The particular strengths of HELLA lie in the experience gained over many years and the multifaceted synergies surrounding our core fields of expertise "Light" and "Electronics". We have brought many innovative products into series production, such as the accelerator pedal sensor with non-contact sensor technology, and the world's first xenon headlight with glare-free high beam. In particular by combining lighting and electronics expertise under one roof, HELLA enjoys a unique technological position with which we can shape the mobility of tomorrow.
Efficiency and electrification
The need to increase energy efficiency has gained enormously in importance. Against this background, we provide a range of key components for energy management products. Our product portfolio includes intelligent battery sensors, voltage stabilizers and research to improve energy management in hybrid and electric drive systems. Energy savings are also a priority for other HELLA products, such as electronic power steering, the supply of heater control units and modules for pumps.
Autonomous driving is one of the most influential trends in the automotive industry. The core expertise of HELLA - lighting and electronics - play a decisive role in autonomous driving scenarios. In the last 15 years we have already produced more than 20 million radar sensors in four generations. In addition, we are developing camera software for object recognition as well as new sensors that facilitate the path from supported driving through to automated driving.
Intelligent lighting systems
Automotive lighting technology, one of our core fields of expertise since 1899, will have completely new functions in the coming years. We are currently experiencing the digitalization of automotive lighting: headlamps are increasingly controlled by software rather than mechanics. For example, lighting elements can indicate whether a vehicle is driving autonomously, they can give other road users warnings and help turn the vehicle interior into a living room or study. A journey into the future - together with us.
