- Technology company showcases fully connected refueling for increased comfort and convenience at CES Asia
- Fuel consumption decreases and safety increases thanks to digitization
Hanover/Shanghai, May 11, 2016. CES Asia 2016 will open its doors in Shanghai from May 11–13, offering a clear overview of the trends in consumer electronics. The technology company Continental is using CES Asia 2016 as an opportunity to give its customers an insight into the future possibilities offered by the digitization of mobility.
"The global automotive industry is moving towards digitalization and, meanwhile, digitalization is changing the world of the automotive industry – systems, software, and services will all play an increasingly important role. In the future, more focus will be concentrated on mobility services for people and goods," said Dr. Ralf Cramer, Member of the Executive Board of Continental AG and President and CEO of Continental China.
At the booth in Hall N3 Stand 3702, Continental is showcasing technologies such as electronically controlled incremental darkening of car windows, the next functional levels of the electronic horizon (eHorizon) for "seeing around corners", vehicle-to-vehicle communication, and the seamless integration of large-scale, curved displays in the cockpit of the cars of the future. Together, these examples of digitization ensure greater comfort, increased safety on the road, and reduced energy consumption.
Continental will be offering a glimpse into the holistic connectivity of future mobility with its "Holistic Connectivity" demo vehicle – jointly developed by engineers from China, Singapore, France, Germany, and the U.S.A. The demonstrated context-based services include the illustration of a “Gas and Service Station of the Future”: The Holistic Connectivity car will not only inform the driver when it needs to refill on gasoline, but will also communicate additional needs like replenishing oil or tire pressure. As part of a two-way communication, the gas station will be able to advertise special offers, for example discounts on a car wash, on the car’s head-unit display.
