Continental heading to CES 2018 with advanced battery technologies

Technology supplier Continental has detailed its plans for CES 2018 in early January. Unsurprisingly, the company is focusing heavily on battery technologies.

One development that′s set to debut at the technology event will be Continental's latest wireless charging system. This system allows an electric vehicle to simply park above a ground-based charging pad before receiving charge through microcharges. Continental says its solution also has micro navigation which utilizes a magnetic location system that can position the vehicle over a charging pad up to ten times more accurately than a conventional parking assistant.

In addition to this charging system, Continental has envisioned a wireless charging network. In theory, this network would see small wireless chargers installed in everyday places, allowing EVs to receive small bursts of charge throughout the day, effectively eliminating the need to ever plug in an EV.

Despite its investments in wireless charging, Continental is also aware that cable-based charging will continue to play an important role in future EVs. As such, it has developed the AllCharge system which can utilize any charging point whatever the charging rate, type or current or voltage level. Additionally, AllCharge can double as a mobile power bank capable of supplying AC power.

"Continental offers an unrivalled range of charging technologies, developed on the basis of our extensive cross-divisional know-how," director of Powertrain Technology & Innovation Continental North America, Brian McKay said.

"The innovative technologies we are showcasing at CES will make charging an electric vehicle simpler, more convenient and more efficient. This means that the widely discussed issue of range anxiety will soon become largely irrelevant. Additionally, to bring additional features to the consumer, our AllCharge system gives electric vehicles the added utility to serve as a mobile energy source."
