Must-see items

LPWA wireless communication techniques

LPWA, which can transmit data further and consume less power, has garnered attention. With the increasing need to detect/manage the position of things and people in a wide area in various scenes, we will conduct the following two demonstrations at our booth: detecting cars entering and leaving a parking area and controlling the availability of parking; and managing the presence information of a person. Moreover, we will introduce the features of each communication standard of LPWA along with communication modules which meet each standard.

Smart factory monitoring system - Implementation of wireless module & sensor technology
Murata will enable monitoring of factory equipment and reduction of energy consumption at factory by introducing Multi-Radio Protocol Gateway and battery operated wireless sensor node.  Wireless implementation will free you from complicated installation process and reduce the installation cost.  The system will enable centralized management of the factory from remote location.
RFID solution
We will recreate a fictitious retail store at our booth and conduct a demonstration of an RFID solution with which, upon selecting multiple products from the showcase and placing them in a shopping basket, checkout can be automatically carried out simply by placing the shopping basket on the cash register table. This speeds up/streamlines the checkout and cash register operations at the cash register in addition to proposing real time inventory management of the display.

Energy management system
In terms of energy, we are in the process of changing from an age in which we sell electricity to one of self-consumption. This time, at our Murata booth, we will introduce techniques to make best use of the features of our unique and high reliability battery and realize the optimization of energy consumption.
Business Concept of a Platform that Realizes "Virtual Sensing"
Introducing the business concept of "NAONA," a platform that realizes "virtual sensing."
"NAONA" is a platform that senses spatial information that has not yet been digitalized, such as an area's mood/excitement, or the intimacy between people. This spatial information is visualized into data and provided by the “NAONA” platform.
