A Strong Team for Vehicle Safety

Vision Zero, the vision of accident-free driving, is one of the longterm goals of Continental Safety Engineering International GmbH, one of the largest engineering centers for vehicle safety in Europe. As part of Continental‘s Chassis and Safety Division, it focuses on technologies for vehicle safety and driving dynamics. Equipped with high-end technology and an experienced team, the company has operated since 1992 a proofing ground for vehicle safety testing in Alzenau. The test facility for vehicle crash allows real crash situations to be simulated under laboratory conditions.

From Test Bench to Test Track – ika Relies on WheelWatch

Ever since cars have been built, engineers have worked on the design and development of various chassis components to enhance vehicle comfort and at the same time improve active safety. The Chassis Division at the Institute for Motor Vehicles (ika) of the RWTH Aachen University is also committed to these working principles. Since 2013 the ika has successfully deployed WheelWatch for their examinations of the driving dynamics of vehicles.

EDAG_Klimakammer

Vehicles under Challenging Climatic Conditions

Doors, fenders, bumpers, spoilers - car body components must fit precisely and withstand any environmental conditions. Special characteristics such as deformation or expansion must therefore be measured during the development phase of new materials or components. How do materials change at high temperatures, high humidity, or extreme cold? A climate chamber provides answers by artificially replicating real-life climatic conditions to enable measurements. EDAG Engineering GmbH is using AICON's DPA coordinate measurement system to carry out deformation analyses on vehicle prototypes and components.
