Assist Sensor System: Your eyes on the road

To make driving safer and autonomous mobility a reality, getting more input of a higher quality is needed. By combining different sensor views, Continental enables OEMs to use relevant data in a cost-effective package. Utilizing our smart cameras and radars, we offer unique views of the surroundings of the vehicle ­– with a scalable and modular system that can fit any carline. By fusing the input data from cameras and radars, our systems offer a better and more reliable image, making the road safer to use for everybody.

Designed as a modular and scalable system, our Assist Sensor packages offer various levels of complexity, able to fulfill the latest NCAP standards. As an entry system, one camera and a forward-looking radar are working in unison to provide the vehicle with a view of the front, covering a wide angle of 115° for the camera and +/- 50° for the radar, as well as a long range of more than 200 meters. Optional radars are available for the rear to provide additional safety.

In its most extensive configuration of the system, corner radars provide additional input and can protect against side collisions – an important requirement to achieve a five-star NCAP rating and level 2+ for autonomous driving. By combining the strength of each individual sensor system, Continental is able to increase safety even further. Our cameras can detect traffic signs and compute that input either directly on their chip or provide it as raw data for OEMs.

Human Vision: Enhancing your view

Continental developed innovative technologies to give drivers the best view of the surroundings of their vehicle. By combining several cameras with different points of view there will be no more blind spots, neither trailers nor pillars obscure the vision of the driver. We use flexible displays and seamless image stitching to offer full 360° views, giving drivers all the information they need. With our 3D view the driver will have a better understanding driving in challenging scenes like narrow area maneuvers. In addition, the driver can look straight through the vehicle.
More about Human Vision Read more

By combining visual information from cameras with augmented support tools like lines for parallel parking, we give drivers all the angles they need to safely steer their vehicle. Full surround view is made possible by our camera technology that can stitch multiple images together in never seen before quality. This is achieved by combining camera feeds with Continental’s leading sonic sensors. This way, drivers can see all around their car, select certain views for parking maneuvers and rest assured that they will not miss a thing. Our adaptive 3D view is already in series production and the next development step will raise this technology to a new level and be a foundation for trust building on the way towards autonomous mobility.

Part of our Human Vision technology package is also sophisticated camera feeds that help drivers in difficult situations. Adaptive View Controllers are selecting the ideal camera feed for challenging maneuvers, Transparent Vehicle Views are giving a comprehensive overview of the car, even looking through your vehicle’s hood is possible. Systems that detect other road users in blind spots are also part of our Human Vision portfolio as well as Drive Recorders with which drivers can record camera angles for theft alert or for insurance claims.
