CEATEC JAPAN 2018

Murata showcased a variety of products and technologies at CEATEC JAPAN 2018,
a CPS/IoT exhibition was held at Makuhari Messe in Chiba Prefecture.
The theme of Murata’s presence was “Enabling technologies for IoT world”.
We provided a practical and valuable introduction for Murata’s products and technologies supporting our IoT world, solutions that only Murata can offer.

Stage program

We have two types of presentation. One is the introduction of our booth highlight. Another is the technical presentation.
The introduction of our booth highlight will be held each hour by MC, and the technical presentation will be also held each hour by Murata engineers or our business partners 15 min. after the introduction of our booth highlight.  The introduction of  our booth highlight  will run for 15 min,  and the technical presentation will run for 10 min.

※ Presentation theme & starting time may be changed without notice.

Must-see items

NAONA sensing data platform

NAONA is a data sensing platform that determines and measures information that people perceive intuitively, such as the mood or excitement level at some venue, location or event.This information is provided in a tangible form as actionable data. Building on last year’s conceptual exhibition, we will show how versatile the solution is at offices, kindergartens, restaurants, and elsewhere. Devices that bring spatial sensing to life will also be introduced.

  • One-on-one meeting at the booth
    This demonstration will be , show the level of familiarity between the participants in a one-on-one interaction, based on tempo, volume, and values representing emotions, as extracted from audio data.
  • Sensing hardware
    The data is obtained from sensors that acquire a variety of physical information and can be easily connected.
RFID solutions

Murata is a one-stop solution provider for RFID systems. Here, we will introduce how Murata RFIDs are used and the comprehensive solutions available, which combine everything from hardware to software.

  • Preventing counterfeit trafficking and supporting traceability 
    Distribution of goods tracked by embedding IC tags in the merchandise is an effective way to prevent counterfeiting and manage distribution. Sunglasses and rings with embedded Murata IC tags will be demonstrated at our booth.
  • Streamlining product management by using RFID in inventory and inspection
    With RFID systems, multiple packaging boxes can be scanned at once, and it is easy to manage inventory, as well as inspection of goods shipped and received. At the Murata booth, we will demonstrate the uses of handheld readers that can streamline your process.
Wi-Fi based sensing solutions

Working with U.S.-based Origin Wireless, we are developing space- and object-sensing applications using radio waves. Among these, solutions for detecting positions indoors will be introduced at the booth. Services of all kinds that rely on position/location information have surged in recent years, and needs are growing in detecting positions of people and things not only outdoors but also indoors at factories, shopping centers, and other establishments This system makes it possible through high-precision position detection to detect environmental changes in real-time through changes in refection of Wi-Fi radio waves.

  • Indoor detection demonstration (Origin Wireless)
  • Wi-Fi communication modules
LPWA wireless communication technology

Along with the high-speed, low-latency communication of 5G networks, LPWA is also attracting interest as a way to transmit data faster with lower power consumption in IoT applications, where it may be used in automatic meter reading for basic residential water or gas service, monitoring and promoting active safety for factory equipment, or a variety of needs in many other situations. Besides LoRaWAN and Sigfox, developments involving other new communication specifications such as NB-IoT and LTE-M*1 are also gaining momentum and attracting more attention. The Murata booth will describe the advantages of various LPWA specifications and introduce communication modules designed for each one.
*1: Also known as LTE Cat. M1 or eMTC.

  • NB-IoT communication modules
  • LTE-M (LTE Cat. M1 or eMTC) communication modules
Energy management

High-performance energy storage systems address many social needs, whether in applications for renewable energy such as solar power generation, peak shifting, or back-up in case of emergencies.

The Murata booth will introduce energy storage systems employing our olivine lithium ion iron phosphate rechargeable batteries, which contribute to optimal energy use and enable exceptional safety, long life, and fast charging and discharging.

  • Residential all-in-one storage system and HVDC storage unit
  • Storage module panel for power/industrial applications
Fatigue/Stress monitor, for visualization of unseen fatigue

This Murata solution overcomes the difficulty of providing an objective assessment of people’s fatigue or stress levels by displaying the user’s autonomic nerve balance and deviation using autonomic nerve measurement*2 from vital sign data and big-data analysis. A demonstration at the Murata booth will show analysis results after measurement by the fatigue/stress monitor, as displayed on a mobile device.
