Railway Solutions

for improved safety and efficiency

During the last years, the railway industry has become a platform for innovative people and goods transportation. Automotive technology helps to make this development safe and sustainable.

Why Railway Solutions

Automotive technology is robust, reliable, and proven, making it ideal for adapting for railway solutions. The primary goal of this technology is to reduce the likelihood of dangerous misinterpretations of situations in the environment by the driver, as well as to reduce the complexity of the workplace.
Continental Engineering Services (CES) is committed to reducing both the risk of human error on the railway network and the stress of human drivers. With their advanced railway solutions, passengers can travel with peace of mind knowing that their safety is being taken seriously.
We are the ideal choice for those looking for reliable and innovative railway solutions. With the help of our advanced automotive technologies, passengers can trust that their safety and security are the top priority.

Automotive Assistance Functions

Continental Engineering Services offers integrated automotive assistance functions for railway vehicles, such as Forward Collision Warning, Side Collision Warning, Head Up Display, and Driver Monitoring. These functions are designed to help drivers identify potential dangers and react quickly, reducing the risk of accidents and collisions.
Additionally, these features also help improve efficiency by helping drivers better control the environmental challenges of the train. This support is urgently needed as the working environment of a train driver is becoming increasingly complex and multifaceted. our solutions can be implemented both as individual functions and in a system network to relieve the driver holistically.

Monitoring of Level Crossings and Stations

Level crossings and platforms are a major source of fatalities and collisions on the railways, but with the right monitoring system in place, railway operators can significantly reduce the risk of such incidents.
Continental Engineering Services provides multiple technologies to monitor and control level crossings as well as platforms, which includes a combination of sensors like cameras and radars just like the Digital Safety Assist which uses movement data from an app to give other road users early warning of an approaching train. This system enables operators to detect obstacles on the tracks and stop approaching trains before a critical situation before a critical situation arises.

Revolutionizing Mobility Solutions

Head-up displays for greater safety when driving trams

Continental’s innovative solution for improving tramway operations: head-up displays (HUDs) optimized for trams. Tram drivers face numerous challenges in dense public traffic, but HUDs act as an information filter, focusing the driver’s attention on the essentials and keeping their eyes on the road. Continental’s HUDs for trams provide selected and important information in a pre-selected manner, improving road safety and reducing the workload of driving personnel. Learn more about how Continental’s HUD technology can help enhance your tramway operations today.
