OREANDA-NEWS. Hitachi Automotive Systems, Ltd. today announced that the company will exhibit at the 44th Tokyo Motor Show to be held from Thursday October 29 to Sunday November 8 at the Tokyo Big Sight International exhibition center. Under the theme of "Moving Forward! to a future connecting people, vehicles and society", the Hitachi Group booth introduces advanced technologies such as autonomous driving and connected car systems that are contributing to the evolution of next-generation vehicles.

In response to increasingly stringent global environmental regulations, society is demanding more advanced safety performance and an improvement in comfort to reduce the burden on drivers. Along with this, for high performance, high efficiency, and high accuracy, a higher order of technology innovation for vehicles is necessary. The role of the parts and systems suppliers is becoming more and more important.

Hitachi Automotive Systems' aim is to create value for society; helping to build vehicles that connect people and society that are low-carbon, zero-accident, and safe and comfortable through further development of vehicle mobility technologies in the three business areas of the environment, safety, and information. In order to provide this value, in the future, technology for linking vehicles with the outside such as information & telecommunications, energy, and social infrastructure will be a key in addition to electronic control and electrical drive technologies.

Accordingly, to respond to these requirements, Hitachi Automotive Systems is further refining mechatronics technology for integrating the electronics, control systems and mechanisms that are its strengths as well as system integration technology for optimum integrated control of components in its wide-ranging portfolio of engine management, electric powertrain, drive control, and car information systems. In addition, the true value of Hitachi Automotive Systems will give full play to its ability to build a competitive advantage over other systems suppliers by creating synergy with Hitachi Group. This includes utilizing high functional materials and collaborating with providers of social innovation technologies such as information and telecommunications, power, and social and industrial systems.

At the 44th Tokyo Motor Show 2015, Hitachi Automotive Systems will exhibit jointly with Hitachi, Ltd. in booth No. E4202 in East Hall 4. Some of the items that will be on show are described below.
