Harting AG Biel, a division of the Harting Technology Group based in Biel, Switzerland, used the recent Geneva Motor Show to exhibit its expertise in 3D-MID (three-dimensional moulded interconnect device) technology solutions for the automotive industry.

 

3D-MID technology enables the production of integrated electronic devices with a small footprint which are ideally suited to in-car applications such as driver assistance systems, safety features or infotainment equipment. One of these projects is a new position sensor for adaptive cruise control systems, which automatically regulate the safe dist ance to the vehicle in front via a sensor in the front area of the vehicle. The MID solution reduced the size of the ACC while achieving greater precision. Harting AG is also lending its expertise to the Shadow Robot Company Ltd. by integrating 3D-MID components inside the vehicle to aid in the recognition of driver vital signs, enabling greater safety. 

 

In addition, the company has developed a robot hand in conjunction with an e-mobility solution. This hand resembles 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.
