In addition to market-leading car navigation systems, we have developed intelligent parking assist systems driven by image processing technology, and are contributing to a more comfortable automotive lifestyle.


Hybrid automatic transmission for commercial vehicles

The actuator switches rear wheels to automatic steerage mode in response to driving conditions, improving safety at high speeds, steerage responsiveness, and rotation at low speeds.

Active rear steering (actuator)

Ultrasonic sensors and cameras detect parking spaces. The system sets the target parking position automatically, and flipping a switch activates self-operation of the steering wheel, making it easy to back into a parking space or to parallel park.
