Continental plans to begin production of an automatic-braking and pedestrian-detection system for Mercedes-Benz at the beginning of 2013. The Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) business unit will be the first unit offered by a major automaker in Europe to use a stereo camera to detect and prevent impacts with pedestrians and other obstacles on the road. The camera will be integrated with a radar system that will present collision detection of up to 200 meters: the radar will detect a possible danger and the camera will evaluate it. The system will also feature the Emergency Steer Assist (ESA) that automatically steers the car around pedestrians when it determines there is scanty distance to stop the car without hitting anybody. Whenever there’s an obstacle in the car’s way the Emergency Brake Assist (EBA) brakes automatically at speeds of up to 70 km/h (44 mph). Continental reported that Mercedes would offer the unit as an optional feature on high end models.
