Continental is one of the world's largest suppliers of tire pressure control systems for consumer and commercial vehicles. The company has innovated three highly effective tire pressure controls systems: the Intelligent Tire System, the Tire Pressure Monitoring System, and the Deflation Detection System (DDS). These three systems were created to alert the driver of the loss of inflation pressure early. The last thing any driver wants is to be in a sticky situation due to a deflated tire.
Continental ranks among the top 5 automotive suppliers worldwide and holds the number 2 spot in Europe. Continental contributes to enhanced driving safety and global climate protection. Continental is also a competent partner in networked automobile communication.
Such dedication to the driving experience has led Continental to be a globally recognized brand. Vehicles of all types can be seen utilizing Continental technology.
In 2007, Continental acquired Siemens VDO from Siemens AG and has split its auto parts division into three sections: security-related parts, powertrain components, and information and entertainment systems.
