To fulfill the promise of Hitachi’s Social Innovation Business, Hitachi has a number of use cases in key industries such as public safety, healthcare, IoT and autonomous driving that illustrate the company’s commitment to be an innovation partner in the IoT era.
Smart Spaces And Video Intelligence
Today, just over 50% of people live in cities globally, but many analysts expect that by 2050 this will reach 75%. In addition, technological disruption is changing business models and the way we experience our cities, schools and other public areas. To address growth and strain, cities and the organizations that support them must be smarter and more efficient in their operations, enhance customer experience and keep people safe. Public spaces and private enterprises today often have security cameras. Thanks to video intelligence this data can now generate insights and proactive alerts for transportation and transit, retail and customer experience, industrial operations, as well as security and public safety. Hitachi Smart Spaces and Video Intelligence is an end-to-end, intelligent and adaptable solution that generates new data, stores and manages it effectively and integrates data from many sources. It analyzes the data through computer vision, machine learning and business intelligence to provide insight into urban, commercial and industrial areas to make organizations more effective and improve our quality of life.

Think you’re a good driver? Well, your car might just be better at it. With an average of 20,000 components in today’s automobile, most of them potential sources of data – software, data analytics and digital technologies are becoming as crucial to car design as engines and interiors. Hitachi Automotive Systems Americas is creating new technologies for next-generation automobiles, including tools that assist autonomous vehicles in parking, lane changing and braking. These systems also provide analytics that can help automakers measure wear and tear, and alert car owners of the need for maintenance. Hitachi is also an Affiliate Member of the University of Michigan’s Mcity, the world’s first connected and driverless car testing facility. Mcity simulates a broad range of complex driving environments and allows users to test new technologies in a variety of challenging situations. Hitachi leverages Mcity to advance its development of connected car and autonomous driving technologies that can contribute to vehicle value, safety and comfort. So, on that next road trip, you may just want to let go of the wheel and enjoy the ride.
