Continental Introduces Affordable ADAS Solutions – Rear-View Systems (RVS231)

Continental’s Technical Center India (TCI) has developed affordable ADAS solutions - radar sensor and Rear-View Systems (RVS231) for enhancing the safety quotient of vehicles.

The radar sensors can be fitted in front or rear of the car depending on the usage and functionality. It can act as flashing lights alerting a suspected danger or enhance driving comfort through cruise control function, especially during long journeys. The radar sensor is specifically designed to suit road conditions in India through a detailed study of the traffic patterns, available infrastructural facilities and the Indian road limitations. The perception algorithms are developed to overcome unpredictable traffic conditions and inconsistent driver behaviour.

Jaidev Venkataraman, Head of Engineering – Sensorics, Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), Continental Automotive India, explains, “This radar sensor is a perfect example of value engineering without compromising on functionality. With this affordable radar sensor, we are re-emphasising the message that safety is for all and not simply an add-on premium feature. The radar is built with robust hardware and state-of-the-art software, making it the best in class thus far. Our engineering team in India is working on many such cutting-edge ADAS technologies for both developed, as well as emerging markets. These radars-based solutions also give a sense of innovation in autonomous driving to the Indian market, which has not been seen before in terms of the ease with which they can be incorporated in the present traffic conditions and available infrastructure.”

The radar technology incorporates intelligent Level 1 driver assistance functions such as adaptive cruise control, emergency brake assist, traffic jam assist, blind-spot detection, lane change assist and rear cross-traffic alert, among others.

The revolutionary product complies with the European NCAP1, NCAP2, NHTSA, and IIHS safety standards. (TT)
