Continental collaborates with German startup for ADAS, Auto News, ET Auto

New Delhi: Technology company Continental on Wednesday announced its collaboration with Germany-based startup company Automotive Artificial Intelligence (AAI) to develop advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and automated driving (AD) functions for the automotive space.

Under the collaboration, Continental will develop virtual simulation tools with AAI, which has competence to create virtual environments based on HD-maps and AI-driven road-users, that will be made available to the entire automotive industry, the company said in a release.

“Our ultimate goal is always absolute safety. This is especially true for automated driving,” said Karl Haupt, head of the business unit Advanced Driver Assistance Systems at Continental.

“Resources in vehicle test are limited and virtual testing can provide fast feedback for developers. While a real vehicle can drive around 10,000 test kilometers in a physical test in one month, today up to 8,000 kilometers per hour are possible with virtual simulation. This number will increase in future.”

Continental also claimed that the cooperation will make the development cycle of products shorter and safer and will also help AAI in increasing its automotive sector and sensor technology expertise.
