Braunschweig, July 2021 - On June 17, the State Secretary for Digitalization of Lower Saxony, Stefan Muhle, visited the Braunschweig-based automotive specialist NORDSYS GmbH. Manfred Miller, the managing partner of NORDSYS GmbH, was pleased with the intensive exchange with Stefan Muhle regarding the technical developments that are distributed from Braunschweig to the entire world. The company develops products and solutions for networking vehicles with each other and the infrastructure (V2X communication), which will make the traffic of the future safer and thus save human lives. In addition, V2X technology is considered one of the key technologies for autonomous driving.
The importance of the Lower Saxony test track, which was co-initiated by NORDSYS GmbH, was also discussed during the dialog. Here, the company sees even more potential for the use of the test track for vehicle manufacturers and their suppliers in the future. "We need to be even closer to the industry with the Lower Saxony test site so that we can carry out tests promptly and unbureaucratically," said Manfred Miller.

V2X test site in cooperation with ADAC

NORDSYS GmbH is currently working with the ADAC Fahrsicherheits-Zentrum Hannover/Laatzen to equip a test site in Hannover, which will be available to other companies for the development and testing of V2X systems.

Promoting the digitization strategy

Another topic of exchange was the importance of medium-sized businesses in Lower Saxony in implementing the state's digitization strategy. "As a medium-sized company, we can contribute our specialized know-how, innovative strength and flexibility in a targeted and efficient manner," Miller emphasized.

V2X test drive rounds off the visit

Afterwards, State Secretary Muhle was enthusiastic about the new possibilities of V2X technology during a test drive. The focus was on protecting the lives of particularly vulnerable road users such as pedestrians and cyclists, as well as on the increase in comfort provided by a green phase assistant.
