Paving the way for autonomous mobility

Autonomous driving is one of the major future fields of the automotive industry. Cruising, parking, driverless, human vision and safety technologies offer unsuspected potential for making mobility more sustainable, more comfortable and, most importantly, safer. And this market is booming: forecasts show that it will multiply in the next few years. At the same time, the variety of skills and capabilities required to realize autonomous mobility is expanding. With our safe, supportive, and complementary system solutions for assisted and automated driving as well as our 25 years of experience, Continental is driving this trend forward and developing intelligent technologies that take over more and more driving functions – if the driver is willing to. The advantage for commercial vehicles, cars, or motorcycles: increased safety, more comfort and more efficiency for the autonomous mobility of tomorrow.

From lower to higher automation levels (L1-4+), Continental offers modular and scalable solutions from surround view to automated parking systems. These are based on a seamlessly interconnected software and hardware toolset and computing infrastructure that serves the growing amount of sensor data in the vehicle for assisted and automated driving. Our broad components portfolio, which can be scaled to complete full-stack systems, includes high-resolution cameras, radars, lidars, ultrasonic sensors as well as assisted and automated driving control units. To date, we have brought more than 150 million sensors and 2.4 million assisted and automated driving control units onto the road for future autonomous mobility. We are convinced that even in assisted driving, the combination of different sensor technologies provides significant added value for safety, comfort and functional availability on the road. The vision of safe autonomous mobility can only be realized if the entire vehicle environment is perceived redundantly. We provide the necessary safety products and complementary solutions for more confidence in automated driving.

Newest addition: Continental is now incorporating the fully scalable “CV3” system-on-chip (SoC) family from semiconductor company Ambarella into our Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) solutions. The powerful and energy efficient SoC solutions based on AI are tailored to ADAS applications and complement our portfolio. This takes our assisted systems to the next level. They offer more power, consume less energy, require less cooling and with this, save system costs. The integration will help to further advance vehicle automation and pave the way towards autonomous mobility.
