Ensuring Safe and Secure Mobility

Advancements in autonomous driving, advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), and environmental awareness are pushing the automotive industry toward a major transformation.
In addition to supporting safer vehicles, Kyocera is developing technologies and products for a safe and secure mobility society, including smart transportation infrastructure.

World's First* Headlight Sensor System Combining White and Near-Infrared Light

Automotive Night Vision

We are developing a system that accurately senses and displays hazardous objects to drivers to support safe driving at night, in rain, fog, or other environments that reduce visibility. Our system integrates the world’s first headlight to combine white and near-infrared light with onboard RGB-IR sensors to help overcome common visibility impediments. Our original fusion recognition AI technology enables highly accurate object detection from captured image data.

Improving Safety and Assisting Drivers

Camera Modules

High reliability and advanced optical sensing help enhance vehicle safety and convenience.

In-Vehicle Millimeter-Wave Radar Substrates

Substrates with embedded antennas for obstacle detection.

Head-Up-Display LCDs

Vehicle speed and other critical driving data are projected above the dashboard. High-definition display technology makes the projection clear and vivid.

Automotive Connectors

Kyocera develops electronic connectors for specific automotive requirements, including a high-reliability floatingstructure board-to-board connector that absorbs misalignments and vibrations.

Environmentally Friendly High-Performance Automotive Components

Oxygen-Sensor Heaters

Our sensor heaters reach operating temperature just seconds after a cold engine starts, ensuring cleaner exhaust by allowing emissions sensors to function almost immediately.

LED Packages

Ultra-compact, low-profile, surface-mountable packages are ideal for high-brightness automotive LEDs. They also offer high heat dissipation properties.

EV Components

Our high-reliability ceramic components are used for motor-drive and charging current switching in electric vehicles and other applications.
