Continental AG and DIAS signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) on 23 Nov’20 for the strategic cooperation on core technologies related to intelligent cars, the German auto supplier announced via its WeChat account.
Under the MoU, both parties will jointly work to advance the application of 2-BOX braking system by leveraging their advantageous technologies, businesses, and resources.
The 2-BOX braking system consists of ESC (electronic stability control) and CBS (combined braking system). It is the core part of the execution system, one of three major units constituting the intelligent driving system—the other two are for perception and decision-making.
Two companies will co-develop 2-BOX-enabled smart braking solution using Continental AG’s ESC product and the CBS offered by Tsingdu Automotive Tech, a subsidiary of DIAS.
Focusing on automotive intelligence area, DIAS is making major efforts to develop such chassis-related products as electric power steering system and intelligent braking system. The company has put several self-developed smart braking projects into volume production.
