      When People Talk about “Mobility of the Future,” They Mean Continental

      Dr. Elmar Degenhart:

      We are the architects of an ecosystem of safe, clean and intelligent mobility. We are, after all, already supplying what others are still testing.

      More than half of new vehicles around the world are connected. With more than 20 years of experience, over 33 million connected vehicles, and the acquisition of Kathrein Automotive, Continental now offers the entire chain of connectivity functions: from the antenna to the display. From the safety software to the electronic control unit.

      Thanks to Continental’s fifth-generation mobile communications technology, the vehicles of tomorrow will have up to 10 gigabits of bandwidth, making it possible to transmit data thirty times faster than is possible today with LTE, the mobile communications standard of the fourth generation. The reaction time in the network – the latency – will also be improved substantially. With 5G, it will be a mere one millisecond in the end. In comparison with humans, the time between the eye and brain is about ten milliseconds. So with 5G, data exchange in real time will be possible. This short reaction time in the network is particularly helpful when vehicles want to warn each other or other road users of potentially hazardous situations. We have already received a volume order for a 5G connectivity solution like this.

      Autonomous driving, electric mobility and connectivity: We are the architects of an ecosystem of safe, clean and intelligent mobility. We are, after all, already supplying what others are still testing. Our solutions, components and systems are already providing better safety, efficiency and comfort in four out of five cars worldwide.
