Vehicle technology - Saving lives through technical safety

The potential for accidents, which is especially high when people first start driving, can be reduced by making use of vehicle technology. One aspect that is crucial to achieving this is the continual advancement in digitalizing vehicle drives in combination with control equipment. Because of this, the systems that are installed should definitely not feature any serious defects or impermissible changes to the design and should be working flawlessly. DEKRA has proven how important this is in several road tests, with striking results. In the future, systems such as the automatic speed limiter could also reduce the risk of accidents. After all, excessive speed, or speed that is not appropriately adapted to the situation at hand, is one of the main causes of accidents for young drivers.
