Continental And HERE Team Up To Map Out The Future Of Vehicle Connectivity

Companies partner for joint development of the next generation of electronic horizon, automated driving and new intelligent transportation systems based on high-precision map technology.

 

DETROIT – International automotive supplier Continental and HERE, a Nokia business and a leader in mapping and location services, announced at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit that their teams will intensify their collaboration in bringing the connected car to life, focusing on electronic horizon, future automated driving functionalities and intelligent transportation systems (ITS).

The partnership will begin with the development of highly precise map technology for Continental’s Electronic Horizon platform that will enable a vehicle to continuously determine its position on the road to within 10 to 20 centimeters (3 to 8 inches). The maps will include a range of road information, including lane markings and connectivity, speed limit changes, no passing signs and more. Using this information, all types of vehicles will be able to comfortably react to shifting circumstances, such as changing speed limits, automatically. The technology will enable enhanced anticipatory driving, leading to improvement for drivers in the areas of comfort, efficiency and safety, the two companies say.

Continental aims to provide a complete end-to-end connected electronic horizon solution based on HERE data and cloud services to vehicle manufacturers worldwide. The solution also will be the basis for highly automated driving functionality that Continental targets to have in vehicles rolling off assembly lines by 2020. With more than 26 million telematics units produced worldwide, Continental says it is already providing the necessary systems for connected vehicles.
