Continental has presented intelligent products for safety, efficiency, and vehicle networking at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) Asia at the Shanghai New International Expo Center from June 13-15, 2018. The hardware and software range showcased by Continental extends from pedestrian recognition based on artificial intelligence (AI) to efficient and secure vehicle networking. Visitors to the Continental booth #5702 in hall N5 can experience in a live demonstration. The artificial intelligence behind the camera recognises and interprets the movements of visitors to the show.
“The development of the automotive industry is now no longer measured in horsepower and top speeds. It focuses on making safe, clean, intelligent, convenient mobility solutions available to users. That is why we are showcasing here at the CES Asia in Shanghai the cutting-edge technologies, solutions and services that will transport us into the future,” said Enno Tang, President and CEO of Continental China.
The technology company’s fifth generation of its multifunction camera relies on neural networks and smart algorithms as well as traditional computer vision processes to understand pedestrians’ intentions and gestures. The intelligent camera, which will go into production in 2020, stands out with its eight-megapixel resolution and aperture angle of up to 125 degrees, both of which are used to recognise potential obstacles even earlier.
The “digital companion” that Continental presented at the CES Asia is also capable of learning. To enable a normal conversation between driver and vehicle, a cloud-based voice-service is coupled to various functions, such as an interactive user guide. The innovative “AllCharge” system, developed by Continental, combines an electric motor and an inverter for a complete charging system. It allows drivers to head to any charging station and get the maximum amount of power.
