World first: We are continuously working on developing solutions for an emission-free future and have now expanded our portfolio with the addition of a new 48-volt electric drive with fully automatic, variable transmission for e-bikes. Electric bicycles are now a common sight on cycle paths across the world. They are an important component of a connected and environmentally friendly lifestyle. So we are quite happy to present our latest innovative motor for e-bikes at Eurobike 2017 (hall A6, stand 304) in Friedrichshafen, Germany. Doors will open in only one week. We are looking forward to your visit.

More than collecting data // Our dynamic eHorizon goes beyond just collecting and providing road data. It also takes dynamic events into account. This could be a dangerous obstacle around the next corner for example, or information about when the traffic lights on the road ahead will turn green. Information about dynamic events will make driving safer and and will help to save energy. How? Get to know this in our new episode of The Garage #ContiGarage bit.ly/ContiGarage_07

Translucent surfaces for a greater safety // Our contribution to greater road safety: an innovative further development of our surface materials. The integration of light effects in decorative surfaces for vehicle interiors is an important milestone: Varying light sources integrated in surfaces enable personalized color adaptation. In the event of fatigue or dangerous traffic situations, a change in the color of the surfaces could increase the driver’s awareness level again. We will present our translucent Acella Hylite at the IAA 2017 show in Frankfurt am Main, booth A07/08 in hall 5.1. bit.ly/2vhNnph

Our app for anti vibration // One of our latest highlights in the field of digital application: ViProtect. ViProtect can be used as a backup to professional technology used to analyze vibrations on a variety of systems in industry. The app suggests options for a suitable bearing system based on the mass of the system, the number of bearing points, and the excitation frequency. Users also receive technical data on the selected bearing elements and can request more information using the contact form. Detailled information are summarized here: bit.ly/2uyH2aF

Expertise in rubber takes to the waterway // We are always on the lookout for new conveyor belt applications. So did you know that we even conquered the segment of waterways and canal locks? There our conveyor belt material is used to seal concrete seams - with a lot of success. Read the full story about how our rubber expertise helped the canal lock in Kleinostheim, Germany, to being prevented from damages. bit.ly/2t68DR8

The car of the future // The trend towards autonomous or driverless vehicles will have significant impacts on vehicle interiors - for example the focus will shift towards privacy, relacation, communication and work. And of course we are taking over this trend. Get to know the major opportunities that our latest and innovative interior mateials offer - for example at IAA 2017 show in Frankfurt am Main, booth A07/07 in hall 5.1. or right here: bit.ly/2u997Gl

A look into the future // New month - new episode of The Garage. In our current video you can meet Herbert, Chris Cloud and our eHorizon. With our eHorizon, vehicles can predict the traffic situation ahead. This also works for long distances, going beyond the reach of the car’s sensors. Vehicles collect road information and send it to the cloud. The data is merged into a highly detailed map and sent back to the cars. Now they know at an early stage what obstacles or dynamic events are ahead. Curious? Check it out bit.ly/2t917Dl

Switchable engine mounts enter production // Engine mounts link the power train to the body and, on the one hand, reduce road-induced engine vibrations and, on the other, insulate against engine-induced vibrations to prevent them from being transmitted to the body and car interior. A solid connection ensures excellent vehicle dynamics. But to ensure maximum ride quality, the rigidity needs to be low. This conflict of objectives is resolved by a switchable engine mount. We will be showcasing this innovation September 14-24 at IAA 2017 in Frankfurt in hall 5.1, stand A07/A08.

We l.o.v.e. Europe: Pilot project for a strong Europe // Under the aegis of the initiative “We l.o.v.e. (Live Our Values Everyday) Europe – Europe without Borders” we launched a program expecially for young people. Together with Germany’s Federal Employment Agency we offered jobseekers aged 18 to 25 short internships at our locations elsewhere in Europe. Today is already the last day for the young people - they will be coming home tomorrow. We will keep you up to date about their experiences. http://bit.ly/2rMIZje

Our commitment to quality awareness // Quality is our top priority. Therefore we recently joined the "Quality is added value" initiative - a group of manufacturers from the automotive aftermarket that make independent auto repair shops and drivers aware of the potential dangers of using inferior parts.
