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.
