Continental is developing solutions for driverless vehicles in urban areas.
Contributing to modern mobility, robo-taxis provide a solution for congestion, accidents, contaminated air and parking problems in cities.
In the future, Continental will test and research driverless passenger transportation at its Frankfurt location with the CUbE (Continental Urban mobility Experience) demo vehicle.
Continental has built a demo vehicle to enable driverless mobility, especially in cities. The vehicle, named CUbE (Continental Urban mobility Experience) will start its trials at Continental’s Frankfurt location, which contains a typical city infrastructure such as street signs, cross-traffic, pedestrian crossings and curbs, providing optimum conditions for a complex and therefore realistic route.
Many aspects of the technology used in the vehicle are based on the driver assistance systems and sensors that are already installed in today’s serial production vehicles, but new technologies are also used, such as the laser sensor.
Based on this expertise, these systems will be further developed to control the vehicle completely autonomously.
