Our Smart Autonomous Door offers a fully autonomous and safe door opening and closing via a smart device. It reduces the physical effort for passengers during door operations and increases safety in road traffic by preventing accidents or damages via the integrated obstacle detection function.
Continental’s Smart Autonomous Door is a necessary feature for automated driving. Driverless vehicles must be able to open and close their doors automatically to allow passengers to get in or out conveniently.
The Smart Autonomous Door combines our PASE system with the Power Door Control functionality. The PASE system (hands-free access and start) triggers an automatic and contact-less unlocking of the vehicle doors via a smart device whereas our Power Door functionality initiates a controlled but automatic opening of the door. During these operations the passengers as well as the vehicle are protected against damages by our industry-benchmark anti-pinch functionality as well as our Intelligent Door Brake System.
