“Everyday operations in a wide range of industries will gain in efficiency as a result of the smart air spring,” the company said.


“The air spring can supply precise and reliable information on its status – e.g. pressure, temperature and height. Operations will therefore become simpler and more efficient, especially in the fields of control and monitoring.”


Continental said that this is an example of “a cross-section of innovations, smart solutions, technological developments and services” that the company is focusing on as it embraces Industry 4.0 and artificial intelligence (AI).


Continental said it is driving industrial transformation characterised by digitalisation by not only further developing its business but also fundamentally changing it and expanding its base. The company sees in Industry 4.0 and the associated smart applications and services the potential to become even more innovative and agile and to continue to help shape tomorrow’s mobility in the key industries.


Not least the automation of its sites and production plants will also be a crucial factor in this. As a supplier and industry partner, Continental said it plays a significant role in helping shape the industrial infrastructure across a wide range of sectors.


In order to achieve that, the company said it is concentrating its resources within the corporation and reaching out to external experts, customers and start-ups.
