Legal Regulations and NCAP

In the early 2010s, EuroNCAP has shifted attention to crash avoidance and Active-Safety features. Already in 2020, reaching a 5-star rating, which is still the main development target for most ÓEMs, is only possible with a multitude of ADAS sensors and Active Safety features. All NCAP institutions worldwide are following this scheme.

Furthermore, with the introduction of the EU-General-Safety-Regulation (GSR) in 2022, all new vehicles homologated in the EU will have to be equipped with Advanced Safety Features such as Emergency Brake Assist or Lane Support Systems.

ADAS features are increasingly receiving more attention concerning homologation requirements (GSR, NHTSA, C-NCAP, ASEAN-NCAP, and others).

All this results in a severe increase in technical complexity and development effort on the OEM-side.
Continental Engineering Service is your partner for development right from the beginning by finding the right technical concept for your vehicle – and is on your side with all required features, sensors, and services required to pass legislation and NCAP requirements.

Interior Camera

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.
