Continental pushes new radar sensor | Improves driving assistance to prevent rear collision accidents

According to foreign media reports, adhering to the vision of 'accident casualties', Continental has played a pioneering role in this goal, hoping to become the first emergency brake assist system supplier to be introduced to motorcycles. The radar-based system is the mainland. Part of the advanced driver assistance system will be on display at the EICMA exhibition in Milan, Italy. The new fifth-generation radar sensor in the mainland enhances the object detection function and provides a high-performance emergency brake assist system. Years of experience in car and commercial vehicle safety systems are used in the development of motorcycle safety systems. But slightly different, when the collision is about to happen, the passenger car will automatically brake urgently, but the motorcycle system is more cautious. The way to brake. According to the mainland traffic accident study, in the near future, even in the cross-over or oncoming traffic situation, emergency braking can be used to prevent a large number of rear collision accidents.

The emergency brake assist system uses a radar sensor to monitor the area in front of the motorcycle. If the motorcycle is at risk of colliding with the vehicle in front or any other obstacle, the rider can be alerted by visual, audible or tactile warnings (such as the vibration of the handlebar). Then, there will be low brake pressure to assist the rider in active braking. If the rider does not respond to the warning, the emergency brake assist system will automatically increase the braking force - as long as the rider puts his hands in the car On the handle, but the slowdown is not as obvious as the passenger car emergency brake system.

The fifth generation of sensors on the mainland is more accurate and powerful, and will enter mass production in 2019. This sensor object detection algorithm can be improved to detect smaller objects such as exhaust gas. In addition, the height of the object can be calculated by measuring the energy of the elevation, which also means The sensor can more accurately detect the tail of the traffic jam under the bridge or road boundary. Considering the limited installation space of the motorcycle, another advantage of the radar system is that it is more compact.

Radar sensors are not only the core components of emergency brake assist systems, but in many modern motorcycles, they are also required to put auxiliary functions into practice.

Another ARASTM feature for use with forward-facing remote radars is intelligent adaptive cruise. The system automatically adjusts the speed of the motorcycle, even if the motorcycle is slightly tilted - making it compatible with the speed of the vehicle ahead, thus always ensuring a safe distance. The adaptive endurance control ensures easy driving and reduces the pressure on the rider when the highway is busy.

Other ARASTM features provided by the mainland for two-wheelers include blind spot detection, traffic sign assistance and intelligent headlight auxiliary functions. Blind spot detection monitors the rear area of ​​the motorcycle through short-range radar sensors and warns the driver at the blind spot to prevent him or her Intended to change lanes. Traffic signs assist the use of cameras to record speed limits, overtaking restrictions and one-way entry restrictions and provide instructions to the rider. Intelligent headlight accessibility can detect the lights of vehicles ahead and oncoming vehicles, and Switch the high beam headlights to ensure optimum road lighting. In addition, if there is a collision risk, the front collision warning will warn the driver, but unlike the emergency brake assist, it does not include the emergency braking function. With its modular structure of all systems, the mainland can provide solutions tailored to different markets, different trading rules and different laws and regulations.
