Self-Driving Vehicles: Making the Vision Become Reality (English)

Self-Driving Vehicles

Making the Vision Become Reality… Soon

Imagine a day in the not so distant future...your plane lands at the airport in a city where you have never been before. After exiting the terminal into the beautiful afternoon sunshine, you tell your smart device, “Before I go to the hotel, I would like to eat Italian for dinner in a nice, cozy restaurant.” In milliseconds your device offers a few suggestions based on your past history and individual preferences. You choose the first restaurant from the list. A few moments later a vehicle approaches, slows down and comes to a stop directly in front of you.

The doors open automatically exposing the vehicle’s elegant interior. Four single seats are in the cabin – all of them empty. As you enter the vehicle it politely greets you, the doors slowly close and the vehicle accelerates to a safe speed. You can now relax. In the meantime, the vehicle takes the highway towards downtown – all by itself.

An entire industry is inspired by the vision of self-driving vehicles. New vehicle concepts, business models and services are likely to reshape the mobility world as we know it. Against this background, TE is the partner of choice to drive the innovations needed to enable technologies that might change the mobility behavior. TE understands the key trends driving this demand such as safety, sustainability and lifestyle changes.

Existing TE solutions are designed according to the requirements of upcoming vehicles that are more complex and have a higher degree of automation. Future connectivity solutions will surely have to meet even higher requirements. The focus of TE during the development of such next generation connectivity solutions is based on its will and power to deliver value to the customers. Furthermore, TE engages with customers early in the design process to accelerate innovation enabling future vehicles to become smarter and safer. TE is well positioned to co-develop solutions that accelerate success for its customers seeking a leadership role in making autonomous vehicles a reality.
