Modern vehicles already offer various driver assistance systems, which make driving easier. The future mobility goes one step further: Assistance systems partially or highly automated driving and soon autonomous vehicles. The driver is partly or completely relieved of the driving tasks and pointed out dangers in road traffic.

To make this driving legally secure for the future, the regulations are currently being revised nationally and internationally. In the development of systems, the guidelines and standards must be adapted or completely redesigned. The topics of IT security and data protection represent a major challenge in connected and automated driving.

Automated and driver-less cars in public transportation

Automatic and driverless vehicles in public transport offer solutions to some problems in the transport sector. However, there are currently a number of challenges that still need to be overcome before they can be implemented on a wider level. The VdTÜV compiled these challenges and possible solutions in the current position paper.
