Innovation and automation in the automotive wiring harness

Innovation Initiative Wiring Harness

As one of the most elaborate and complex individual components, the cable harness plays an important role for the entire automotive industry. In the future, with electric mobility and autonomous driving, the performance of the cable harness will have to meet new challenges.

Using new opportunities effectively

Automation and modularization, as well as the new production, manufacturing, and assembly technologies associated with them, open up opportunities to improve the value added of this key component.

At the same time, complexity and a wealth of variants in terms of automation involve a number of challenges that can only be solved across companies.

To this end, companies from different levels of the value chain have joined forces in order to meet the challenges together within the framework of pre-competitive cooperation.

The innovation initiative wiring harness is an open cooperation network of actively cooperating industry representatives who are developing several pre-competitive topics within the research campus ARENA2036.

The aim is the exchange and promotion of general technical progress, methodical, and systemic approaches, impulses for standardization and general technical or scientific developments in connection with the automation of the harness in engineering, production, and assembly.

The innovation initiative wiring harness is open to other participants from Germany and abroad.
