Automated driving is considered one of the forms of mobility with great future potential. Bosch, the world’s largest automotive supplier, has nominated Huber & Suhner (Pfäffikon, Switzerland) as a partner for the development and production of antennas used in radar sensors for assisted and automated driving.
One of the prerequisites for automated driving is the faithful mapping of the vehicle’s environment using radar. Huber & Suhner’s 3D antenna technology , based on metallized plastic, plays a key role in ensuring that driver assistance systems can detect the position, relative speed and direction of movement of other road users and objects from a long distance and even at higher speeds with the utmost reliability.
For Bosch, the decisive factor in awarding the contract to the supplier of optical and electrical connection technology was its product and process development expertise and the possibility of obtaining everything from a single source, from engineering to series production.
With this nomination, Huber & Suhner reaches another milestone in the implementation of its growth strategy in the automotive market. Last year, the company was already able to start series production for the supply of radar antennas for a leading manufacturer of driver assistance systems.
