The newly founded DLR Institute of Systems Engineering for Future Mobility in Oldenburg focuses on research into the methods needed to develop and validate future automated and autonomous transport systems. In this context, new efficient systems, engineering methods and tools are being developed to demonstrate functionality (verification) and practicality (validation) and to further develop trustworthy systems. The institute addresses the essential challenge of deploying future generations of transport systems. Across three departments, the researchers will investigate the central questions of technical trustworthiness regarding everything from integrated control systems to complete transport systems on road, rail and water.
- Developing fundamental knowledge, methods, procedures and tools to increase and ensure the technical trustworthiness of automated and autonomous transport systems
- Designing evaluation and validation methods for the approval of automated and autonomous transport systems
- Implementing these methods in virtual and physical test environments
- Developing standards for automated and autonomous transport systems
- Supporting the new primary discipline 'autonomics'
