ICT & Industrial
Our lives are always enriched by technological advancements. We hear words like "AI," "robotics," "metaverse," and "new normal" almost every day, and themes related to resolving social issues, such as "decarbonization" and "SDGs," are also gaining traction in every industry. The world's values have shifted from "products" to "services," with "security" becoming increasingly important. As solutions tailored to our customers' needs, we offer cutting-edge semiconductor products and services.
In the manufacturing industry, smartification and low-manpower operation have become pressing issues given the need to respond to the shrinking domestic market, declining price competitiveness, and rapidly changing market needs. There is also an urgent need in the construction machinery industry to digitalize processes while maintaining robustness in order to address the labor shortage caused by an aging skilled workforce. That is why it is essential to provide products that support digitalization and smartification in a timely manner by utilizing IoT, AI, and other advanced technologies.
We contribute to solving social issues by obtaining optimal proposals from suppliers who offer highly reliable products and sourcing from Japan and abroad the newest solutions capable of accelerating the transition to IoT and AI in construction equipment.
Contributing to Safety and Low-Manpower Operation Through High-accuracy Perception for Drones and AGVs (Unmanned Guided Vehicles)
AGVs and drones are attracting attention as a means of achieving automation and low-manpower operation in a wide range of work processes, and as perception technologies required in autonomous driving, we provide solutions for rapidly visualizing the surrounding situation in 3D using LiDAR.
Realizing High-Speed and Low-Power Consumption Surround View Monitoring to Achieve Decarbonization in Facilities
To automate industrial machinery and achieve higher speeds, the processing of images in surround view monitoring is needed to detect people and objects. We offer an "edge AI chip" that enables faster and lower-load image processing, which results in a significant reduction in thermal issues and power consumption.
Outdoor-Use Edge Computing Boosts Efficiency on Construction Sites and Other Outside Work Environments
Machine efficiency and labor savings are expected to address labor shortages in agriculture and construction fields. We offer AI image recognition ECUs that use AI to detect people and prevent accidents and also have environmental resistance suitable for outdoor use.
Information and Communication Technology (ICT)
As information and communication devices and services evolve, it has become increasingly important to securely handle increasing amounts of data in office work and infrastructure services. Businesses are also expected to provide a user experience that meets the standards of today's "new normal."
However, a number of new issues have emerged. These include power consumption and heat dissipation issues due to faster and larger data transmission ; security measures needed for deploying network services; and dealing with operability via gestures and other contactless interactions.
To help solve these issues, we provide solutions based on the latest technologies using not only hardware but also combined software services.
Contactless Operation Modules
As a result of increased hygiene measures prompted by the spread of COVID-19, an increasing number of businesses are introducing contactless devices that use gesture input, which raises a number of implementation challenges such as sensing accuracy and difficulty integrating into products. Our contactless operation modules can be retrofitted to existing touch panel products, making it much easier to make existing operation devices contactless.
Secure and Reliable Management of Software Service Licenses
With software piracy persisting as a global issue, the question of how to protect software assets and increase software business profitability has become an inseparable part of the software business. We provide anti-piracy solutions with the best tools for protecting software and managing software licenses.
