ADAS - Advanced Driver Assistance Systems
Engineering plastics offer diverse solutions for all areas of sensor technology and autonomous driving
Increasing vehicle connectivity, new assistance functions to improve the safety of vehicle occupants and other road users, and the trend toward highly and fully automated driving are leading to the increasing use of so-called ADAS sensors (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems). Depending on the degree of automation, more than 20 ADAS sensors can be installed in a vehicle for this purpose. The ADAS market is estimated to be worth $32 billion in 2023, with average annual growth rates of 17%*. Key components of these systems are sensors and their housings. And this is where our engineering plastics Pocan® and Durethan® come into play.
Essential components of these systems are sensors, with the help of which the vehicle's environment is fully monitored. The most relevant ADAS sensors according to the current state of the art
- and camera-based sensors
Sensors are becoming ever more powerful and at the same time more compact and cost-effective with increasingly diverse and demanding requirements. Our engineering plastics are used primarily for the housings and can thus demonstrate their strengths in terms of functional integration. The main requirements for sensor housing materials are as follows:
- UV, hydrolysis and chemical resistance
- Mechanically robust
- Laser markable and weldable
- Low warpage
- Low coefficient of thermal expansion
