Automated and connected driving

Leading the way in safety tests for connected driving

At DEKRA we are defining new standards and strategies for the testing of both the latest and future mobility technologies. Discover how our specialists guide you with detailed tests and certifications for the latest connected cars and components.

The increased integration of wireless and network technologies is already enabling connectivity services in today’s generation of vehicles. Nowadays, many new cars come equipped with on-board diagnostics, cellular services such as eCall, and assistance agents. In the very near future, new connected car services and automation will increase comfort and safety even further, but this will also place additional demands on testing and certification.

Test area
Our unique connected car test area in Málaga, Spain, replicates real-life operation and behavior. This includes real and simulated infrastructure elements and vehicles as well as replicas of elements that interact with devices during testing. It is the ideal environment for R&D testing, pre-testing and testing for certification. It is an important component of the international testing network for connected and automated driving, which DEKRA is establishing. Another part of this is the recently acquired Lausitzring racetrack in Germany, which is Europe's largest independent testing center for connected and automated driving.
