IoT R&D Center

In collaboration with plants in the SUMITOMO Electric Group, we are pushing ahead with the development of Internet of Things (IoT) technologies such as sensing systems, wireless communication, and AI and big data analysis to support manufacturing in our group, focusing on productivity improvement, automated inspection, predictive maintenance and work safety.

Factory IoT system

IoT technologies to collect and analyze data by connecting multiple sensors and devices to networks have been introduced increasingly into various manufacturing fields in recent years.
We are developing energy-saving wireless sensors to detect facility trouble and operating conditions and multi-hop wireless networks that enable economical introduction and user-friendly operation, based on our wireless technologies. We are also working on research to apply big data analysis to solve manufacturing challenges including productivity improvement and predictive failure monitoring for production equipment.
