FRANKFURT, Germany — Technology company Continental is inviting customers, media and the investor community to experience the future of mobility through its latest cutting-edge technologies. At CES 2023, January 5-8 in Las Vegas, Continental will display innovations that are evolving vehicles for future mobility needs – making our roadways safer, user experience more immersive and driving more sustainable. The company will demonstrate how product solutions are improving the entire mobility spectrum, including the way vehicles function and how people engage with them.
“We are ushering in a new era of mobility,” said Gilles Mabire, Chief Technology Officer, Continental Automotive. “At CES, we’ll demonstrate how it is impacting the vehicle at every level, from the concrete to the cloud. These innovations will disrupt the entire mobility experience, not just for drivers, but for all forms of transportation, including vulnerable road users. At CES, we are offering a glimpse at how the future on the road will be safer, more sustainable, and more efficient.”
Autonomous and Smart Solutions – connecting to the cloud
Continental is integrating the “CV3” SoC family with artificial intelligence (AI) from semiconductor company Ambarella into its Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS). The aim is to offer the market scalable solutions that meet their individual requirements for assisted driving. The integration, announced in November, will be presented for the first time in Las Vegas.
The high-performance, power efficient and scalable SoC portfolio from Ambarella processes acquired sensor data faster and more comprehensively at about half the regular power consumption. This enables a broader environmental perception for safer mobility. With less power consumption and a lighter weight of the battery, the chipset can also contribute to an increased range of electric vehicles. It complements Continental’s solutions for assisted driving and further advances vehicle automation.
Continental’s HRL131 High-Performance LiDAR unlocks autonomous driving features. The HRL131 was developed with partner AEye. It is the automotive industry’s first software-defined long-range LiDAR – designed to see farther and react to objects sooner than previously possible. Vehicles can be detected at a distance of over 300 meters and pedestrians at a distance of over 200 meters. This way, the technology enables key features for passenger and commercial applications. Its ability to detect small obstacles, such as bricks, at high speeds from far distances in adverse weather is critical for advancing high-speed, highway autopilot and hub-to-hub autonomous trucking. Testing and validation of the production intent samples will occur in 2023. First series production is planned for end of 2024.
