We introduce our research and development initiatives on the Next-Generation Network, aimed at further enhancing the features of 5G such as "ultra-high speed," "ultra-low latency," and "massive device connectivity," as well as going beyond the framework of traditional mobile communication and transforming communication networks into"social infrastructure".
"HAPS (High Altitude Platform Station)" is a new communication infrastructure that realizes a society in which people and things all over the world are connected. Learn more about our research and development activities on HAPS which can provide high-speed and high-quality communication over a wide area from the stratosphere.
Higher performance batteries are required for society to be able to widely adopt next-generation technologies such as HAPS, drones, and flying cars. Our focus is on the development of next-generation batteries that can meet these expectations. Learn more about our research and development activities in this area.
New mobility services such as "MaaS (Mobility as a Service)" and "autonomous driving" are attracting attention as solutions to various social issues related to mobility and transportation. We would like to introduce our research and development activities aimed at promoting the widespread adoption of autonomous driving services throughout society to realize the future transportation infrastructure.
In recent years, XR technologies such as VR (virtual reality) and AR (augmented reality) have been utilized in various fields. In order to promote the widespread adoption of XR technologies, our research and development activities are focused on technologies that support next-generation contents. Learn more about our activities aimed to stimulate innovation in the media field and solve social issues by integrating various advanced technologies beyond the field of communication.
General-purpose quantum computers have the potential to solve many social issues once they are put into practical use. In addition to our research on how to utilize them, we also introduce our research on next-generation security technologies including PQC (Post-Quantum Cryptography) and QKD (Quantum Key Distribution) aimed at realizing a secure network society in the quantum era.
