminating the need for any major infrastructure and thus streamlining costs. In future Mic will form the core of PhotoFairy 360°, a service provided by TÜV SÜD to support professional marketing at car dealerships.
