Welcome to SafeTRANS

SafeTRANS ("Safety in Transportation Systems") is a Competence Cluster combining research and development expertise in the area of complex embedded systems in transportation systems (automotive, avionics, rail, and maritime) and further safety-critical domains.
The 33rd SafeTRANS Industrial Day with the topic of
"Scenario based Testing of Highly Automated Systems" took place on
24th April 2024in Roding in co-operation with AVL Software and Functions GmbH
You will find the program and more information here.

The current White Paper on the topic 
"Controlling Risk for Highly Automated Transportation Systems
Operating in Complex Open Enviroments"
can be found this way.
  • SafeTRANS supports its members in the preparation and harmonisation of research and development strategies, summarises the strategies in roadmaps and anchors identified priority topics in national and European funding programs.

    In addition to strategic activities, SafeTRANS fosters project incubation on national and European level, e. g. through consortium building, selection of topics, and help in the application process. The sustainability of project results and its industrial use are supported by the establishment of a so called ecosystem.
