eHorizon Solutions – Cross Domain Use Cases

With Horizon technology, we are able to work with other Continental Business Units to develop cross-domain solutions and integrate them into vehicles from different manufacturers - from passenger cars to commercial vehicles.

eHorizon enabled Use Case – Intelligent Cruise Control

Extension of the Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) function, currently based on vehicle sensor information, only.

Automated longitudinal control by consideration of speed limits, curvature, slopes and other information from the Continental.cloud. Uses Mono camera, radar sensor, V2V hardware and optional v2V information. So your car can plan speed profiles for the longitudinal control for several hundred meters in advance.


eHorizon contribution:

  • Map and vehicle data analytics in the Continental.cloud
  • Fusion of data from vehicles and other sources
  • OTA delivery and continuous update of 3rd party ADAS maps
  • OTA delivery of up-to-date of road geometry (curvature, slopes) and road object data (speed signs) as a map extension layer

eHorizon enabled Use Case – Overtake Assist

Detection of overtake maneuver intention and information of the driver about recommended distance to start the maneuver.

  • Continuously calculate estimated overtaking distance (EOD) based on engine power, speed, road geometry
  • Continuously compare EOD with supported overtaking distance (SOD)  and plan overtake recommendation for several hundred meters in advance
  • System indicates distance to next recommended location to start overtake maneuver
