Business Model


安心・安全な社会の実現 快適・便利な社会の実現 驚きや感動の創造 持続可能な社会への貢献

Realizing Safe and Secure Societies

Example 1

Example 1. Head-up displays in automobiles

A head-up display projects various information onto the windshield of a car while constantly interfacing with electric toll collection (ETC) systems and cloud networks. This technology is expected to reduce driver inattentiveness by enabling them to obtain information without shifting their gaze. To realize safe and secure societies, USHIO is also engaged in the development of head-up displays.

Realizing Comfortable and Convenient Societies

Example 2

Example 2. Use of light in manufacturing smartphones and tablets

Many types of light are used in manufacturing the smartphones and tablets that have enriched and made our lives more convenient. By harnessing the characteristics of light, USHIO plays several roles in the process, eliminating minute dust particles from the manufacturing process, bonding components together, and bringing out the clarity and definition of liquid crystal displays.

Creating Wonderful and Memorable Experiences

Example 3

Example 3. Spread of projection mapping techniques around the world

Projection mapping is a technique that uses numerous digital projectors equipped with high-intensity lamps to project images onto buildings and other large objects and spaces. USHIO's light sources used in this way have continued to enthrall audiences at large-scale events in Japan and around the world.

Contributing to the Sustainability of Societies

Example 4

Example 4. Sterilization of hospitals and public spaces

Sterilization with light, instead of chemicals, is drawing attention as a highly safe method for maintaining hygiene. This promising technique holds potential for use in settings such as hospital operating theaters, swimming pool water and office lobbies. Expectations are growing for the use of light in protecting people's health.
