JCN joint communications network (US DoD) Newswire) - NEC (NEC Corporation, Tokyo, www.nec.com, www.necus.com) An electronics conglomerate known in the U.S. for its monitors. In Japan, it had the lion's share of the PC market until the late 1990s (see PC 98).
NEC was founded in Tokyo in 1899 as Nippon Electric Company, Ltd. announced today that it will exhibit an innovative lineup of intelligent transport systems (ITS) and services at ITS World Congress 2006, taking place at ExCel London, UK, from October 8-12, 2006. The ITS World Congress has rotated between Europe, the Americas and the Asia-Pacific region since it was established in 1994 and is renowned for its support throughout the ITS world in government, industry and other organizations. Through attendance NEC aims to cultivate new business and contribute to the solving of global transport issues through discussion on technology and market trends.
NEC's theme at this year's congress is "Developing a Ubiquitous Transportation Society." Its broad lineup includes solutions, platforms, and individual and device technologies, which offer added value Added value in financial analysis of shares is to be distinguished from value added. Used as a measure of shareholder value, calculated using the formula:
NEC's exhibits will include the following:
1. Pedestrian Support Service Solutions
InfoSign(TM), a product jointly developed by NEC and NEC Engineering, enables a navigation service for pedestrians even underground and indoors where GPS is not available through use of a mobile phone employing Bluetooth(R)(*1)technology. In addition, information on shops and commercial goods can be provided to pedestrians. ROUTE BUILDERTM, software that enables creation of route information, will also be exhibited by NEC with NEC Software Chubu. This software enables creation of original maps connecting floor plans to public maps, resulting in realization of an original navigation system A GPS-based electronic system in a car or truck that provides a real time map of the vehicle's current location as well as step-by-step directions to a programmed destination. See GPS and vehicle tracking. for pedestrians from door to door.
2. Driver Support Service Solutions
NEC's probe information system supplies real-time information such as estimated travel times to drivers by analyzing the probe vehicle data collected by sensors on board moving vehicles. The system employs data mining technology that is designed to identify trends within a large amount of accumulated vehicle movement data and extrapolate extrapolate - extrapolation useful information. Working in real time, this system offers a more accurate and wider range of information than conventional car navigation See GPS. systems. NEC's automotive mobile router, which enables network connection of vehicles, will also be on display, as well as a system employing it that was developed with NEC's European laboratories, Car to Car communication system.
3. Solutions for Roadside Business
For more than 13 million users of electronic toll collection Electronic Toll Collection (ETC), an adaptation of military "identification friend or foe" technology, aims to eliminate the delay on toll roads. It is a technological implementation of a road pricing concept. (ETC ETC - ExTendible Compiler. Fortran-like, macro extendible. "ETC - An Extendible Macro-Based Compiler", B.N. Dickman, Proc SJCC 38 (1971). ) on-board equipment (OBE) in Japan, NEC & NEC Engineering, Ltd will provide equipment enabling customer relation management and vehicle entry/exit management by the end of March, 2007. The equipment will be realized by joining a small roadside device, specializing in the reading of the equipment number of the ETC OBE and the wireless call number, to servers in shops. This will be jointly exhibited by NEC and NEC Engineering Ltd. (Note: this system cannot be applied to ETC of toll roads.)
In recent years automotive safety protection systems have been drawing attention with an increase in measures to decrease the number of deaths caused by automobile accidents. NEC Electronics Corporation will exhibit a demonstration of the system LSI LSI: see integrated circuit.
(Large Scale Integration) Between 3,000 and 100,000 transistors on a chip. See SSI, MSI, VLSI and ULSI. IMAPCAR(R) (moving image recognition processor), which realizes real-time image recognition of white lines, cars and pedestrians toward safer driving.
NEC hopes to contribute to the progression of innovative intelligent transport systems through its attendance at the ITS World Congress and will continue to actively carry out research and development of innovative technologies.
