The Road to Autonomous Driving


The Road to Autonomous Driving

Increased levels of automation in passenger vehicles is driving demand for smarter sensors and closer networking of on-board systems.

The Road to Autonomous Driving

Today’s automobiles already have the intelligence to actively assist the driver, with increasing levels of assistance and autonomy on the horizon. Supplementary information from communication via WLAN or mobile telecommunication channels between the onboard electronic devices and the infrastructure (V2I) or other vehicles in the vicinity (V2V) will boost the decision confidence level of the Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS). 

Developing Technology Solutions to ‘Drive’ the Future

With an increasing level of automation in driving, there is a growing need for faster data transmission.  TE is at the forefront, breaking ground with technologies that will help advance current Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) to an autonomous driving reality.


Using measurements and simulations, TE has shown that an Ethernet data transmission rate of 100 Mbit/s can be reliably achieved with faster implementations under development. 


TE has also developed an antenna module that helps eliminate the variations between higher performance, keeping the required space as unchanged as possible with competitive costs.

Enabling Cleaner Diesel Engines

TE's Marcus Schulte describes how we work with our customers to help limit vehicle emissions. One example is a sensor we created to measure the quality and concentration of urea in systems that reduce the amount of greenhouse gases created by diesel engines.
