Assistance systems, safety features or infotainment - more and more electronics are finding their way into cars. With HARTING 3D-MID technology, customers can integrate complex electronics with minimal space requirements into cars.
With many years of experience under its belt, HARTING AG Biel (Switzerland) understands the demands of the automotive industry. In close cooperation with customers, numerous projects have been successfully completed which HARTING AG produces in series. One of them is the position sensor for adaptive cruise control. Adaptive Cruise Control Systems (ACC) automatically regulate the safety distance to the vehicle in front via a sensor in the front area of the vehicle. HARTING's MID solution reduced the size of the ACC while achieving greater precision.
High-tech in the vehicle interior for more safety
In cooperation with Shadow Robot Company Ltd, HARTING AG will use the IDTechEx Show! (10 and 11 April 2019, Estrel Convention Center, Berlin) to demonstrate how to achieve greater safety by integrating 3D-MID components/smart surface inside the vehicle, for example via the recognition of driver vital signs.
In addition, HARTING AG is showing in Berlin a robot hand. This hand is oriented to a human hand in size and function. It has 24 joints, 20 of which can be controlled independently. The hand is mainly used to research algorithms to simulate human gripping processes. "The robot hand makes clear the variety of opportunities offered by 3D-MID technology," says Susanne Giehl, Managing Director of HARTING AG Biel.
