Examples of IoT Usage

Automobile insurance X Sensor technologies

CASE 1
Automobile insurance X Sensor technologies

Place beacons with acceleration sensors in cars and synchronize them with the driver’s smartphone. In the event of an accident, sensors that have detected the impact will react, enabling the insurance company to quickly make contact. This is a new type of service that uses IoT for insurance.

Smart homes X Web technologies

CASE 2
Smart homes X Web technologies

In addition to TVs and game consoles in the home, all consumer electronics such as air conditioners and refrigerators are connected to a network that controls optimizes energy usage. We provide all the web technologies necessary for the IoT to realize smart meters, smart keys, and security systems.

Robots & Chat technologies

CASE 3
Robots & Chat technologies

Consumers can place a robot with video chat, facial recognition functions, and wireless technology in their homes. Even when they are out, they can use their smartphones to communicate with family members at home through the robot for rich communication that brings a ‘you-are-there’ feeling.
