Building the future of transport
Leveraging our electrical expertise, we are helping vehicle and aerospace customers take their businesses to newer, greener horizons. We work with original equipment manufacturers around the globe to accelerate electrification and help build more efficient vehicles that travel faster, farther, higher and safer – all at a lower overall cost to consumers and the environment.
We are improving efficiency across multiple areas in global transport:
- electric vehicles
- commercial vehicles with combustion engines
- electrical content on aircraft
With changes to the ways we move people and materials, new problems are demanding new solutions. In the electric vehicle market, share continues to grow but adoption challenges remain a concern. EV manufacturers must balance competing needs related to vehicle weight, power requirements, consumer expectations and cost. We are engineering innovative solutions to help drive adoption and evolve EV technology in our sweet spot: the convergence of electrical and mechanical power.
Our goal is to develop new technologies that improve efficiency and safety for electric, hybrid and fuel cell commercial vehicles – whether it’s a long-haul lorry headed cross-country, a delivery vehicle making frequent stops or a bus moving commuters across a busy city. To meet the growing demand for longer battery life and range, we are designing components that make electric vehicles more efficient. And as voltage rates increase in EVs, our power protection components address risks and improve safety. We are also boosting intelligence in EVs by connecting systems and providing data that helps original equipment manufacturers improve vehicle power balance and helps drivers better understand the status of their vehicle.
In the aerospace industry, we are leveraging our electrical know-how to develop more electrified aircraft that are safer, cleaner and more cost-efficient. From aeroplane motion-control technologies to EV transmissions, we’re developing innovations that meet the needs of vehicle electrification today and tomorrow.
