Continental is set to showcase a number of innovative tyre products focused on enriching and expanding mobility at the Las Vegas Convention Center during CES 2018, January 9-12
“Mobility is changing the way people live, work and interact with vehicles,” said Dr. Elmar Degenhart, CEO of Continental. “Through strategic inventiveness and partnerships in the fields of automation, electrification and connectivity, we will continue to pioneer safe, clean, connected and affordable solutions that meet the needs of our customers and the end-user. At CES, our latest technologies will be on display so attendees can experience first-hand how Continental is moving mobility forward.”
Enhancing vehicle use through inventive tyre solutions
Tyre concepts called ContiSense and ContiAdapt will be shown in the U.S. for the first time during CES. Using tyre sensors to measure tread depth and temperature, ContiSense alerts drivers to tyre damage through data transmission and electrically conductive rubber.
ContiAdapt adjusts tyre pressure and rim width to adapt to wet, uneven, slippery and normal road conditions. Continental considers both tyre technology concepts promising solutions for the mobility of the future as tyres are adapted to meet the needs of automated driving and electrification.
The new technologies make for even greater road safety and comfort in the future.
