by Autocar Pro News Desk , 28 Jul 2015

Continental will showcase the cockpit of the future in a photorealistic 3D cinema at its stand in Hall 5.1, Booth A07, at IAA 2015.

Global technology corporation Continental is to have an innovation-packed display at the upcoming International Motor Show (IAA) 2015 show (Hall 5.1, Booth A07, from September 17 to 27).

"Three out of every four cars in the world are more environmentally friendly and safer, easier and more comfortable to drive thanks to the solutions, products, and systems from Continental. At the IAA, we will be showing innovations that will soon be seen on the road. In doing so, we will again show how completely connected Continental is for such innovations in its capacity as a technology company," says Dr Elmar Degenhart, chairman of the Continental Executive Board.

Among other things, the company will be displaying its new generation of tyres, hybrid drive systems for all vehicle classes, improved brake systems, ever-more advanced driver assistance systems, lightweight products, and components that make operating a car easy.

At the booth, visitors will also get a chance to see components that will appear in production cars soon and those that are in the final stage of development. Furthermore, the systems exhibited will show visitors how the vehicles of the future will assist drivers. A photo-realistic 3D cinema will give visitors a chance to sit in a virtual cockpit of the future. They will then experience how holistic dialog between vehicle and driver as well as the connectivity of the vehicle make driving safer, easier, more convenient, and more efficient. Examples from the development roadmap for automated driving will show the convenience and efficiency gains that can be made in the cars of the future.

World premiere: The new ultra-high-performance SportContact 6 summer tyre provides maximum grip, maximum control, and maximum stability at very high speeds of up to 350kph.

Lightweight design: ContiTech in particular will show how lightweight components help to make vehicles lighter and in doing lower CO2 emissions. One example is the award-winning transmission crossbeam made from glass-fibre-reinforced polyamide.

Hybrid drive systems for everyone: Networked energy management, 48 volt hybrid drive systems, and turbocharger technologies make driving more efficient and even more fun.

SensePlanAct: Under the slogan SensePlanAct, Continental will display active and passive safety technologies and products that support driving dynamics.

Highly accurate and always up to date: Continental will show how the cloud makes driving more efficient, safer, and easier, and how the cloud will become part of assisted and automated driving. (eHorizon).

Driver assistance systems at New Mobility World

As part of the special ‘New Mobility World’ exhibition, IAA visitors will also be able to find out first-hand about state-of-the-art advanced driver assistance systems. Furthermore, in the outdoor area, they will be able to experience assistance systems for traffic jams or parking, emergency braking and vehicle-to-X scenarios. Continental will also in Hall 3.1 hold expert lectures on automated driving, electric mobility in practice, mobility services, and connected vehicles.
