Tokyo, April 18, 2018 --- Clarion Co., Ltd. (President & CEO: Atsushi Kawabata; hereinafter “Clarion”) today announced that it will introduce the products and technologies of the Clarion Group in the Hitachi booth (booth number: W1-W01) at the 2018 Beijing Motor Show (15th Beijing International Automotive Exhibition (Auto China 2018)) to be held from April 25 to May 4 in the China International Exhibition Center.
Clarion’s products, such as InfoSeat™ and Color Night Vision Camera for In-vehicle Use, will be exhibited in the Safe Driving Support System Corner of the Hitachi booth as products and technologies being developed by Clarion to support safe driving. Warning data detected from the driving monitoring system and in-vehicle cameras such as the SurroundEye® is accurately communicated to the driver alone using sound and vibration, without disturbing the passengers, with InfoSeat™. A CMOS color sensor with near-infrared sensitivity has been adopted and, by combining visible light color footage with near-infrared black and white footage using independently developed image processing equipment, nighttime driving visibility has been greatly improved with the Color Night Vision Camera for In-vehicle use. In addition, video footage will also be shown of technology such as Park by Memory, whereby parking lot environments, such as the user’s home, and parking patterns are memorized so that the driver can simply press a parking button on a smart device app or in the car to automatically park the vehicle.
Hitachi Automotive Systems (China) Ltd. , the local holding company of Hitachi Automotive Systems, Ltd. in China, will exhibit in the Hitachi booth. With “Moving Forward! To a Future Linking People, Cars and Society” as its theme, the display will introduce the next-generation mobility technology of the Hitachi Group that will support the automotive society, such as with autonomous driving and electrification.
