Leading Global Technology
with Creativity and Technical Prowess

Development

The environment surrounding the automotive industry is changing rapidly on a global scale, including tighter regulations on CO2 emissions and the development of autonomous driving.
In order to swiftly adapt to these changes, Calsonic Kansei pays careful attention to global trends and the inclinations of our customers, and continues to reflect these in our development strategy with a view of five to ten years ahead.
To create new value in the fields defined in our development strategy, we resolutely work on development of vehicle level systems, parts and element technologies. In addition to Japan, we have established R&D centers in the United States, Europe, China and the broader Asian region to provide a global development capability that satisfies our customers, including concurrent engineering with automotive manufacturers.
This is enabled by CAD/CAE using 3D data, as well as a global network that allows the latest technologies to be used anywhere in the world. We actively promote the introduction of various development methods such as MBE so as to optimize development and improve product quality.

Cabin Innovation

Cabin Innovation

The cabin is an important space where people spend their time when traveling in vehicles. Creating a comfortable space and ensuring safe driving are realized with bringing together everything that can be seen, touched, and felt. Calsonic Kansei takes on the challenge of cabin innovation by not only balancing safety and comfort, but also bringing joy and exhilaration to our customers through the creation of four values. These values are Comfort: a comfortable space; Ease: displays and controls that are easy to understand and easy to use while maintaining smooth driving; Perceived Quality: interiors with premium quality that can be seen and felt; and Emotive: such as meters that can inspire the driver.

Energy Management

Energy is the driving force behind vehicles, and not even a drop of fuel can be wasted. With the spread of electric vehicles, more and more electrical energy is being stored in vehicles. It is important to use this energy as effectively as possible to conserve our global environment. Calsonic Kansei contributes to the realization of a sustainable society through energy management that keeps energy waste at a minimum while maintaining a safe and comfortable cabin. We do this by being aware of all the energy: thermal energy generated by powertrains, electric energy stored in batteries, and climate control energy consumed by air conditioners.
