Erich Jaeger unveils tow connectors and trailer vision tech

Electrical connector system supplier, Erich Jaeger, is set to showcase its trailer tow high-speed connector designs and its bird’s-eye view truck/trailer vision system concept in Detroit this week.

Erich Jaeger is exhibiting at IEEE-SA Ethernet & IP @ Automotive Technology Day (E&IP@ATD) in Detroit, US, on September 24-25 2019.

Designed for trailer towing applications that increasingly require placement of cameras and sensors on the trailers for safety and trailer/load monitoring, Erich Jaeger has developed several high-speed connector and cable designs for automotive, heavy-duty and agricultural applications that incorporate automotive ethernet data links for speeds up to 1 Gbps.

Building on its high-speed strategy, Erich Jaeger will also showcase a bird’s-eye view truck/trailer vision system concept, which it is developing in collaboration with a major truck OEM. Leveraging the truck OEM’s driver insight and expertise, the company is designing a solution that will improve truck driver safety and vision around the truck’s trailer to help reduce potential trailer collisions and increase the driver’s all-around trailer visibility and safety.

IEEE-SA Ethernet & IP @ Automotive Tech Day is the premier venue for OEMs, suppliers, semiconductor vendors, engineers, scientists and educators to share groundbreaking ideas along with implementation strategies and applications related to automotive ethernet systems.
