Transportation is a fundamental need in the daily lives of most people. It is comprised of several industries including automotive, rail, aerospace, logistics, marine and transportation infrastructure that support air, sea, and land traffic. These industrial applications require components that withstand variations in temperature and vibration, while providing ingress protection from water and chemicals. Transportation is poised to undergo significant technological advancement and is one of the fastest growing verticals, especially in the areas of infotainment, electrification, construction and agricultural vehicles (CAV), semi- and fully- autonomous vehicles and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS).

The accelerated development and prototyping of autonomous and semi-autonomous vehicles demand high speed, ultra-reliable, and secure end-to-end network integration. Advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) are one of the fastest growing technologies in automotive electronics, with steadily increasing rates of adoption of industry-wide quality standards. ADAS seek to automate, adapt and enhance vehicle systems for safer and better driving. These automotive safety features are designed to avoid collisions and accidents by offering technologies that alert the driver to potential problems, or to avoid collisions by implementing safeguards and taking over control of the vehicle.
