The automotive industry faces different challenges today than it did just a couple of years ago. Cars have become very sophisticated pieces of technology. They need to be tested, not only to comply with international standards, but also to guarantee the safety of their users. As we move into the future, the importance of safe and sustainable mobility will become increasingly pressing. This century’s leading technological developments are making mobility more connected, more automated, and more energy efficient. Innovations both inside and outside the vehicle will create intelligent mobility systems that make driving smarter and safer.
