CES Honors for Continental’s Transparent Trailer
“With a highly-competitive selection process, every individual recognition at the CES Innovation Awards is an honor,” said Robert Lee, President, Continental Automotive Technologies North America. “To earn four awards across multiple categories speaks to the commitment and expertise of our team. We can make an impact in so many areas because our team members inspire each other by breaking new barriers. Innovation has been the heartbeat of Continental for 150 years and these technologies are another example of that.”
Continental’s Transparent Vehicle technology gives drivers a full view of a vehicle’s surroundings. Utilizing four cameras, it captures images from around a vehicle and then applies Continental’s proprietary algorithm to stitch them together through a control unit.
The result is an unobstructed view of the surroundings from any angle, which allows for safer low-speed maneuvers and parking. By giving drivers a new perspective, Continental’s Transparent Vehicle technology can improve safety and reduce crashes.
Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X) technology using Collective Perception improves traffic safety differently. Collective Perception adds information from new V2X message standards to enable cars and drivers to see through the eyes of others.
With V2X using Collective Perception, a vehicle leverages information from other vehicles’ sensors and infrastructure sensors to enhance safety in non-line-of-sight situations. This is significant because of the benefit to vulnerable road users who, according to the World Health Organization, represent more than 50 percent of all worldwide traffic fatalities — including pedestrians, animals, bicyclists, scooters, skateboarders and motorcyclists.
