Safety Critical Applications

TE is already is in advanced stages of development for the next generation of highly robust data connectors for safety-critical, ultra-high data volume applications such as LiDAR and RADAR that will generate very large amounts of uncompressed data.

Safety links incorporate additional requirements that are crucial for the realization of ADAS today and future piloted or autonomous driving applications.  This link type must ensure high functional safety levels and real-time computing capabilities. Furthermore, high data volumes must be transported, because sensor data, primarily large image sequences acquired by high resolution cameras, is delivered uncompressed with high refresh rates. Today, safety links are designed as large point-to-point data pipes using proprietary data transmission technologies. When self-driving vehicles become a market reality, functional safety architectures will be required. Fail-safe and redundant topologies based on ring bus systems is one possible solution. In addition, real-time network technologies with low latency and high availability will also be required. Deploying the open protocol time-sensitive networking (TSN) is one possible solution. TE offers connector solutions to support automotive safety applications; typical applications and featured TE products include:
