Title:Display Innovation
– Toward Hyperreality Display Era –

The new display technology, such as augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) including Google Glass and Occulas Rift, which floats or projects pictures and information in the real space attract attention. The new virtual space experiences that such kind of innovative displays brings can create the completely new market. To build up such a virtual space in the human brain, the research and development of the display technology to let you feel a feeling of depth covering up the whole human field of vision are the most important. To measure a feeling of human depth, we developed the dome type display which had fields of vision more than 160 degrees equivalent to the human field of vision as a wide-field display and we found that a feeling of depth for only one eye was extremely better than that for both eyes in the case of automobile navigation.

So, we developed a monocular head-up display(WARP) for automobile and demonstrated that we could convey navigator information of more than 100m ahead intuitively exactly in the real space by using a virtual moving 3D navigator arrow.
I mainly introduce not only the WARP conveying information to the driver of the car directly and precisely but also an augmented reality wearable terminal “AR glass” and immersive head-up display with more than 140 degrees FOV for medical MRI.

Title: Pervasiveness of IoT in Consumer Electronics

Internet of Things (IoT) is currently one of the hot topic nowadays, not only by technologist and developers but also by economist and Government. IoT together with big data analytics is being used to improve productivity, reduce wastage and eventually provide solutions for a better living. This is achieved by collecting, processing and analysing various sources of data. The implementation has become so pervasive and currently being used in various sectors and industries, from smart city, agriculture, healthcare, manufacturing and others. This includes consumer electronics. This talk is about how IoT and its impact in the consumer electronics.
