KYOCERA Demos Future of Autonomous Driving at Japan’s Automotive Engineering Expo

KYOCERA Demos Future of Autonomous Driving at Japan’s Automotive Engineering Expo

KYOTO, Japan–(Business WIRE)–KYOCERA Company (Hideo Tanimoto, President) is exhibiting at Japan’s “Automotive Engineering Exposition 2022 YOKOHAMA,” at the PACIFICO Yokohama Meeting Middle (Yokohama Town, Kanagawa) May well 25 – 27.

Kyocera’s show (Booth #144) will attribute our most recent technological know-how innovations contributing to autonomous driving centered on the theme “Connecting Communities with Kyocera’s Mobility Know-how”.

A major spotlight will be Kyocera’s new “Highway Vehicle Cooperation Process,” which contributes to safe and sound autonomous driving by connecting ITS*1 roadside devices put in in targeted visitors infrastructure with several devices and sensors installed in the auto. At the exhibit, we will exhibit a driving simulator so website visitors can expertise the Cooperative Street-Auto Process in motion.

*This year’s expo is a hybrid event with on the internet and in-particular person attendance achievable.

Main Exhibit Contents (Prepared)

Sensible V2I*2 Roadside Units

Clever V2I roadside units are created for set up on utility poles and targeted visitors lights at intersections with inadequate visibility. This form of machine collects facts from highway infrastructure, this kind of as pedestrian and automobile destinations and website traffic light-weight data, and wirelessly communicates the specifics to vehicles and bicycles. In addition, the Intelligent V2I roadside models can connect sensors, these as FIR*3 cameras and other devices. Blind location information and facts detected by sensors and other products is transmitted to the automobile working with the V2I units to inform the driver.

FIR Digicam Roadside Sensing Technique

The FIR digicam program detects the pace and site of objects in the driver’s path. By imaging the much-infrared radiation these objects emit, FIR camera programs can expose info the human eye is challenged to detect – particularly objects obscured by darkness, rain, fog, or length. In addition, they can identify not only pedestrians and cars and trucks but also bicycles, motorcycles, and large vehicles this sort of as vehicles and buses. The FIR Digicam Roadside Sensing Procedure allows reduce mishaps by communicating information and facts about pedestrians and cars in blind spots utilizing the wise V2I roadside models.

Autonomous Bus Demonstration

Kyocera also develops sensors and factors to assistance autonomous driving know-how, this sort of as stereo cameras, millimeter-wave radar, and peripheral detection cameras. These systems will be shown in a 3D hologram of an autonomous bus outfitted with Kyocera’s sensors and components, as very well as a automobile manage Eu jointly made with Advanced Good Mobility Co., Ltd.

Driving Visibility Improvement Technological know-how

In addition to the higher than, Kyocera will exhibit two new significant impression systems to make improvements to driving visibility by lessening blind spots.

[Driving Visibility Expansion System]

Shows the most acceptable watch for the driver and reveals the presence of pedestrians, including side- and rear-perspective angles, in a person-friendly way.

[Optical Camouflage Technology*4]

Lowers blind places by generating dashboards and pillars appear clear.

* 1 ITS: Intelligent Transportation Techniques

* 2 V2I: Auto-to-Infrastructure

* 3 FIR: Far Infrared

* 4 First optical camouflage technological innovation developed in collaboration with Professor Masahiko Inami of the College of Tokyo Sophisticated Science and Technological innovation Investigate Heart.


Kyocera Company (TOKYO:6971,, the guardian and worldwide headquarters of the Kyocera Group, was launched in 1959 as a producer of good ceramics (also recognised as “advanced ceramics”). By combining these engineered resources with metals and integrating them with other technologies, Kyocera has turn out to be a leading provider of industrial and automotive factors, semiconductor offers, electronic gadgets, wise electricity programs, printers, copiers, and mobile telephones. During the year finished March 31, 2021, the company’s consolidated income income totaled 1.5 trillion yen (approx. US$13.8 billion). Kyocera is ranked #603 on Forbes magazine’s 2021 “Global 2000” record of the world’s premier publicly traded businesses, and has appeared on The Wall Road Journal’s listing of “The World’s 100 Most Sustainably Managed Businesses.”
