Connectivity, Data and Computing

5G Next Generation Connectivity: Leveraging our strong expertise in telematics, antenna development and systems integration, Continental delivers tailored 5G solutions to pave the way towards a seamlessly connected future mobility.

Personalized & Connected UX with Elektrobit: Connecting the car to the user through multimodal interfaces (e.g. touch, handwriting and voice), created with EB GUIDE, an end-to-end HMI development toolchain. EB software also connects the car to the cloud for consumer content updates, critical safety and security enhancements, OEM vehicle diagnostic data gathering, and more.

Zonar Commercial Over-The-Air Programming: Allows commercial vehicle component software updates to be authorized and executed wirelessly via smartphone – without an in-vehicle HMI device – at the driver’s convenience, saving hours of downtime, service programming fees and maintenance costs.

Continental Cooperation Portal: To enable qualified OEM and 3rd party software transfers into vehicle high performance computers, we've developed a secure web application that pre-validates & pre-integrates software.

Connected ECU Protection: Argus solutions provide various methods to effectively protect infotainment units against cyber-attacks.

Data Monetization: Blockchain-based platform enabling direct data sharing and monetization across companies and industries in a distributed network, without the need of a central middle man. Data can be monetized via the distributed marketplace to establish new revenue streams from data and enable high quality services.
