Continental, which acquired Motorola’s automotive electronics business in 2006, launched RESCU, its first telematics product, in the 1996 Lincoln Continental, built by Ford Motor Company.
Today, Continental supplies key components for General Motors’ OnStar system, Ford SYNC, and it is developing the Blue Link system with Hyundai Motor America.
All told, Continental has helped deliver more than 22 million connected vehicles worldwide, and it is developing several new advanced multimedia and telematics platforms that showcase the almost unlimited potential of in-vehicle electronics to improve the driving experience, including:
AutoLinQ™: What you need, where you need It
Continental Multi Media Platform (MMP)
Continental’s MMP is a scalable hardware solution that includes radio, CD/DVD player, navigation and many additional interfaces to connect consumer electronic devices. It is built on the Microsoft Windows Embedded Auto platform, which makes it easily upgradeable and, therefore, will help "future-proof" vehicles and bridge the development cycles between the automotive and consumer electronics industries.
An entry-level version of MMP is expected to provide a radio; hands-free calling utilizing Bluetooth wireless technology; access to online services like Internet radio; and the ability to easily connect and play personal music collections via portable devices such as USB or SD cards.
An advanced version, called MMP High, will integrate all the basic features in MMP Entry and also include a high-tech navigation system that utilizes Microsoft’s BING Online Search and NAVTEQ Traffic™ to provide real-time traffic information. Both versions of Continental’s MMP are based on advance hardware and a System on Chip Architecture concept.
