Cameras, radar sensors and lidars keep an eye on the area around the vehicle. The next generation of the one-box brake-by-wire brake system, the MK C2, builds up the required brake pressure three times faster than the previous systems and can therefore react quickly and safely to different driving situations.
For Continental, it also provides the basis for future brake systems. The lightweight “Green” Brake Caliper offers high braking performance with lower weight and significantly reduced residual brake torque – with the potential to save up to two grams of CO2 per vehicle. If an accident is unavoidable, the intelligent airbag control ensures that the airbag is deployed according to the occupants and the impact.
