Cutting the Edge
We are turning Fiction into Science! This motto is much more than just a catchword – until today, Continental looks back upon a 145 years’ experience of making the future come true... Our vision? Making mobility a great place to live – through greater safety, less CO2, less energy consumption, gained time and increased individual mobility!
At the IAA 2017, we will present the latest innovations at the edge of today’s technology in regard to Automated Driving, Electrification and Connectivity.
– the future of individual mobility is electricContinental is famous for its 48-Volt Technologies – e.g. the 48-Volt Eco Drive system. Our developments for climate-friendly hybrid and electric vehicles require a pool of expertise in many other areas, too: charging, high voltage technologies, super clean electrified diesel, optimized wheel, interaction concept, engine mounts... One example for Continental’s extensive portfolio of innovative developments is our brand new charging technology which turns the electric powertrain into a ‘universal charger’ catering to all types of cable-based charging stations. Our company offers forward-looking solutions – and a lot of fascinating fields of action for people who want to shape the future of mobility with us!
– shaping the digitalization of mobility
Since 1996, Continental has been connecting more than 30 million vehicles. As connectivity is becoming a key technology for future intelligent mobility, our concept of holistic connectivity includes all aspects of a connected vehicle – from the in-vehicle electronics architecture, through the seamless connection up to services and interaction between driver and vehicle. This universal approach creates a wide range of innovative products like e.g our speaker-less sound system which provides a high-end audio experience while requiring 95 % less volume than a conventional audio system.
We are paving the way for tomorrow’s mobility – and for this we need skilled and visionary people to provide drivers worldwide with the best possible network connection.
– our revolutionary path to seamless mobilityContinental’s worldwide development of systems and components for automated driving has brought forward groundbreaking state-of-the-art driving functions like Cruising Chauffeur, Parking Companion, Remote Garage Parking, Traffic Jam Assist or Trained Parking. Setting the stage for urban mobility, our demo vehicle CUbE (Continental Urban mobility Experience) presents a milestone in the development of driverless robo taxis and is already being tested at our Frankfurt site.
Driverless mobility holds a vast range of potential benefits for society – and countless professional possibilities for people who want to contribute, e.g. to our Vision Zero – no fatalities or serious injuries involving road traffic.
