Continental has developed a new version of the software eHorizon, which significantly improves the efficiency of cars
On the next in Las Vegas Electronics Show Sonsumer Electronics Show, Continental introduced a new “dynamic” version of the software eHorizon. It was developed in partnership with IBM and allows you to adjust the engine and transmission, depending on the road conditions, which saves fuel.
The new version of Dynamic eHorizon estimates in real time, not only the topography of the area, but also the weather conditions, “plug”, working traffic lights, road works, and many other factors. To improve the accuracy of GPS measurements is through a shared server from a variety of vehicles equipped with this software.
