Safe, Convenient, Award-Winning: Continental Receives CES 2019 Innovation Award
Las Vegas, December 6, 2018. With its solutions for intelligent vehicle doors, the technology company Continental is optimizing the relationship between safety and convenience. State-of-the-art technologies such as the intelligent door brake system and the smart autonomous door support convenient opening and closing operations, while stopping vehicle doors from uncontrolled slamming. In addition, their obstacle detection functions lead to greater safety in road traffic scenarios and prevents dents and paint scratches.
The smart autonomous door system is also a necessary function for automated driving. Driverless vehicles must be able to open and close their doors even without operators or door handles to deal with different practical situations and allow passengers to get in and out conveniently. Thanks to its advanced functions, Continental’s intelligent door system has been recognized as a CES 2019 Innovation Award honoree in the Vehicle Intelligence and Self-Driving Technology category. The CES organizer CTA (Consumer Technology Association) announced the honorees during its annual CES Unveiled New York event, an invitation-only tech event that offers a sneak peek of the products and trends expected at the upcoming CES 2019, January 8-11.
Innovation award honors important contribution to safe and convenient mobility
“The CES Innovation Award is both a confirmation and an incentive for our developer team,” said Johann Hiebl, head of Continental Body & Security business unit. “Ultimately, we want to keep increasing convenience and safety for drivers and all other road users with our solutions.” To enable visitors to experience the full range of functions of Continental’s high-tech door technology, the developers have designed an interactive demo vehicle for the Consumer Electronics Show 2019 in Las Vegas with two different approaches for intelligent door systems.
