Electronics and technology giant Panasonic is jumping with both feet into the anticipated IR industry by consolidating on July 1 about thirty of its employees into an “IR Business Promotion Headquarters.”
Panasonic is aiming for deep and wide-ranging involvement in the Japanese IR industry, supplying both products and services including multi-language translation systems, facial-recognition and security systems, and even autonomous electric vehicles.
Some of these technologies Panasonic plans to showcase at the 2020 Olympics, using that event as a springboard to make sales and partnerships with IR consortiums.
Another showcase and development venue for related technologies is the Fujisawa Sustainable Smart Town which began operations in 2014.
