Aiming for Lifestyle Support Technologies that Can Respond to the Diversity of Residents: Expectations Toward Manufacturers that Provide Component Technologies for Smart Homes

Smart homes utilize data that can be obtained in the course of daily life to support residents' lives. To make smart homes a reality, diverse electronic information and communications technologies must be utilized. We spoke with Professor Yasuo Tan of the Japan Advanced Institute of Science and Technology about the technologies needed to make the ideal smart home a reality and the role of manufacturers developing and supplying those technologies.

Ideal State of Equipment Maintenance: Technology That Realizes Predictive Maintenance

Predictive maintenance is considered the ideal form of equipment maintenance, which has evolved from breakdown maintenance to preventive maintenance. However, it is also true that there is currently no established method that realizes predictive maintenance. Accordingly, we will now explain how to utilize sensor fusion, AI, and edge AI to provide hints to realizing predictive maintenance based on basic knowledge of equipment maintenance.

What Is Low-Power Wide-Area (LPWA) Wireless Communication? - Utilization

Low-Power Wide-Area (LPWA) is wireless communication technology that features low power consumption and wide-area and long-distance communication. Although the amount of communication data is small, communication over 10 km is possible. LPWA is attracting attention as the fundamental technology behind the Internet of Things (IoT) and Machine-to-Machine (M2M) technologies in the smartification of factories, logistics, agriculture, housing, life infrastructure, and other facilities. We explain in this article LPWA utilization examples and Murata Manufacturing’s LPWA modules.
