Establishment of a joint laboratory with AIST (The National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology) 设立与产综研的共同研究室

Event

As announced in our press release, we have established the “Sumitomo Riko-AIST Advanced Polymer Device Joint Laboratory” with the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST).
As one of the largest public research institutes in Japan, AIST serves as a bridge between Japan’s industries and society by creating technologies that are useful to society, putting them to practical use, and commercializing on innovative technological seed projects.

正如日前发布的新闻公告所宣,本公司与国立研究开发法人 产业技术综合研究所(产综研)共同设立了“住友理工-产综研 先进高分子设备合作研究室”。
作为日本最高级别的公共研究机构,产综研专注于研发有助于日本产业与社会的技术及其实用化,起到了将革新的种子技术与产业化连结起来的“桥梁”作用。

Strategic Partnership  建立合作关系

Our parent company, Sumitomo Electric Industries, has already been running a joint laboratory with AIST from before, and is successfully linking its research results to business.
We have also been collaborating with various universities and research institutes as part of our open innovation program.
I visited their Tsukuba headquarters in Ibaraki Prefecture to explore the possibility of collaboration with AIST and exchanged opinions with the board members in order to further develop our partnership.
Everyone I met has a high level of insight, and I believe that the findings and research results of the Human Mobility Research Center in the field of Information and Ergonomics, in particular, will greatly advance our sensing technology.

从以前开始母公司住友电气工业就与产综研开展了合作,设有合作研究室,实现了研究成果与实业的完美结合。
作为开放式创新的一环,本公司一直以来也与各大学、研究机构开展了合作。
为了进一步建立合作关系,探寻与产综研合作的可能性,我直接访问了茨城县的筑波总部,与各位理事进行了意见交换。
产综研的各位都拥有远见卓识,特别是“信息、人类工学领域Human-Centered Mobility Research Center ”的见解和研究成果,我认为可以极大地促进本公司传感技术的发展。

Purpose of the Collaborative Laboratory  合作研究室的目的

The established laboratory aims to contribute to the safety, security and comfort of people in all aspects of their lives by integrating the advanced technologies developed by Sumitomo Riko and the research fruits of AIST.
Specifically, we will conduct experimental research using a vehicle equipped with a sensing device to simulate actual driving conditions to determine the extent to which it is possible to estimate the information and condition of living human bodies.
In this context, we will create high value-added products and solutions by advancing our comprehensive evaluation technology and establishing various technologies that we are still developing.
I think we should aim to contribute to the further development of the mobility society as a global system supplier.
As the first step, I think we can start with driver monitoring systems and then expand the scope to include steering touch sensors and haptics to make it more advanced.
In the future, it will be possible to use AIST’s research results and facilities on a priority basis, which is expected to contribute greatly to the development of our company, not only in the automotive products sector, but also in the general industrial products sector.

设立的合作研究室旨在通过将住友理工积累至今的先进技术与产综研的研究结果相结合,从而为人们生活中方方面面的安全、安心、舒适做出贡献。
具体而言,运用实际装有传感设备的车辆,进行重现了实际行车状态的实验研究,明确生物体信息和状态可以推定至何种程度。
从中谋求实现综合评估技术的高度化,通过确立本公司开发中的各种技术,研发出拥有高附加价值的产品阵容和解决方案。
作为全球系统供应商,我们的目标是为移动社会(Mobility Society)的进一步发展做出贡献。
我想可否首先从驾驶员监测系统开始,之后扩展到转向传感器和力触觉技术等领域,并进一步实现高度化。
鉴于今后产综研的研究成果和诸多设施我们可以优先使用,因此寄予厚望,期待能为本公司的发展做出卓越贡献,不仅是汽车用品部门,还有在通用工业产品部门的开发上。
