      In 2000, he joined the Software Components and Workstations Business Unit, as head of engineering. 2004 he relocated to Mountain View, California, to become the head of engineering for the Ultrasound Business Unit.

      After his return from the US in 2006, Dr. Rabe moved to the Automotive Division of Siemens, to become the head of engineering for the Multimedia Business Unit in Wetzlar, Germany.

      The Instrumentation & Driver HMI business unit works on the best ways of processing, prioritizing and presenting information. With holistic solutions to the human-machine interface, Continental ensures that drivers intuitively receive the exact information they need to know whilst driving.

      In order to avoid driver distraction the prioritization of information on different displays, depending on vehicle and driving situation, is one of the key focuses of Continental.

      Beyond that innovative user interfaces for intuitive control of different functions are developed; this includes components as well as fully integrated systems and complete cockpit modules for all vehicle types and use cases.
