Safe, Convenient, Award-Winning: Continental Receives CES 2019 Innovation Award for Intelligent Door System
 
  • High level of convenience: Passive Start and Entry system (PASE) and power door control support autonomous opening and closing 
  • Greater safety: Intelligent obstacle detection prevents collisions
  • Optimal protection: Intelligent door brake system supports opening and closing operations, while stopping uncontrolled slamming
Dubai, UAE, December 16, 2018:  Continental, the premium German tyre and technology company, has been recognised for its intelligent door system as a CES 2019 Innovation Award honouree in the Vehicle Intelligence and Self-Driving Technology category. The CES organiser CTA (Consumer Technology Association) announced the honourees during its annual CES Unveiled New York event, a tech event that offers a sneak peek of the products and trends expected at the upcoming CES 2019.
 
Boast to be the global stage for innovation, CES 2019 will showcase Continental’s state-of-the-art technologies such as the intelligent door brake system and the smart autonomous door. Supporting convenient opening and closing operations, while stopping vehicle doors from uncontrolled slamming, the intelligent door system features obstacle detection functions that lead to high levels of safety in road traffic scenarios and prevent dents and paint scratches.
 
The smart autonomous door system is also a necessary function for automated driving to deal with different practical situations and allow passengers to get in and out conveniently. It supports autonomous opening and closing of vehicle doors and protects passengers from crushed fingers, hands or belongings with its anti-pinch protection. 
 
“The CES Innovation Award is both a confirmation and an incentive for our developer team. Ultimately, we want to keep increasing convenience and safety for drivers and all other road users with our solutions. By means of its connection with our passive start and entry system (PASE), the vehicle doors open automatically and contact-free at the right time. They also recognise the respective user and open on the right side,” said Johann Hiebl, Head of Continental Body & Security business unit.
 
The smart autonomous door is in continuous communication with the integrated static obstacle detection. If the sensors identify a stationary obstacle, then the intelligent door automatically stops the opening process. In assistant mode, the system makes the door easier to operate by reducing the amount of physical effort required and allowing for any opening angle. This significantly increases convenience when the vehicle is on a slope as the door no longer slams shut and can be opened or closed in an uphill position by the assistant function.
 
Optional functions such as adjustable door speed, slam protection and end position damping can further increase convenience and relieve pressure on the door and chassis mechanisms.
 
An added bonus is the continuously variable gap angle. The intelligent door supports smooth opening in any position without snapping into place at all. Despite this, the door can be stopped securely in any position desired by the intelligent control system. Using static obstacle detection, this system also immediately stops the process of opening the vehicle door if an obstacle is identified. As a result, the intelligent brake function reliably prevents a potential collision.
 
Hiebl emphasised, “It is the combination of our know-how in the field of system integration and intelligent door control with our partners’ mechanical components that makes the intelligent vehicle door possible.”
 
Continental’s innovative technologies will be presented at CES 2019. The world's gathering platform for the consumer technologies industry will also showcase more than 4,500 exhibiting companies, including manufacturers, developers and suppliers of consumer technology hardware, content, technology delivery systems and more; a conference program with more than 250 conference sessions and more than 180K attendees from 150 countries.
