Social Systems


In developed countries, as well as in emerging economies that are rapidly becoming motorized, there is a rise in the number of mobility-related issues. These include an increase in the number of traffic accidents and congestion, as well as a heavier burden on the environment caused by car exhaust.

With traffic accidents that threaten the lives of people on roads and railways, OMRON pursues enhanced safety and convenience for road traffic/social infrastructure. The company also works to ease congestion through its traffic and road management systems, as well as in railway station systems. We look into the future of ever-evolving social systems by creating our unique social automation solutions designed to sense various social phenomena and analyze, evaluate, and control the detected information.


One of our strengths is in comprehensive technologies and products capable of optimally controlling traffic as well as the flow of cars and people. For example, our traffic and road management systems incorporate traffic sensing technology as well as sensors that detect cars and pedestrians, making mobility safer and more comfortable. Moreover, these systems are expected to alleviate traffic congestion and reduce vehicle exhaust emissions by sensing car behavior and providing optimal and flexible road traffic control according to the conditions detected. Under the banner of "social automation," we seek both development of social infrastructure and preservation of the global environment.
