Active- & Passive Safety for EU General Safety Regulation

The introduction of the EU-General Safety Regulation (GSR) for vehicle homologation will mark a new era of vehicle engineering throughout the entire industry. From that point onwards, all new vehicles for the EU-market will have to be equipped with a multitude of advanced safety features such as Emergency Brake Assist, Lane Support Systems and Driver Supervision.

While the General-Safety-Regulation itself describes all vehicle features required for vehicle homologation over all technical domains, the majority of new features can be found in the active-& passive-safety domain.

At CES, we have developed a cost-efficient standard solution for GSR compliance based on Continental sensors and functions. In a turnkey project approach, we make your vehicle ready for homologation.

System Overview – Active & Passive Safety Packages

Our solution is based on four pillars:

  • Front Safety Package
  • Rear Safety Package
  • Passive Safety Package
  • Driver Status Package

A key advantage of the system is the scalability with the components involved. Without any modifications to the system architecture:

  • Additional comfort functions can be implemented such as ACC, Head-Light-Assist, …
  • Future GSR requirements can be covered
  • A solid base for oncoming safety regulations in other worldwide regions is established

To understand what the driver exactly needs is crucial to offer a real Holistic Human-Machine Interface experience. Therefore our systems gather the current condition of drivers. Our technology enables gaze target recognition, face recognition or drowsiness classification as well as the thermal comfort. That will be a base for a natural interaction and joy of use.
