Continental 2-Wheeler Technologies on Display at TechDrive
Blind Spot Detection (BSD) – This feature detects and monitors blind spots on behalf of the the rider through a radar sensor. The system offers visual warnings to the rider in case of an approaching vehicle oblivious to the rider. In fact, the system can even indicate hazardous lane changes through the Lane Change Assist (LCA) feature.
Optimized Curve Braking (OCB) – This feature enables effective application of the brakes in curves or turns where there is a high chance of mishaps due to wheel lock up. In this system, the motorcycle’s ABS first notes the angled position of the vehicle through lean angle information from the Continental sensor box and based on the incline, the braking system control becomes highly sensitive to prevent wheel lock.
Digital Service Platform – The platform offers various digital services to help the consumers with a seamless experience, be it a private user, shared mobility user, fleet operator or logistics operator. The services on offer on this platform include Key as a Service, live tracking, geo fencing, User Registration & Management, B2B Interface, Smart Booking, and Trip History, among others.
