      "Ever-faster processing power and integrated vehicle software: They form the central nervous system of the mobility of the future"

      Software

      (July 2021) Revolution on wheels: While car engines had to be cranked before, the push of a button suffices today. And people who perhaps still use maps on the passenger seat are certainly no longer up-to-date, and are endangering themselves and others due to distraction. Digital technology has long become commonplace in many areas of life and work – and, of course, also in mobility. On the roads and behind the wheel, highly intelligent computers with specialized software are increasingly taking over tasks that make driving easier, increase comfort and improve safety.

      CTO Gilles Mabire:

      “At Continental, we are pursuing the goal of further increasing traffic and data safety with pioneering software solutions. One example of this is our Continental Automotive Edge Framework (CAEdge). It shows how software and a powerful IT infrastructure enable new functions and positively change mobility.

      CAEdge as a modular hardware and software platform connects the vehicle with the cloud. In the background, it involves providing development tools for future software, sensor systems and big-data solutions that will greatly accelerate developments for volume production. Drivers benefit directly from this, as the vehicle downloads software updates quickly and conveniently and integrates the desired functions throughout its entire service life.”
