Automated Driving

Automated Driving

Automated driving can increase safety, but it can also create new traffic situations that can be unsettling. In addition, the question of responsibility in the event of accidents has still not been clarified. Automated driving cannot prevent accidents 100%, but it can create new accident scenarios. DEKRA is therefore thinking ahead in terms of safety in order to reduce the technical risk to almost zero.

DEKRA is very interested in ensuring and developing existing services (main vehicle inspection, emissions testing) and new, innovative services. With the DEKRA Technology Center and the Lausitzring, the company operates Europe's largest independent test centre for automated and networked mobility of the future. Our experts are also in constant dialogue with political decision makers in Berlin and Brussels.

DEKRA's central requirement is secure data transmission as part of the main vehicle inspection as well as unrestricted access for neutral test authorities to safety and environmentally relevant manufacturer and vehicle data. DEKRA is always available as a partner for an even more intensive cooperation and networking of all institutions entrusted with automated driving.
