Continental focuses on direct tire pressure monitoring systems

International automotive supplier Continental recommends car manufacturers worldwide the consistent use of direct measuring technology in their new car models to ensure that vehicle tires are always inflated to an optimum level. This recommendation is owed to steadily rising requirements to tire pressure measurement. It also reflects the significant potential of direct measuring technology, making it possible to exploit the greater contribution to CO2 reduction.

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.
