Continental's Perspecitve on the Future of Mobility

Summary:

Future of Mobility, and the road to Automated Driving that Continental is on.  A road that leads to Seamless Mobility for Everyone, and Vision Zero - our vision of a world with zero accidents, injuries or fatalities due to vehicle transportation.  A road that begins with Advanced Driver Assistance System technologies as a solid foundation for new Automated solutions.  A road that takes two paths… something which we call the new duality before merging again in the fully automated ecosystem of the future.
