Continental, 3M team up on infrastructure-to-vehicle tech

German auto-parts maker Continental AG on Oct. 15 said it teamed up with industrial conglomerate 3M Co. to collaborate on infrastructure-to-vehicle, or I2V, interfaces in a bid to improve safety in self-driving vehicles.

I2V solutions will help autonomous cars form a picture of its surrounding environment, including pedestrians, traffic lights and other cars, according to the release.

Continental will use its auto safety systems and 3M will use its roadway technology expertise to improve the interfaces, which can recognize objects in its environment including pavement markings, signs and landmarks.

Both companies will work on correcting the interface's mapping errors and improving object recognition and classification. Other improvements to I2V applications include faster recognitions of crosswalks, intersections and other road infrastructure.
