Augmented reality software

As a result of Continental’s consolidation of Elektrobit (EB) as a standalone software company, Elektrobit will develop the Augmented Reality (AR) Creator software solution, in addition to continuing to develop embedded software and services for automakers and Tier 1 suppliers.

AR Creator is part of Continental’s AR Head-Up Display (AR-HUD). For more information, visit
