Recent automotive situation is facing the revolutionary period in terms of the power (FCV, EV, HEV), control (auto driving), communication (health care, application, media cooperation). Therefore, the demands for the next-generation automotive are constantly increasing. Due to this situation, the technical innovation is the urgent task to the materials of the wire harness that is linking each function of the automotive.
