Holistic Connectivity enables new functions and services in the car and beyond. It integrates mobile and non-mobile living spaces.

The digitization of mobility is in full swing and makes driving more efficient, safer and more comfortable. In the beginning, “digitization in the car” was called the connection of smart devices and the introduction of online services through various apps in the car. In the meantime, the boundaries between mobile and immovable living spaces are blurring due to the ever increasing networking of all components. Individual settings, profiles and thousands of other information are transferred to the vehicle in a split second.

The slowly increasing digitization and networking enables the use of new data sources for intelligent management of personal and commercial traffic on roads. Vehicles in front can immediately pass on information about critical traffic situations before they lead to a dangerous situation for subsequent drivers. Infrastructure data is used for more security and convenience

In summary, we can say that holistic connectivity connects vehicles in a variety of ways: drivers, other vehicles, mobile devices, the Internet and the infrastructure are a system that consists of interconnected hardware and software components and thus enables an infinite number of new services.

The above image illustrates how many devices interact both inside and outside of a vehicle in order to provide a holistic connectivity.

Continental Engineering Services is not only able to develop and provide the individual components and services as illustrated, but can act as your consultant as you create your own connectivity architecture or big data application. Benefit from our technical expertise, our experience in the field of software development, embedded systems, client-server structures, cloud applications and IT security.

With the rising level of connectivity and an increasing number of interfaces in vehicles and machines, cyber security is becoming more and more important. This is why we use the highest security standards in our connectivity solutions here at Continental Engineering Services, which fulfil the upcoming standards and regulations and go beyond.

Our connectivity products facilitate, control and optimize this complex information flow at the interface between humans, machines and the Internet of Things. We achieve this through ultra-modern transmission technologies, which are particularly suitable for the safety-relevant applications of automated driving thanks to their strong performance. In addition to lower latency, a larger range and increased reliability, they also facilitate the connection to cloud services.
