Into the future with Smart Mobility
The future of mobility is electric, digital, autonomous and multimodal - on land, on water and in the air. Vehicles will become Internet devices, and modern IT infrastructures will transmit data fail-safely in real time. This will result in numerous new services and assistance systems, including autonomous driving.
The borderless transfer of people and goods between transport systems increases mobility. Modern management systems optimize the utilization of transport routes and contribute to a clean environment through the careful use of resources.
Anyone who wants to set mobility on this path and drive it forward has many opportunities under the banner of Automotive 4.0, but also many hurdles to overcome. After all, Germany and the international market are not a technology highway without a speed limit.
Innovations must follow safety standards to get them on the road. Components and systems must be standardized so that everyone can use them. Infrastructures must be created and legal frameworks must be met. And this is how we lead WG 6 Standardization in the National Platform "Future of Mobility".
Clear the way for the Connected Car: The VDE is committed to e-mobility, C2X communication and autonomous driving: for example, in 5G initiatives and labs as well as in projects with federal ministries. With the consumer portal Backbone, VDE explains what is needed to convert the energy system to renewable energies and what role e-cars play in this.
Our portfolio includes both product safety (Safety) and information security (Security). At the VDE Institute's Testing Labs, we test the entire electromobility infrastructure to ensure that the mobility of the future is safe all round: from components and lithium-ion batteries to the complete vehicle and e-charging columns. And our Prime Labs in Singapore and Silicon Valley focus on new energy storage systems. Our quality marks strengthen trust in your product among partners and end users.
