IAMTS will carefully select the providers of membership services, define applicable registration and qualification processes and approvals, and define process for regular review and confirmation based on customer feedback and performance. Contact information of registered and approved service providers will be made available via a database to the members.
An important aspect of the membership model is to provide opportunities to Members to become a service provider as well as to provide incentives to corporate Members to utilize services through the Alliance. Below is an overview about the membership services that are contemplated for IAMTS. Get involved today to help prioritize, define and develop the qualification processes for these services.

Excerpt: Testing vehicles for SAE Automation Level 4 and 5 requires a new approach how the vehicles are being tested because the responsibility to control the vehicle is handed over from a human being to a machine. The key challenge is to replicate Operational Design Domains (ODD’s) in physical testbeds (whether in closed or open test environments) that fit to the driving capabilities of the Automated Driving System (ADS) to be tested. In order to simulate a specific ODD in a virtual environment, it is important to capture data from the real world environment being simulated such as road or building information in sufficient precision.
While the mobility industry continues to invest in the research and development of automated vehicles, it also realizes that a great deal of testing and validation is needed to ensure optimal safety. The time is now to establish standards, share best practices, and propel this technology into the next generation.
This year’s event, hosted by TÜV SÜD, a trusted partner of choice for safety, security and sustainability solutions, brings together key thought leaders from academia, research, industry, and government throughout the automotive engineering industry to discuss the latest automated vehicle testing programs, data acquisition and analytics approaches, and research that will inevitably drive the industry forward to a fully connected and automated vehicle.
In this second annual event, technical experts will discuss ideas and methods to bridge the gap between technologies and products to address the top challenges of automated vehicle testing. This event will dive deeper to address automated vehicle (AV) testing needs, priorities and opportunities for collaboration; harmonizing AV testing; optimizing the capabilities and availability of global test facilities; and global delivery of testing services and expected outcomes from regulators.
When: October - date to be announced soon
Where: TÜV SÜD AG, Westendstraße 199, Munich, Germany
