Vehicles are equipped with many sensors for different purposes. However, these sensors are not always optimized for being used for any other purpose. For this reason, Continental developed a SW based solution to improve the sensor signal of acceleration and angular rate sensors for stronger requirements than the inital use case had.
An example is the offset drift of yaw rate sensors which needs to be compensated much more accurate for automated driving. Another example is the levelling of the headlights. Both use cases can be enabled with this SW improvement without placing additional or more expensive sensors, but simply by re-using the existing sensorsetup. This contributes to the sustainability of the whole vehicle lifecycle.
