SCHAFFHAUSEN, Switzerland – Sept. 5, 2018  – TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity and sensors, will bring together three of its experts Sept. 19 to discuss how the convergence of high-speed data and real-time computing is changing the driving experience during a free live webinar entitled “Car to Cloud Technology.”


The conversation will focus on how advanced materials, miniaturization and new power and data architectures enable vehicle manufacturers to reliably connect in-vehicle technologies to the cloud. TE experts will also look to the nearing reality of 5G, in which manufacturers will use antennas and high-speed connectors to enable a safer, more autonomous driving experience. The free hour-long webinar begins at noon EDT.

“The growing number of sensors in a car will massively increase the amount of data that needs to be managed within the vehicle as well as to its external environment, be it to the infrastructure or the cloud,” Freckmann said. “Vehicle-to-everything, or V2X, connectivity allowing real-time analysis of our vehicles from anywhere will soon become the norm. TE is working closely with manufacturers around the world to bring this more connected future to our roads and highways.”
