Experience leading-edge sensing technology for autonomous driving - OMRON to have a booth at the 45th Tokyo Motor Show 2017 -

October 24, 2017

OMRON Corporation (HQ: Shimogyo-ku, Kyoto; CEO: Yoshihito Yamada) has announced that it will participate in the 45th Tokyo Motor Show 2017. Held at Tokyo Big Sight from October 28 (Sat.) to November 5 (Sun.), 2017, this will be one of the world's biggest all-around motor shows.

Aspiring to a society with accident-free, safe and secure mobility, OMRON is pursuing safety, convenience, and resolution of congestion with measures for vehicles, road transport, and the social infrastructure, through the development of advanced car-mounted products and transport & road management systems. The OMRON booth at the 45th Tokyo Motor Show 2017 will introduce leading-edge sensing technology for contribution to safe autonomous driving by means of hands-on demonstrations. These demonstrations will enable visitors to experience driver monitoring technology for detecting the degree of driver concentration and 3D-LIDAR, a system for detecting the situation on the periphery of the vehicle over a wide scope. In addition to these demonstrations, the booth will display a wide range of OMRON technologies and products that are supporting the advances in connected cars and environment-friendly vehicles.

Leading-edge technologies and products to help build a society with accident-free, safe and secure mobility

  1. Driver monitoring technology to detect the degree of driver concentration
    The OMRON booth will display driver monitoring technology applying the most advanced artificial intelligence (AI) technology. Besides detecting the degree of driver concentration, this technology has become capable of sensing the state of the driver even if he or she is wearing a mask or sunglasses. Through a cockpit-type demonstration, visitors will be able to experience the self-driving cars of the future that will be brought by driver monitoring technology. The booth will not only display technology but also introduce the service for provision of safe driving indicators to businesses which we intend to launch this coming spring. This service rests on detection of the driver's degree of concentration for safe driving and the operational state of the vehicle.

  2. 3D-LIDAR for detection of the situation on the vehicle's periphery over a wide scope
    The OMRON booth will display 3D-LIDAR, a system which will contribute to the emergence of autonomous driving on ordinary roads and city streets where there are not only other vehicles and pedestrians but also utility poles, curbs, and many other obstacles. Visitors will be able to experience the high-precision sensing of the situation in a 360-degree radius around the vehicle, by using a 3D display projecting three-dimensional images of objects.

  3. The latest technologies and products supporting advances in connected cars and electric vehicles
    Among the technologies and products displayed by the OMRON booth will be Connected Gateway ECU, a gateway unit with a wireless communications capability for high-security connected cars, and products with high-voltage AC inverters for size reduction based on advanced power source control technology. The booth will also display core technologies supporting power electronic products.
