Continental and Deutsche Telekom have developed a system called the Digital Guardian Angel, which can help prevent accidents between networked vehicles and cyclists.

Collision alerts are provided in real time to those road users via Deutsche Telekom’s low-delay network. who have installed the proper application of T-Systems on their smartphones.

Oliver Bahns, head of T-Systems, explained that for such a system to work, a high degree of networking and high information processing speed are required. Deutsche Telekom’s cloud servers analyze the next road section in five seconds from data from motorists and cyclists and send an alert to road users immediately if there is a risk of an accident.

In less than a second, those affected will receive an alert either to their in-car assistant system or as a visual or audible signal to their smartphone or smartwatch. This leaves a few valuable seconds to react properly and avoid an accident.
