Continental has issued an official statement saying it has developed a new sensor module for integrated multi-function camera lidar (MFL), a new sensor that is expected to be mass production this year. The mainland has developed a series of sensor products, including front / 360 degree panoramic camera Sensor and radar / laser radar sensor, and the development of new radar sensors will also join the camp.

  In addition, the mainland has signed a cooperation agreement with Toyota Motor Group, its new radar sensor will be used for the latter's compact car equipped with active safety system package 'Toyota Safety Sense C'. Christoph Hagedorn, president of Continental Group Japan, said the 'Toyota Safety Sense C' package includes three pre-crash safety systems (PCS), lane departure warning system (LDA) and adaptive high beam control system (AHB) Security technology, the above technology Suction Control Valve will help to achieve safe driving and reduce traffic accidents.

  In the multi-function camera lidar, the mainland engineers used two innovative sensor technology. Combined with the camera and infrared laser radar (light detection and distance sensor), the new sensor module can detect the vehicle in front of obstacles in the event of a collision, it will be through the sound or video to the driver to warn, Driver brakes. If the driver does not take the brakes, the system will automatically brake.

  Therefore, when the speed reaches 80 km / h, or the relative speed of the vehicle and the detected obstacle is less than 50 km / h, the collision accident can be avoided. Even if the speed difference is large, the emergency braking system can still play an important role in reducing Pressure Sensor the impact caused by the impact.

  The CMOS (complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor) camera sensor has been used to identify the vehicle's front obstructions, however, the CMOS camera itself does not always provide sufficient reliable information for starting the automatic emergency braking system (AEB). The continental laser radar sensor can emit three pulsed infrared beams with a wavelength ABS Sensor of 905 nanometers. Once the reflected beam reaches the receiving optics, it begins to measure the time-of-flight.

  Continental Lidar sensor monitoring range can reach about 10 meters in front of the vehicle, basically with the short-range radar system quite. According to the measured speed of light and transit time can be speculated that multi-function camera lidar to calculate the distance to the accuracy of the obstacle can reach 10 cm. With the CMOS camera to work together, the mainland LIDAR sensor module will be able to provide a more accurate and reliable method. Taking into Speed Sensor account the stringent requirements of compact cars in the cost, multi-function camera lidar sensor module is scalable is essential. The versatile camera's lidar's computational power can be automatically adjusted according  to different application scenarios and always provide reliable data to determine if it is necessary to start the automatic emergency braking system

  The continent also emphasizes that fatigue, distraction or inattention is the main cause of traffic accidents, and the Driver Assistance System (ADAS) can, in some cases, reduce the chance of accidents, and it also Throttle Position Sensor helps the group to achieve Vision Zero vision , That is, zero accident to achieve the goal of zero casualties.
