The Sustainability Award winners were announced at the ATZlive Congress. The “Digital Guardian Angel” solution by T-Systems and Continental received an award in the Sustainable Solutions category. The “Sustainability Awards in Automotive” were presented in Berlin at the specialist conference for automotive engineers to celebrate outstanding examples of sustainable contributions to mobility.
Vulnerable road users such as cyclists, pedelec and scooter riders, or pedestrians often go unnoticed in road traffic. The aim of an app from Continental and Deutsche Telekom/T-Systems is to protect them. The Digital Guardian Angel gives cyclists as well as pedestrians greater visibility thanks to real-time networking and collision warning. For instance, the app calculates the path taken by a car and a bicycle. If they are likely to cross paths at the same time, the system warns both road users in real time via the mobile network.
