Automated Driving - Safeguarding and Market Introduction


The seminar presents the necessary and sufficient conditions for bringing automated vehicles onto the market. In addition, requirements for product monitoring and market surveillance will be derived, which can be used to ensure that the technology proves itself throughout the entire product life cycle. The question is addressed as to what forms automated driving can be expected to take in private transport, local passenger and freight transport, long-distance transport and in very special areas of application, and what opportunities connectivity and digitization of the technology open up.

Who should attend?

The seminar is aimed at engineers who are faced with the task of making automated vehicles ready for the market and providing legally compliant proof of the safety of these vehicles.

Course Objectives
