Future autonomous driving systems will evolve requiring a better understanding of road conditions in remote areas while also communicating with other vehicles and road infrastructures and making more sophisticated judgements in connection with the cloud. The system configuration will therefore become increasingly complex.
To realize a safe and comfortable drive, high performance and reliability are indispensable to understanding and responding immediately and precisely to the surrounding environment and driving conditions. For this, high performance and reliability are prerequisites for the data communication technology used in these systems. In addition, the use of fully shielded connectors is necessary to ensure components in these highly complex systems do not interfere with each other. Furthermore, the connectors and cable harnesses must be smaller, lighter as well as more efficient in their delivery of real-time transmission.
