From cars to traffic lights: Sensors and surveillance systems are set up to improve safety

Vehicle to Everything (V2X) is a vehicle communication system that supports the transfer of information from vehicle to moving parts of the transportation system that can affect the vehicle. The main purpose of V2X technology is to improve road safety, save energy and improve road traffic efficiency.

That’s why supplier giant Continental wants to extend its expertise in developing automotive sensors to infrastructure. According to data collected by Continental, more than 50% of all injury accidents occur at or near intersections. Despite years of best efforts to implement safer traffic practices, vehicle deaths in the United States have increased rather than decreased.

Ulrich Staehlin, head of Continental’s smart crossroads, emphasizes that Continental aims to reduce fatalities, crashes and injuries.— —I hope to achieve Vision Zero. “Now we have this goal of Vision Zero and we know how it works on the side of the car. Now let’s work on the side of the infrastructure,” he says. Automotive world..

As the line between transportation infrastructure and automotive development is blurred, Continental’s Safety Infrastructure Solutions (SIS) strategy focuses on Intelligent Traffic Management (ITMS) and Intelligent Vehicle Maneuvering (IVS) for safety and zero vision. The emphasis is on.
