SafetyWissen App

SafetyWissen - Structured Access to the Requirements in Automotive Safety



Do you know this: You use search engines and internet databases to keep yourself updated. What are the current requirements and regulations? Which information from the internet can be trusted enough to actual work with it?


The new software - SafetyWissen - supports automotive safety engineers. "Searching" is replaced by "finding": instead of using and evaluating various own or existing databases and search engines, information will be available with a few clicks in clearly defined and arranged categories.


The SafetyWissen App provides current requirements for automotive safety and the respective background information in structured tables, images and documents. Latest news and updated data can be downloaded on a daily basis.


Instead of accidentally finding current regulations through search engines, the SafetyWissen App features safety relevant data which is implemented and updated by automotive safety experts. Engineers will save plenty of time.

The right edition for everyone:

Expert Edition

The free Expert Edition features public information for automotive safety. Amongst others international requirements with accompanying documents for various regions will be available.

Business Edition

Suppliers get the possibility to include their relevant products and services into the Business Edition. This information will be available to all users of all editions.

Corporate Edition

Die Corporate Edition bietet Unternehmen die Möglichkeit eigene Daten in der Datenbank abzulegen und nur innerhalb ihres Unternehmens verfügbar zu machen. Anforderungen können damit z.B. einzelnen Fahrzeugen oder Projekten zugeordnet und ausgewertet werden.
