USE Co., Ltd.
Development of image processing technology for preventing the disturbance of light and suitable for outdoor use
We develop, manufacture, and sell general computer systems and also develop consigned systems. Using the PC image processing technology we have accumulated for 20 years, we can meet various image processing requirements. Our unique filtering technology greatly reduces errors attributable to the disturbance of light, such as sunlight, swaying trees, waves, and headlights. Our outdoor image sensor incorporating this technology differentiates us from other companies. We provide an automatic mobile monitoring system, Easy Track, which constantly monitors images from a monitoring camera by using a PC and detects only objects such as an intruder by analyzing the images closely. This will help create a society where people can live safely and securely.
[Company strength] Based on PC image processing technology accumulated for 20 years, we have developed technologies for meeting various image processing requests from customers. Upon being given a challenge, we will study the theory, develop a solution, and commercialize an actual product. Since about 20 years ago, we have been solving many issues with technical assistance from Dr. Chikahito Nakajima, a visiting researcher at MIT at the time and now chief researcher at the Central Research Institute of Electric Power Industry. [Business description] Our company develops general computer systems on consignment and has outstanding technology, particularly for image processing. We have accumulated unrivaled technologies. [Industry] Information services [Strength of products/technologies] For outdoor use, our unique image processing technology (filtering technology) greatly reduces errors attributable to the disturbance of light, such as swaying trees, waves, and headlights. We sell image sensors using the technology and other products developed in-house, and we also develop systems on consignment. In particular, our filtering technology for outdoor use has never been implemented by other companies. [Representative's message] Our company has sophisticated image processing technology and a 20-year history. To meet customer requests, we have been developing image processing technologies suitable for outdoor use. We developed a way of preventing the disturbance of light (sunlight, swaying trees, sea waves, pond ripples, etc.) that has never been solved by other companies. This feature differentiates us from other companies. In addition to security products, we are also handling railway related products, all of which withstand outdoor environments. In the world today, image processing could be used in innumerable fields, but its application has been limited because image processing itself is not well known. Thus, image processing has great potential. In partnership with many others, we intend to help create a society where people can live safely and securely. [Company structure for market development/overseas expansion] Both in and outside Japan, we are greatly dependent on assistance from the Tokyo Metropolitan Small and Medium Enterprise Support Center which certifies our company. We will expand sales mainly through agencies which have strong connections with customers in each field. We will also publicize information through our website. [Market share/Ranking] The market share of our automatic mobile monitoring system (Easy Track) is unknown but the system is highly reputed for its top quality in Japan. The wait time automatic measurement service has already been implemented for JAL at Haneda Airport. [Awards and media coverage] [Awards] [Media] The wait time automatic measurement service was broadcast in JAL’s TV commercial and also in a news program on the network of TV Asahi.
