Featuring UrbanReflect® retro-reflective fabric and coated with thousands of glass micro-beads, this jacket reflects light from vehicles with headlights up to 300 m. Wherever the light source is located, a number of beads are directed towards it and reflect the light.

Continental has been a pioneer in road safety for 150 years. Today, only Continental knows the complete braking process down to the smallest detail: from its initiation by the driver assistance systems, to the brake pedal, to the tyre. This mastery allows Continental to set itself an ambitious goal, the zero vision: zero deaths, zero injuries, zero accidents.
ADAS, Advanced Driver Assistance Systems, are now widely deployed in vehicles. These are equipped with various sensors such as radars, LiDARs and cameras that constantly map the environment of the vehicles. Using artificial intelligence, ADAS systems assess the risks, inform the driver and intervene to secure the situation if the driver does not react quickly enough.
In 2018, the European Union decided to put in place a regulation making the installation of an emergency braking device mandatory for new vehicles. This initiative will reduce the risk of collision with another vehicle but also protect vulnerable road users such as pedestrians and cyclists.
