According to the company, the new radar sensors tech solutions will enable anticipatory applications for Euro NCAP requirements through higher automated driving functions such as automated lane changes.
Continental, the German multinational automotive parts manufacturing company, on Wednesday said that it will showcase a slew of innovative software and hardware solutions at the Shanghai International Automobile Industry Exhibition from April 21 to 28, 2021.
The new solutions will facilitate the integration of software functions in-vehicle components, Continental said in a release.
They include high-tech radar sensors, high-performance computers as central control units in the vehicle and data communication through to the cloud as part of telematics systems.
Next Generation Design for Automotive Manufacturers
Electrification, connectivity, autonomous driving and lightweight construction are changing vehicles and the way that people interact with them. Tune in to this Live session to learn how a truly integrated, end-to-end design and engineering platform
The company will unveil the sixth generation of radar sensors to make autonomous mobility safer. According to the company, the new radar sensor solutions will enable anticipatory applications for Euro NCAP requirements through higher automated driving functions such as automated lane changes.
The technical features of the sixth generation, which will go into production in 2023, include an improved detection range and a higher resolution for accurate detection of the vehicle’s surroundings, the company informed.
At the Shanghai exhibition, Continental will be presenting its end-to-end network solution for connected cars for the first time. From the sensor, the high-performance computer and the connectivity unit to the cloud, this solution implements reliable function integration.
The company has also developed Continental Automotive Edge Platform (CAEdge), a modular hardware and software platform, which will make it convenient for drivers to obtain the new functions they want in the future through software updates throughout the entire service life of the vehicle.
CAEdge connects the vehicle to the cloud and, with the help of a virtual workbench, offers numerous opportunities for the development, provision and maintenance of software-intensive system functions.
With this platform, Continental aims to strengthen its role in the development of the latest vehicle architectures and software. In the future, it will provide vehicle manufacturers and partners with a development environment for software-intensive vehicle architectures that can be used to implement software, sensor technology and big data solutions in a fraction of the previous development time.
