Advancing technologies of vehicles improve the safety performance of cars daily. Technologies such as power steering, wipers, and power windows have become commonplace. New technologies have been developed, such as object detection, (vehicles, pedestrians, and obstacles), to avoid collisions, and lane marking identification on the roads to prevent lane deviation. It's now also possible to lock/unlock vehicle doors and make an emergency calls automatically.
Asahi Kasei Microdevices, (AKM), will continue to contribute to autonomous driving, an emerging technology of the near future, enabling safer, more comfortable vehicles.
