Continental launches new connected vehicle
Continental will be presenting several
examples of its new applications and services for handling performance, vehicle
management, logistics, and automated driving at this year's International Motor
Show Commercial Vehicles (IAA Commercial Vehicles) in Hanover.
include the ContiPressureCheck system which monitors the pressure and
temperature of all tires consistently, even while driving, and the dynamic
eHorizon, a sensor system that supplies vehicles with real-time information,
which allows the handling performance to be adapted to the current traffic
situation in good time.
The dynamic eHorizon anticipates the road ahead
and is just as efficient in urban traffic. With real-time data on traffic light
phases, the vehicle can implement an optimum driving strategy.
ContiPressureCheck sensors inside the tyres monitor the pressure and temperature
of all tires on the vehicle continuously, during travel. The data are constantly
recorded and displayed to the driver.
ContiPressureCheck is quick and
easy to install and can also be retrofitted when the tyres are changed. It is
compatible with various telematics systems and is integrated in Continental’s
VDO TIS-Web fleet management software.
