Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt e.V.
DLR is the Federal Republic of Germany’s research centre for aeronautics and space. We conduct research and development activities in the fields of aeronautics, space, energy, transport, security and digitalisation. The German Space Agency at DLR plans and implements the national space programme on behalf of the federal government. Two DLR project management agencies oversee funding programmes and support knowledge transfer. Climate, mobility, and technology are changing globally. DLR uses the expertise of its 55 research institutes and facilities to develop solutions to these challenges. Our 10,000 employees share a mission – to explore Earth and space and develop technologies for a sustainable future. In doing so, DLR contributes to strengthening Germany’s position as a prime location for research and industry. The DLR’s institute of transportation systems is a well-established player in the area of testing and validation of connected and automated driving in Europe. It operates automated and connected research vehicles and supports automated vehicle testing and validation by different simulators and testbeds. In collaborating with IAMTS, DLR seeks to be in close contact with international experts within the field. Additionally, DLR aims to promote the visibility of its testbeds in the IAMTS’ database of physical, cyber-physical and virtual testbeds.
