Car-to-Car, Car-to-X, and In-Car Communication

Short range communication technologies enable the wireless data interchange between mobile and stationary devices within a certain distance at any time and wherever needed. The range of applications is vast and effects almost every area of our daily life. From consumer electronics through industrial and building automation up to transport and logistics, as well as safety relevant automotive applications, short range communication is used to build up data networks in order to provide and exchange the relevant information.       

 

TE supplies full automotive qualified antenna systems for e.g. V2X DSRC, Remote Keyless Entry, positioning  and Infotainment as well as for non automotive applications like remote maintenance, transport telematics and other M2M/IoT applications.

 

Beside a range of standard products TE is specialized in developing customized antenna systems for the related frequency spectrum and installation spaces
