In this section, Kyocera will introduce its advanced technology and products aimed at supporting the development of autonomous driving systems and the realization of a safe and comfortable mobility society. Visitors can try out interactive demonstrations for a camera-LIDAR fused sensor capable of detecting the distance to an object with high accuracy, and an AI object recognition camera which can identify pedestrians and vehicles with high accuracy. In addition, a 3D-AR head-up display which supports driver safety and comfort with a realistic 3D display, a smart RSU (V2I roadside unit) which collects information from surrounding areas to help facilitate safe traffic flow, and a far infrared radiation (FIR) sensing camera which enables obstacle detection even in difficult visual conditions, such as glare or darkness, will also be on display. Furthermore, a 1.8 inch micro LED display with superior visual performance to LCD and OLED will be made public for the first time.
In addition to its wide range of global manufacturing and solutions businesses, from advanced materials and components to modules, devices, equipment, and systems, Kyocera is strengthening open innovation by combining internal technologies and resources with those from external partners. In the open innovation section, visitors can see the musical toothbrush “Possi”, jointly created with Lion Corporation and Sony Corporation, which aims at helping parents with their children’s tooth brushing, and a communication and vital sensing wearable device that is being tested at construction sites of Shimizu Corporation. This innovative device facilitates seamless wireless communication even in noisy environments and vital sensing monitoring for the prevention of industrial accidents and health management. Furthermore, a smoothie truck “Harvest-to-Go” developed using Kyocera’s environment energy products and IoT technology in collaboration with the vegetable farm “Planet” and the popular smoothie shop “Why Juice?” will also be on display.
This section will feature Kyocera’s IoT network technology supporting a convenient and prosperous society. An IoT solution framework which allows users to easily obtain necessary information without additional programming will be unveiled for the first time. Also, a GPS multiunit compatible with LPWA which is expected to be used in a wide range of fields such as logistics monitoring, theft detection, and air conditioning management, and a NB-IoT core device smaller than the size of an AAA battery that can be incorporated into various devices and personal items, will also be on display. Furthermore, this section includes applications for Kyocera Communication Systems Co., Ltd’s “Sigfox” IoT network solution featuring a low cost, low power consumption network and long distance transmission capabilities. For 5G, Kyocera will showcase sample applications of its 5G connection device.
Realizing a low carbon society for the future is a critical issue on a global scale. In addition to Kyocera’s solar cells, storage batteries, fuel cells, and energy management solutions, the booth will also present Kyocera’s solutions for the future energy optimization through local power exchange.
Advanced technologies play an important role in realizing a comfortable world for everyone. This section includes healthcare sensing devices that support preventive medicine for an aging society and devices that are useful for analysis at medical and manufacturing sites. A carbohydrate monitoring system using a sensor to measure pulse wave will be unveiled for the first time. In addition, a portable type phase contrast digital microscope that can observe hair (surface and internal structure) and a fluid flow rate measuring module will also be displayed.
