Electronics from Continental prevents accidents on parkings and cuts down expenses


Within the global concept of Vizion Zero designed to reach gradually zero accident rate on public roads the Continental company pays not the first year special attention to the organization of city parking space. As have shown researches, on these, it would seem insignificant, sites questions of accident rate, ecology, economy and the social sphere very often acquire special relevance, the press service of the Russian office of the German concern reports.

B only of one law-abiding Germany at rather low level of conscious violations of traffic regulations annually occurs up to 2 million insignificant collisions during the parking, and it is about a half from similar incidents in the country. As the statistics shows, entrance on the parking space isn't a big problem for drivers, only 16 percent from all cases are the share of him. Other 84 percent of collisions happen at departure from the parking, especially at the movement by a backing when visibility in close space is strongly limited. Here motion sensors in invisible zones can provide substantial assistance.

the Continental Company successfully introduces several years the system of the help at departure from the parking a backing of RCTA (Rear Cross Traffic Alert) in which the same short-wave sensors, as are involved in the company BSD system which when changing a lane helps to find transport, imperceptible in rearview mirrors. Each RCTA sensor under review up to 120 degrees is capable to find the objects moving with a speed from 5 to 30 km/h at distance to 35 m

Similar systems are especially useful to drivers with insufficient experience who aren't always capable to define quickly whether there is enough place for the safe parking of the car. As practice has shown, to electronics in power to prevent up to 25 percent of collisions on the parking. Reduction of similar incidents at least on a quarter, in turn, allows to cut expenses of insurance companies on a covering of losses approximately for 20 percent.

Further development of electronic security systems from Continental is development of Back-up Assist which helps to avoid collisions at the movement by a backing on roads in general and on parkings in particular. Here several wide-angle cameras with a viewing angle of everyone to 180 degrees are used, in total they give the full circular review. It is planned that the system will be able not only to fix objects on the way of the car, but also to distinguish them, for example, to distinguish pedestrians and cyclists. Integration of cameras of the review with the system of automatic braking will help to reduce dependence on a human factor and it is essential to reduce danger of collisions.

Other serious problem remain material and temporary expenditure for search of the parking space. For example, in the USA where the level of automobilization is traditionally high, in a year only on search of the parking a scoop
