Continental’s R&D for ADAS

Continental’s R&D for ADAS

So much of the technology we see is years away from being on the market, but not at the Continental technology event, we attended Frankfurt, Germany.

Continental’s Wolfgang Fey is the director of research & development for Advanced Driver Assistance Systems. Fey talked to Lou Ann Hammond, CEO, www.drivingthenation.com.

Which technologies from the Advanced Driver Assistance Systems will come out the soonest?

What is the one technology that Continental needs to have ready to implement quickly?

Pedestrian protection regulations have made the front of cars look bulbous. Is there a technology that Continental could implement that might allow car designers to design the front of a car in an aesthetically pleasing look again?

There are studies that show that lane departure is not effective. What will take over?
