Environment / Robot Business
We propose products, services, and initiatives that respond to various issues facing society, including environmental issues such as global warming and carbon neutrality that are attracting attention, changes in the work environment due to the declining birthrate and aging population, issues related to nursing care, and disaster preparedness.
Toward the realization of carbon neutrality in 2050
Proposing "V2L" and "V2H" lifestyles of the future
We are entering an era in which we must review not only our business activities but also the lifestyles of each and every one of us in order to achieve carbon neutrality. We offer a wide range of products and services, including the well-known "solar power generation systems," "home energy storage systems" and "industrial energy storage systems," which can store electricity generated by these systems and supply it when needed, as well as "quick chargers" for electric vehicles and "power feeders" that return electricity from electric vehicles to homes and businesses. We offer a wide range of products and services. We are also actively involved in advocating new lifestyles and business styles such as "V2L (vehicle to load)" and "V2H (vehicle to home)," which not only save on electricity costs but also reduce CO2 emissions and address electricity shortages.
Responding to an aging society and declining workforce
New Steps to Solve Challenges
We are proposing nursing care-assist robots and power-assist suits to help resolve issues such as the "accelerated aging of the population," "concerns about nursing care and medical care," and the "declining workforce. We believe that these products can help solve the shortage of nursing care workers and compensate for differences in physical fitness due to age, gender, and body size. In addition to the nursing care industry, robots will surely play an active role in the future in the food industry, manufacturing industry, and other industries where human hands are needed.
We will strive to solve problems by proposing these products and robots.
For "safety and security" to protect people from disasters
Promotion of the Monitoring and Evaluation System for the Degree of Damage
The Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) system, jointly developed by our company and aLab, uses sensors installed in buildings to measure the shaking caused by earthquakes to determine the soundness of buildings.
The SHM system has been launched by the Japan Building Protection Association to ensure the reliability of the SHM system, thereby promoting its widespread use throughout Japan and contributing to the speed and efficiency of emergency risk assessments conducted by local governments.
The results of the instantaneous determination of earthquake damage to buildings by sensors are expected to be utilized to ensure the safety of building owners and users, as well as for disaster prevention activities in disaster-stricken areas.
