Traffic & Infrastructure

Testing, inspection, and certification for smart- city traffic and infrastructure systems

You are here

  • Safe is securing smart city innovations

    Over the coming years, the design of traffic and infrastructure systems will rapidly change, spurred on by urbanization, the electrification of fleets, and more comprehensive regulations. Synergies created in communication technologies and IT hardware and software are leading to innovative solutions for tackling smart-city problems such as the reduced efficiency of transportation infrastructure, extended travel times, and increased air pollution. As technologies advance, the challenge lies in keeping the high-tech critical infrastructure safe while improving the quality of life for city dwellers.

  • Trends & Developments


    Renewable energy

    Within the next few years, fossil fuels will be overtaken by renewable energy sources, such as electricity and hydrogen, placing new demands on infrastructure.


    Congested infrastructure

    Ongoing urbanization is resulting in increasingly congested infrastructure, which innovative technologies can help to solve.

    Smart Car
