    Trends

    The wireless revolution brings a large number of challenges to industries globally. In the coming years, with the incorporation of embedded sensors and the analysis of big data in the cloud, the industrial sector will be subject to far-reaching intelligent automation.

    Pervasive connectivity throughout the value chain and in the energy grid will become no less than standard, from the initial design phase of a machine or product to everyday work in an industrial environment.

    The world is entering an age in which machines can order their own parts, perform maintenance, and evaluate and improve their own performance. But how do we ensure correct operation and functional safety, and stay ahead of new regulations?

    Opportunities

    As product life cycles become shorter, future production must swiftly adapt to changing market requirements. The potential of the wireless revolution can only be put to good use when manufacturers and workers have confidence in these new technologies. Bringing safety awareness to the forefront creates great opportunities for technological advancement.

    Our role

    DEKRA ensures that the energy grid, industrial installations, and work environments function according to international safety standards. We support excellence in design, configuration, operation, and maintenance of industrial products and hazardous environments.

    Self-learning systems will improve efficiency to a certain extent, but they must be functionally safe. DEKRA helps to minimize the risks and optimize the benefits through rigorous testing, inspection, and certification. Our experts build loyal partnerships through their relentless passion for product safety and connectivity.

    Our customers rely on us not only for our trusted certificates, but also to help them consider all the safety aspects of every single component used around the world. With independent product testing, we help businesses innovate and thrive in a connected world, while at the same time making it a safer place to live. We are the global partner for a safe connected world.
