Automotive supplier Continental has announced to expand the scope of functions of its tire pressure sensors: Future sensor generations will be able to detect the total weight of the vehicle. With this move, the company intends to make a contribution to safety.   In today's passenger vehicles, drivers never really know if the weight of their payload lies within the safety limits or not. To close this gap, Continental is currently developing a generation of pressure sensors that are smart en ...
Less traffic congestions is what a recently concluded pilot project in Cologne aimed at. In the project, the City of Cologne and IBM collaborated in developing algorithms that reduce traffic congestion by means of traffic forecasts.   In order to generate short-time traffic forecasts, the system processed huge numbers of traffic data. According to IBM, with an accuracy of better than 90 percent, the results were very encouraging.   The City disposes of a traffic management centre wit ...
The car as we know it is an obsolescent model. All automotive engineers know this, because their entire work gyrates about re-inventing it everyday. At the recent Euroforum conference on Automotive electronics in Munich, it once again became clear which factors drive the development, and attendees got an idea of how individual mobility in the future will look like.   The point is that not only the vehicle itself is subject to technical progress but also the business model of the carmakers. ...
Automotive supplier Continental has introduced a concept vehicle in which the output signals of multiple driver assistance systems are bundled in an innovative multi-purpose LED display. With this design the inventors hope to reduce driver distraction.   The statistic of the US Department of Transportation speaks a clear language: Driver distraction is a major cause of accidents. In the United States alone, every day ten persons are killed and more than 1100 receive an injury in accidents ...
