German automotive industry company Continental is adding driver assistance and automated driving software development activities in Szeged (170 km southeast of Budapest), Continental Hungary country director Róbert Keszte said at an event at the University of Szeged this week.

Keszte said Continental had decided to expand the activities of the software development base in Szeged in light of the quality of the local university instruction and the existing community of professionals based in the city. He noted that Continental had operated a plant in Szeged for decades. 

Balázs Lóránd, who heads Continental Autonomous Mobility Hungary, said a team of 40 software engineers in Szeged would be tasked with preparing data for AI-based developments. 

Continental signed a strategic cooperation agreement, extending to instruction and research, with the university at the event. Continental employs more than 8,000 people at six manufacturing bases, a tire sales center, and its development centers in Hungary.
