TÜV SÜD Automotive is an innovation-based design and development service provider and impartial partner in the field of product and process improvement for the automotive industry. Alternative drive concepts, Tire temperature method, 3D road measuring technology, investigations at tank test center, crash tests with airbag validation and pedestrian protection tests, functional safety for vehicle electronics - our consulting, testing and certification services ensure your safety at every turn.
Our Engine and Drive Train Test Center in Munich is driving development in advanced technologies such as fuel cells and hydrogen technology. To meet safety criteria, vehicle electronics systems must be failure-tolerant despite their growing complexity. This is one of the topics engaging the attention of TÜV SÜD Automotive electronics specialists. Crash tests using ECV (Electronically Controlled Vehicle) systems on our own test tracks provide detailed data on the passive safety of cars, buses and trucks. Cars are powered by their own engines as they are guided precisely towards the obstacle. Patented technology for early warning of tire damage is another TÜV contribution to vehicle safety.
