Innovation in Transportation Connectivity
Electrifying and Connecting All the Ways We Travel
What is driving the evolution of connectivity in transportation? Innovation is happening because of recent advancements in high-voltage physics, materials science, and advanced circuitry that make rugged, reliable, integrated solutions possible and transport safe, fun, and sustainable.
At TE, we apply our expertise in these areas to manufacture high-voltage connector systems, high-density sensors, 5G antennas, turnkey assemblies, and miniaturized cabling designed to meet the most rigorous transportation challenges: Improve vehicle reliability and responsiveness. Detect potential mechanical failures before these occur. Reduce energy use while connecting vehicles to the cloud. And accelerate and integrate high-speed data, high-current power, and high-clarity signal connectivity – within vehicles, between vehicles and infrastructure, and across entire transportation networks.
Around the world, our engineers are working side-by-side our customers – automakers, rail companies, and aerospace innovators – to define and develop the integrated technological architectures making transportation safe, sustainable, and reliable in the harshest conditions. Our solutions are built to withstand the extreme exposure, temperatures, and vibrations that come with traveling on the road and rails, around town and at the worksite, and across the sky and in deep space.

Minding what matters to enable the future of transportation. On the road, today’s electric vehicles (EVs) – cars, trucks, and buses – are providing drivers and passengers with safe, connected performance with the capacity for high acceleration over increasingly longer distances. In the air, commercial airplanes are offering travelers high-speed internet access and in-flight entertainment systems without sacrificing comfort – while giving pilots advanced solutions for monitoring avionics and flight systems, analyzing data, and integrating navigation, landing, and communications functions. And on the rails and beneath the city streets, transcontinental trains and mass transit systems are helping people to get to where they need to go – on time and in comfort while also staying connected to work, family, and their activities.
Innovations in Connectivity
Tooling for Large-Gauge Cable
Market demand for EVs is driving production demand for large-gauge wire and cables. To manage cable preparation, harness manufacturers need the right tooling for high-voltage wire processing.
Autonomous Mobile Systems
Autonomous mobile robots are fully capable of map building, pathing finding and obstacle avoidance. Learn about applying solutions for automating water spider processes.
Data Connectivity for Industrial Vehicles
To meet market expectations, engineers must design Ethernet systems capable of increasing driver satisfaction and productivity while lowering total cost of ownership.
