Continental enhances Electric Vehicle Safety

Continental has developed a sensor for electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles which will immediately shut off the high-voltage battery in the event of a collision while the vehicle is in charge mode. This means that emergency service personnel can recover vehicles without running the risk of suffering an electric shock.

Continental's Sensor Box Provides Added Stability for Motorcycles

Continental has developed a sensor box for motorcycles that measures the vehicle's tilt angle by evaluating a wide range of driving data. This system makes it possible to intervene via the engine management system or the brakes to stabilize the motorcycle's driving dynamics. This intervention – which the driver hardly notices – will significantly improve directional stability and road holding and increase road safety. Customers buying high-end or sports motorcycles, in particular, attach great importance to owning a motorcycle that they can control. Apart from improving safety, the traction control system optimizes acceleration performance. Using this safety system makes motorcycling a more pleasurable experience, explained Thomas Greb, business team head of motorcycle sensoric systems in the Sensorics business unit of Continental's Chassis & Safety division.
