Currently, it is not possible to perform tests on public roads beyond the scope of the Ordinance on Automated Driving (AutomatFahrV).

The Contact Point Automated Mobility will gladly collect the relevant requirements in order to include them into the process of expanding the test possibilities, where appropriate.
