IVI (In-Vehicle Infotainment) Systems/Cloud-Based Information Network Services for VehiclesAs part of its "Smart Access" cloud-based information network service for vehicles, Clarion launched a cutting-edge cloud service utilizing Google™ voice recognition technology, allowing users to search for information from the vast quantity of information provided by Google™.
Clarion's newly developed "Intelligent VOICE" technology has made it possible for users to search for the information they need from the huge volume of information available on the Internet, even using ambiguous expressions. Clarion will be providing new value to users all over the world by rolling out the “Smart Access” service on a global scale, and continuously releasing compatible in-vehicle devices.
Full-Digital Speaker System "01DRIVE" Series
As the world's only full-digital speaker system, transmission from the digital source to the speaker units is fully digital (digital to digital), and by directly driving the speaker, the user is provided with high-quality sound that is virtually indistinguishable from the source.
Safe Driving Support System (Intelligent Safety)
Camera Systems for Commercial Use
[About the Intelligent Safety Business] Clarion has formulated and implemented its Intelligent Safety "Safe & Secure" Systems Business Plan, while also realizing the "Smart Cockpit" concept and establishing a reliability assurance system to achieve "zero defects" and innovative production methods. Building on this solid foundation, Clarion is promoting its Intelligent Safety Business, taking full advantage of our camera sensing and communications systems.
OEM Business with Outstanding Achievements in the Global Market
With its superb technology and highly flexible production systems, Clarion has earned a strong reputation in the global market, and in the OEM∗ market in particular, where we supply OEM certified parts, Clarion has built secure and long-lasting relationships of trust with major automotive manufacturers. Our business in the OEM market began as early as 1951, when we delivered our first original radio to Hino-Renault. We now supply an extensive range of in-vehicle devices to customers all over the world, and this is arguably the backbone of our business. In the future, with the spread of EVs (Electric Vehicles) and HVs (Hybrid Vehicles) in developed nations, there will be an increased demand for more advanced in-vehicle device capabilities. On the other hand, in rapidly growing emerging markets, products tailored to the diverse requirements of different markets will be needed. In this fast-changing in-vehicle device market, Clarion aims to further expand its OEM business on a global scale, supported by its vehicle adaptation technologies developed over many years and its ability to develop innovative new products that meet customer needs one step ahead of the times.

Supporting Safety & Security With Firmly Established In-Vehicle Image Recognition Technology
Clarion is committed to developing systems that support safe driving. We have already developed and supplied automotive manufacturers with camera systems that give drivers a clear view of the outside world, including detection of moving objects, lane detection, parking assistance, and detection of obstacles approaching the rear of the vehicle. Our parking support systems in particular have been designed with a focus on ease of use, incorporating an Overhead View Monitor that supports drivers who find parking difficult.
Our safe driving support systems also help to reduce traffic accidents, incorporating image recognition systems that send a warning to the vehicle during driving. These safe driving support systems will continue to evolve as vehicle safety control systems, and in the future it is expected that they will increasingly become an important function of next-generation vehicles (automatic driving and parking).
For now, Clarion is committed to product development that facilitates the application of these vehicle safety control systems, with the goal of realizing an even safer and more comfortable driving experience.
