In 2011, Continental A.G.'s Emerging Tech profile was mainly focused on environmental and electrical technologies with a major contribution to the following technologies:

  • Electric Vehicles & Batteries (~0.9% of all granted patents in this space),
  • Environmental Waste Management, and
  • Hybrid Vehicle.

CON 2013 Patent Portfolio

In 2013, Continental had less concentration on but still a major contributor to Electric Vehicles & Batteries technologies. The company expanded into 4 new technologies:

  • Lithium Batteries,
  • Nuclear Power, and even
  • Image Recognition, and
  • Big Data.

CON 2018 Patent Portfolio

In 2018, Continental now has a comprehensive patent portfolio covering 15 emerging technologies. The company is now a major contributor to the following emerging technologies:

  • Autonomous Vehicles,
  • Image Recognition,
  • Drones,
  • Satellites, and even
