Continental launches new connected vehicle technologies

First publishedon www.ITSInternational.com

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.

These 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.

The 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.
