The Management Philosophy that underpins all activities of USHIO Group employees retains the spirit of the “Basic Policy” that was formulated when the Company was first founded, while also recognizing the social issues that have emerged with the changing times. Our Management Philosophy therefore calls us to “fulfill our corporate social responsibility.”
These Action Guidelines describe how to realize the vision of the USHIO Group, and each and every employee abides by the Guidelines on a daily basis.
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.
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.
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.
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.
