Continental received the award for Best New Technology Product during AAPEX 2021 for its new Autodiagnos Drive remote vehicle-data solution.
The Automotive Aftermarket Suppliers Association (AASA) presented the award during a special ceremony at the start of the show. Autodiagnos Drive is designed to deliver advanced diagnostic information to service providers, fleet managers and repair facilities so they can maximize theirdata-driven services. The easily installed, plug-and-play technology increases productivity, reduces downtime and enhances customer service by keeping customers continuously aware of the vehicle’s condition via live access to extended vehicle diagnostic data, according to the company.
Continental Autodiagnos Drive was part of the AAPEX 2021 New Product Showcase, which debuted the industry’s newest products and allowed the products to be judged electronically by pre-registered buyers who viewed the products in the AAPEX Product Plus magazine. Entries with the most votes were named Best New Product in each of eight categories. In addition to New Technology, the other categories included: Tools & Equipment; Safety; Hard Parts; Chemicals, Lubricants & Filters; Automotive Lighting; and Appearance Chemicals & Car Care.
The award was accepted by Howard Laster, executive director and general manager, Continental Automotive Systems, and Christopher Bahlman, head of Diagnostics and Services, Continental Commercial Vehicles and Services.
“We are extremely delighted to be the recipient of this prestigious award,” Bahlman said. “We are proud of our entire team’s efforts to make Autodiagnos Drive a reality and help our customers increase productivity, reduce downtime, enhance customer service, while gaining better insights into the condition of the vehicles they service or manage. Every member of the Diagnostics and Services team is excited about the recognition they have received for their hard work and dedication.”
In addition to the new Autodiagnos Drive, Continental’s Diagnostics and Services group also features two major diagnostic tool programs: Continental Autodiagnos PRO automotive diagnostic system; and Continental Autodiagnos TPMS tools. Both programs are designed to meet the needs of aftermarket service professionals by streamlining vehicle data that technicians can use to analyze, diagnose and repair vehicles faster and better, according to the company.

South Korean firm LG Electronics Inc. said Monday that it would showcase its advanced auto-parts related technology at a motor show to be held in Germany this week.
LG Electronics said it would show key auto parts to global automakers during the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show to be held from Sept. 14 to 17.
Since its first participation in the 2014 Beijing Motor Show, LG Electronics has been rolling out crucial auto parts at international motor shows.
LG Electronics plans to showcase its AV navigation system, auto infotainment gadget, battery heater and others.
Last month, LG Electronics said it will build a factory for the production of electric-vehicle parts in the United States. The factory is intended to produce battery packs for electric cars and is aimed to gradually expand the scope of its operations to other key parts.
Other LG affiliates, such as LG Chem Ltd. and LG Display Co., produce car batteries and automotive displays, respectively. LG Hausys Ltd. and LG Innotek Co. also each supply materials and camera modules for automobiles.
LG Electronics has been making efforts to improve the profitability of its vehicle component business, although the sector's overall performance has not met expectations so far. The division posted an operating loss of 14.5 billion won ($12.7 million) in the January-March period. (Yonhap)
