FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Exterior view of Hitachi Astemo booth (Exhibit location: West Hall 4, W4 204
Tokyo, May 5, 2023 – Hitachi Astemo, Ltd. has announced it will exhibit at the JAPAN MOBILITY SHOW 2023 from Thursday, October 26 to Sunday, November 5. Hitachi Astemo will showcase a wide range of technologies contributing to the future of an automotive society, under the themes of "Safety: realizing a safe and secure mobility society with reduced traffic accidents"; "Environment: realizing a green planet"; and "Comfort: realizing a society where people can feel the joy of the journey through advanced mobility." The exhibition at Tokyo Big Sight will be in West Hall 4, W4 204.
The exhibit will introduce 360-degree sensing technology, which accurately senses the vehicle's surrounding environment; steer-by-wire technology that contributes to a high level of vehicle running stability on various road surfaces; Smart Brake technology that contributes to highly automated driving and improved vehicle safety and comfort; as well as ADAS*1 technology for motorcycles.
*1 ADAS: Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems
The exhibition will introduce motors and inverters, which contribute to the environmental value of vehicles; and energy management technologies, which optimize battery charging and discharging by linking not only sensor and map information obtained in the vehicle itself, but also with cloud services, and EV*2 systems for motorcycles.
*2 EV: Electric Vehicles
The area showcases "'Cooperative AD' on narrow road technology," which enables automatic vehicles to drive smoothly past oncoming vehicles even on narrow roads where it is difficult to pass; and "Anti-Jerk Control Technology," which contributes to comfortable driving by suppressing unpleasant vibration and shaking characteristic to EV2 vehicles when they come to a stop. In addition, visitors can experience next-generation mobility in a simulation of vehicle equipped with our in-wheel motor and a new steer-by-wire steering device—providing exemplary environmental performance, a comfortable cabin space and a new piloting experience.
To experience how our technologies will add value to cars of the future, visitors will be able to experience a VR (Virtual Reality) simulation depicting Hitachi Astemo’s autonomous driving technology—which will realize a safe and comfortable mobility society—and testing at our Swedish test course under harsh conditions.
