Driver Support System Safety not only for drivers and passengers,
but also for pedestrians, towns, and all of society.

Patented technology distinguishes the height of obstacles to the front and rear, plus the height of objects on and above the road to help avoid danger.Millimeter Wave Radar (Long-Range/Short-Range)

Millimeter Wave Radar (Long-Range/Short-Range)

Millimeter Wave Radar combines radar and millimeter wave device technologies to function as the “eyes” of a vehicle. It measures the distance between one's own car and other vehicles and employs sensors that measure with high accuracy the distance of objects from the radar unit, their angle, and relative velocity. The Long-Range Millimeter Wave works together with vehicle controls that automate such functions as maintaining distance between vehicles and braking to mitigate collision damage. The Short-Range Millimeter Wave units on the front and rear of the vehicle are connected to the automated control of the brakes, headrests, seatbelts, and so on, to help avoid collisions or mitigate damage in the event of a collision.

closeup Developmental History

The development of advanced Millimeter Wave Radar to support collision prevention and safety systems dates back to the 1950s when FUJITSU TEN developed radar for marine use. In the 1970s, as the use of automobiles spread and the number of car accidents rapidly grew, we expanded our research to the automotive field.

In 1998, FUJITSU TEN was the first in the world to commercialize 60 GHz millimeter wave radar, used in dump trucks. Later, we succeeded in mass producing the technology for use in passenger cars, and began developing new products one after another, such as units for the front and rear of a vehicle. Additionally, we obtained patented technology for detecting the height of obstacles by radar. Our extensive R&D over the years and the results thereof have earned a solid reputation and our products are widely used today by a broad range of automakers.

Gives you a bird's-eye view from different angles around the vehicle. Very helpful at intersections with poor visibility, or when parking vehicles.Multi-Angle Vision™

Multi-Angle Vision™The periphery of the car as seen from above is displayed on the car navigation screen in a three-dimensional bird's-eye view. This system enhances safety when the driver is backing up or aids driver visibility while the vehicle is moving forward.

Records sound and video to support safe driving in ordinary cars as well as trucks and other commercial vehicles.Drive Recorder

Drive RecorderA sensor detects the shock from sudden braking or sharp turns and instantly records audio and video prior to and subsequent to the shock. Other features that boost awareness of safe driving include an alarm that sounds when accelerating suddenly or speeding.

Quickly detects unusual conditions in the car. A siren sounds intermittently to deter car theft.Vehicle Security System(VSS)

Vehicle Security System(VSS)Immediately detects an intrusion into the vehicle or unusual conditions. A warning siren goes off if a door is forced open or upon an impact to the window glass to deter auto theft.

Airbags inflate instantaneously and unerringly upon impact, helping to ensure the safety of the driver and passengers.Airbag Control Module ECU

Airbag Control Module ECUIn a collision, sensors are activated and an airbag will deploy from the steering wheel or dashboard and inflate to lighten the impact on the driver's or passenger's body. The system also assists seatbelt action.

In an emergency, the Emergency Answering Center is automatically notified, allowing for the quick rescue of the driver if ever necessary.Telematics Unit for the eCall Emergency Call System

Telematics Unit for the eCall Emergency Call SystemThis telematics unit for the eCall Emergency Call System *automatically notifies authorities of a car accident or other emergency when it occurs.
The system offers various functions such as automatic calling when a collision is detected, manual calling using a call button, data transmission, and the return of a call from the Emergency Answering Center.

Overview of eCall Emergency Call System

* FUJITSU TEN is working with Gemalto, the world leader in digital security, at the Yokosuka Research Park(YRP) to build Japan's first test platform for the eCall Emergency Call System. In Europe, the European Commission has recommended the introduction of a legal requirement for new cars starting in 2015 to be equipped with an “eCall” automated emergency response system. In Russia(where it is called ERA-GLONASS), such measures were announced in 2014.
