VIDEO: Building Blocks on the Road to Automated Driving

An automated car needs to manage many tasks. For example, it needs to know exactly where it is, what the road in front of it looks like, which traffic lights are relevant for the lane it is in, and what color they are at that moment. Continental is forging ahead with the development of automated driving by developing solutions for tasks such as these three examples through individual projects.
