Continental Engineering Services (CES) offers a service portfolio that encompasses the entire development cycle, including all processes and products including, consulting, conception, development, test & simulation, product supply, and integration.
As a competent engineering partner, CES will meet demands, develop stable solutions, and implement those solutions as marketable products. By combining our engineering teams, with our longstanding knowledge and experience in a variety of sectors and industries, CES creates the basis for collaboration throughout the complete processes and product development cycles.
With expertise in the areas of ADAS, Brakes & Chassis Controls, Interior Electronic Functions, Driveline & Electrification, and Product Solutions, we support our customers globally. Our focus is not only on the automotive industry but also on all market areas in which our developments and high-end products, adapted to customer requirements, can be used. These include mining, powersports, logistics, marine, and rail transport.
Consulting & Support
CES offers increased expertise, versatile application know-how and access to the Continental core competencies, including development and production-specific content. Through workshops or individual support, customers can benefit from the diversity and quality of our consulting services. By undertaking development and manufacturing holistically, we understand the special importance of the interface between the two areas. This is a result of many years of engineering experience.
Our concept development helps you to check all ideas for feasibility and efficient solutions. In addition, we give you recommendations to define these ideas more precisely, which developments are possible or already exist, what the market for corresponding solutions looks like and how the effectiveness of the solution can be optimized if necessary.
Requirements engineering deals with discovering, eliciting, developing, analyzing, verifying, validating, communicating, documenting and managing requirements. CES requirements engineers are specialists in mediating between the domains of customers, developers or suppliers to establish and maintain the requirements to be met by the system, function, software or hardware of interest.
With our long-term expertise in the areas of Software, Hardware, and Mechanical Engineering, we develop and realize concepts tailored to your needs. We optimize existing concepts, further develop systems, and adapt all components to “more than just meet” the expectations of you and your customers.
Systems Engineering is an interdisciplinary approach to develop systems which are mostly complex. For CES this means the transformation of idea into vehicles. CES Systems Engineering provides engineering services, training and consulting for the innovation, concept and product development phases of a vehicle development focusing vehicle and vehicle system level.
Test & Simulations
In order to enable all necessary test scenarios of a modern development process in an efficient way, we have been staking on virtual environment tests in addition to our work in modern stationary test and test facilities and real test drives for many years.
This allows almost real conditions to be simulated as often as desired without interference with any parameter. Early verification and validation of algorithms, components and architectures minimizes, for example, the number of accidents initiated for testing purposes. It also enables thousands of virtual tests to be completed within the budget and time frame that is normally expected for real-world testing.
For automated driving functions, 360° sensor coverage and central data fusion becomes inevitable. We offer a modular, off-the-shelf prototype solution for your development activities. A set of different hardware and software modules fit the kit for your individual application.
We offer a wide range of simulation services for driveline solutions always with the aim for efficiency, performance and innovation, allowing at the same time a reduction on development time and costs. This includes simulations on component, system and vehicle level.
Manufacturing & Small Series
By representing the complete value chain, can deal with challenging projects in an efficient and flexible manner and to the highest quality level. From simple mechanical components and highly complex control devices in small series production, we combine the talent for mechanical, electronic and production engineering from a single source, production depth accounts for up to 100%.
Our technology pool includes advanced technologies, such as additive manufacturing, based on bionic constructions, electronics manufacturing, such as SMD assembly, and classical mechanics such as bending or punching technology. We select the most suitable production technologies and have the capabiltiy to combine them if required.
The application of electronics, sensor technology and software is signficantly increasing. Extending the diversity of vehicle functions, increasing the efficiency of drives and designing instrumentation or displays clearly for example to enable an efficient, safe and reliable functionality. Connected systems and components are offered within our service portfolio that encompasses E-E-architecture, vehicle integration, software integration, calibration and validation and approval. With this support our comprehensive service portfolio, can accompany you and your individual demands throughout your full product development cycles and integration of various systems.
Continental Engineering Services combines Software with Hardware, Components to Systems to integrate everything into an overall vehicle concept. Our main focus is the combination of mechanical, electrical, and software requirements to realize the best functionality as well as the most efficient and powerful vehicle system.
