PAVE Europe News and Announcements
We sat down with Karl Obermair, Chairman of the Board of PAVE Europe, to talk about his vision for the organization and his insights on AV adoption in Europe.
Karl, what is your role in your daily life?
I am the Future Mobility Director of TÜV Rheinland, which means that my experts team and I are responsible for developing new innovative mobility services for TÜV Rheinland on a global level. For example we develop testing methods for autonomous driving vehicles or we are working on a method to objectively measure the so called “State-of-Health” (SoH) for used BEV-batteries. TÜV Rheinland is one of the leading global TIC-players, TIC stands for testing-inspecting-certifying.
How did you get into the AV space?
The mantra for future mobility is since many year the acronym ACES – autonomous, connected, electrified and shared - so you simply have to deal with the different levels of automation if you work in that segment, regardless if we are talking about public or private transport or if we are talking about passenger or goods transport.
