- Laboratories for electric mobility and connected vehicle functions
- Test fields in Málaga (Spain) and Klettwitz (Germany)
- Virtual reality application shows possible testing scenarios at Lausitzring
International expert organization DEKRA is presenting its services in the field of homologation and product testing at the Automotive Testing Expo and the Autonomous Vehicle Technology Expo in Stuttgart. Both fairs take place from May 21 to 23, dealing with test, inspection and development procedures, as well as advanced technologies for the development of autonomous vehicles.
One highlight of DEKRA’s presence at the Autonomous Vehicle Technology Expo (Hall 6, Stand No. AV7030) will be the virtual reality application making it possible to experience possible testing scenarios at the DEKRA Lausitzring in Klettwitz (Germany). The racetrack has been owned by DEKRA since November 2017 and is being developed – together with the neighboring DEKRA Technology Center – to be Europe’s largest independent test site for automated and connected driving.
The various DEKRA laboratories and test sites – among others in the Netherlands, Germany, Spain and several locations in Asia – each have a specific focus. In the DEKRA Technology Center at the Lausitzring the focus lies on automated and connected driving tests. The DEKRA site in Málaga (Spain) offers unique expertise in the field of wireless communications, which also forms the basis for driving tests. The Netherlands are DEKRA’s expertise center for charging technology and automotive EMC testing. The Asian laboratories offer a wide range of services. Altogether, the international test network for connected, automated and electric driving allows DEKRA’s customers to make use of comprehensive services from a single source, as is shown on the Automotive Testing Expo (Hall 8, Stand No. 8244).
Notable OEMs, suppliers and engineering service providers as well as national approval authorities already place their trust in DEKRA, benefiting from the company’s established experience and specialized expertise. They appreciate DEKRA’s unique testing competence in its international network of test sites and laboratories, for product development, type approval and quality assurance.
DEKRA’s services for the automotive industry comprise diverse testing, inspection and certification services. Vehicle tests in terms of on driving dynamics, pedestrian protection, driver assistance systems, automated and connected driving are on offer, as well as electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) and other tests involving radio frequency (RF), wireless and cellular technologies. Cyber security, photometry and automotive lighting, open road field tests and damage analysis complete the portfolio.
