TU Dresden - Mobility of the future

The Technical University of Dresden has its roots in the Technical Educational Institute Dresden, which was founded in 1828. Today, it is a university that includes engineering and natural sciences, as well as the humanities, cultural and social sciences, and medicine. This diversity of its disciplines, which is unique in Germany, obliges it to promote the interdisciplinarity of the sciences and to contribute to the integration of the sciences into society.

In the TU Dresden network, there is close cooperation with the fields of traffic, automotive engineering as well as key technologies such as lightweight construction, …

In addition, there are further close Cooperations with:


By developing innovative testing technologies to detect malfunctions, wear, aging and tampering in vehicle components and systems, FSD is making a significant contribution to managing the electronification of vehicles and road traffic, which is proceeding at an explosive pace, and thus striking a sensible balance between technical progress and risk control.

LZS GmbH is one of the leading development partners in the field of lightweight system design in Germany.
As a development service provider, it covers the entire chain from material characterization to the production and validation of components, assemblies and complete systems.
The aim is to provide customized solutions that meet specific requirements, closely linking design, simulation and testing. LZS is certified according to DIN EN ISO 9001:2015 and the testing laboratory is accredited according to DIN EN ISO 17025:2018.

DTA – Validation of automated Driving Functions in a real Environment

  • The real driving test in the vehicle development process
  • Reproducibility due to DGPS <1cm
  • Very good comparability
  • The final effectiveness analysis of driving functions by the real driving test will remain despite the increasing use of simulations.
  • Currently, the DTA package is applicable for standardized scenarios (e.g. Euro NCAP).
  • The DTA enables: set up measurement technology in any vehicle, perform the measurement and display the result within a short time < 45min.
  • Economical: Cost reduction by time optimization and resource saving.
  • Technical: Modular measurement system, which can be used as a whole or individually (e.g. vehicle safety, vehicle dynamics).
  • Ecological: Reusability in the area of passenger cars to secure e.g. Euro NCAP

DTA offers automated test solutions for active driving safety systems.
In doing so, it combines established market solutions into total solutions for the development and certification of NCAP relevant issues with the following partners:
