Continental Launches Series Production of Technologies for Robo-Taxis – ET Auto

New Delhi: Continental has launched series production of technologies for the driverless taxis. The technology company’s radar sensor for autonomous vehicles will be in production for the first time in EasyMile EZ10 shuttle, built by the French company where Continental has a stake since 2017.

The EasyMIle EZ10 autonomous shuttle will start using the Continental’s radar sensor from late 2019. This radar sensor is claimed to have a detection radius of up to 200 meters. There will be total of seven radar sensors alongside laser sensors and cameras onboard the EZ10.

This technology site will help the vehicle’s autonomous driving system to determine the location precisely alongside detecting obstacles or potentially critical situations. Developed in association with CUbE, the technology suite will allow the EZ10 to generate a 360-degree image of its surroundings.

The technology suite will ensue redundance and a higher level of accuracy as radar systems function independent of visibility conditions and can even see through objects like parked vehicles, Continental has claimed in a release.Besides this radar sensor technology, Continental also offers MK C1 one-box brake system that has been in series production since 2016. This system combines ABS, ESC and a brake booster. In an autonomous vehicle, the one-box bake system can be combined with hydraulic brake extension.

Continental has joined hands with EasyMile, Oakland University, the City of Auburn Hills in Michigan to start a pilot project using autonomous vehicles that will test the technology ahead of mass market use.
