      MK C2

      The MK C2 is Continental’s second-generation brake-by-wire system and will enter series production in 2022.

      • Reduction of 5g of CO2 per KM according to WLTP testing, when compared to a conventional system
      • Innovative architecture supports use of true zero-drag calipers, further decreasing emissions
      • 100% efficient regenerative braking system
      • Multi-logic architecture supports parking-pawl removal for EV and Valet parking
      • Simplified design allows reduction in size, weight, and number of components compared to MK C1
      • Significantly faster buildup of autonomous braking pressure than conventional hydraulic systems
      • Reduced logistics and installation effort during car production

      MOTION CONTROL

      Motion Control is a key element in assisted and autonomous driving functions. It transforms the driving plan into lateral and longitudinal actuator commands.

      • Support of motion requests on trajectory level or on vehicle dynamics level for assisted/autonomous driving functions
      • Control the vehicle motion in lateral and longitudinal direction
      • Enhanced interaction with agility and stability functions for improved safety and performance
      • Decoupling of functions layer from actuators layer by providing a lean and coherent interface
      • Handling of driver interaction and shaping the driving experience
      • Allocation of control commands to different actuators - like brake, powertrain, steering - taking into consideration their performance capabilities and limitations
      • Flexible and modular with respect to different actuator interfaces
      • Scalable and multi-platform portable AUTOSAR software components
      • Easily applicable through model-based control
