Addressing the Vehicular Electrical and Electronic Architecture
Michael Crane of Continental: “Your phone gets updates and so its utility improves over time. Your vehicle can do the same thing.” With the right E/E architecture, it will.
NVIDIA’s Level 2 system; a 3D solution from U-M that sees the light; Toyota aims to smarten China’s car industry; a camera that sees like the fishes.
Continental Addresses the Challenges of Automated Driving
And those challenges aren’t all sensor- and algorithm-based, either.
The Evolution to Autonomy
According to Continental’s Karl Haupt, the move to automated driving is one that will come in increments, not sudden disruptions.
Continental Moves Toward the Future
By bringing a wide range of technologies to bear, Continental is advancing automated driving capabilities. And it is even putting it on the road in its own development vehicle.
Swarming the Weather
Continental Corp. (continental-corporation.com) is working with the French national weather service, Météo France, on using connected vehicles and swarm intelligence for purposes of providing drivers with accurate information . . . about the weather.
Smartphone vs. the Car Key
Are the days of the physical car key numbered?
Does Paul Elio Have Disruptive Technology?
Paul Elio says he recently read The Innovator’s Dilemma by Clayton Christensen (Harvard Business Review Press; 1997) and he thought that it was, in effect, telling the story of Elio Motors (eliomotors.com), the company that Elio established in 2009 to create a transformative motor vehicle.
Is This What the Future of Safer Driving Will Look Like?
Well, from a conceptual standpoint, probably.
Open to Opportunity in Functionality & Connectivity @ Conti
In just over 100 years, the interfaces on vehicles have gone from a simple needle on a numbered dial to a plethora of information.
Continental: Engineering the Future
You can let the future happen, or you can help shape it. When it comes to automotive technology, the people at Continental are pursuing the latter course in a massive way.
Cars Talk - With the Outside World
Telematics technology is advancing rapidly, so that communications both to and from vehicles can lead to safer, more efficient driving.
Continental: Heads Up
Working toward improving driver safety and the overall driving experience, Continental is developing advanced technology that makes heads-up displays even more useful. Why heads-up displays? Because drivers keep their eyes where they belong, on the road ahead.
Continental Helps Create the Vehicular Future
Addressing things like mobility, the environment and connectivity, Continental is developing game-changing technology for the automotive future--and that future, in some cases, is at hand.
Sensors: More, Not Less (Number & Usefulness)
The number of sensors on the average vehicle continues to rise, but it’s how you take that information and relay it to the driver that really matters.
Talking Infotainment & Connectivity
Kieran O’Sullivan of Continental talks about how changes in tech will make in-vehicle information and entertainment more accessible.
On Electronics - January 2011
Accelerometers for AirbagsA family of high-g acceleration sensors able to detect rapid deceleration of vehicles during a crash has been developed by STMicroelectronics (www.st.com). These "AISI DS" peripheral-sensor accelerometers provide single-axis, in-plane motion sensing from ±20 to ±400 g.
Continental's Connected Safety Focus
More than 28,000 people were killed in passenger vehicle accidents in the U.S. in 2007, with another 2.2 million injured, resulting in a $230-billion drag on the economy.
