Usuda Research Institute & Systems Corporation
The world's highest 24-axis IoT robot sensor “U-BRAIN RS-01v2”
Our company developed “U-BRAIN RS-01v2”, which is the world’s highest 24-axis IoT robot sensor. Recently the commercialization of IoT and wearable devices is underway worldwide. We are trying to approach and work with domestic and overseas device makers to promote adoption of our product in these devices. Our business mainly consists of manufacturing electronic devices with embedded gyroscopes and various sensors (for detecting acceleration, geomagnetism, light, sound, temperature, barometric pressure, humidity, and touch). We also develop and produce related software (firmware, middleware, applications) and content.
- Introduction of business, product technology, etc.
Business description and features
[Business description] Our main business is manufacturing electronic devices using various sensors such as gyroscope, barometric pressure, acceleration, geomagnetism, light, sound, temperature, humidity, Touch, and creating and selling software and content. In August 2005, retired from Sony Corporation early, founded Usuda Research Institute, Ltd., and started developing its own products with support from the Incubation Facility (MINATO Incubation Center). [Industry] Electronic equipment manufacturing and information processing [Company strength] Since 2002, Sony has applied for more than 40 patents, and since its founding, it has acquired 24 ordinary licenses and sub-licenses, including 4 in-house patents. For this reason, it is a great strength to develop a unique business strategy because it is not necessary to rely on other companies in terms of development, technology and rights when selling or providing our products and technologies to other companies.
Overview of products and technologies
[Strength of products / technologies]It supports a wide range of hardware and software products such as motion sensor bodies, chassis-assembled motion sensors, sensor boxes for development for IoT and wearables. In addition to developing the world's best 24-axis IoT robot sensor “U-BRAIN RS-01v2”, we are developing middleware and applications vertically. When installed in various IoT devices and wearable devices that have been put to practical use worldwide this year, it has unrivaled strengths in terms of development, technology and rights. [Company structure for market development / overseas expansion]Currently, we ask the coordinator companies and organizations that have pipes with domestic and foreign companies to adopt the world's best 24-axis IoT robot sensor “U-BRAIN RS-01v2” to domestic and foreign IoT device manufacturers and wearable device manufacturers, etc. I will work.
[Representative's message] In-house developed, the world's highest 24-axis IoT robot sensor “U-BRAIN RS-01v2” is built into IoT devices and wearable devices that have been put into practical use worldwide this year, and wirelessly connected to various IoT devices and wearable devices. By doing so, we will achieve the next generation cloud business and realize the beginning of a new era.
[Company strength] Our president has applied for more than 40 patents since 2002, when he was still with Sony, and obtained 19 non-exclusive licenses and sublicenses before establishing this company. This is why we do not need to depend on others when we sell or provide products and technologies to other companies concerning development, technology, or rights. The fact that we can freely develop business strategies is a great strength. [Business description] Our business mainly consists of manufacturing electronic devices with embedded gyroscopes and various sensors (acceleration, geomagnetism, light, sound, temperature). We also develop and distribute related software and content. Our president took early retirement from Sony in August 2005, set up our company, and started to develop original products with support from SME Support Japan’s Minato Incubation Center. [Industry] Electronic device manufacturing; information processing [Strength of products/technologies] Our company is proceeding with independent development of U-BRAIN MicroSmart, which is the world’s smallest and lightest (2 g) 3D motion sensor. At the same time our company also develops dedicated middleware and applications in a vertically integrated manner. We have an overwhelming advantage in terms of development, technology, and licensing when it comes to adopting products for various wearable devices that will be commercialized in 2014. [Representative's message] Our company’s original product the U-BRAIN MicroSmart is the world’s smallest and lightest (2 g) 3D motion sensor. We aim to realize a next-generation cloud business and open up a new era. This will be done by incorporating this device into the wearable devices that will distributed worldwide starting in 2014 and connecting them wirelessly with ICT devices. [Company structure for market development/overseas expansion] We are still in the preparatory phase, but we are working with coordinating companies and organizations that have strong connections with overseas firms. This is being done to encourage overseas wearable device makers to adopt our U-BRAIN MicroSmart, which is the world’s smallest and lightest (2 g) 3D motion sensor, in their products. [Awards and media coverage] [Media] Our company and products have been mentioned approximately in 20 newspaper articles, 8 TV programs, 5 magazine articles, and 16,000 Internet media articles, including overseas. [Authorization/Certification] Strategic Core Technology Advancement Program approval by the Small and Medium Enterprise Agency (2011); Tokyo Trial Ordering Authorization Product certification (2012). [Joint research and development] Operating Agreement with NHK Science & Technology Research Laboratories and 4 other projects. [Transaction form] Sales (hardware, firmware, middleware, applications); chassis design; prototype development; licensing contracts; joint development; consigned development; and so on. [Transaction terms] Immediate payment upon delivery and after receiving inspection. [Main Clients / Business History (domestic)] NHK Science & Technology Research Laboratories (operating agreement/product sales); NTT Communication Science Laboratories (product sales); National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (product sales), and many others. [Exhibition History/Information] Sensor Exhibition (5 times); CEATEC (3 times); other exhibitions (7 times); plans to participate in exhibitions 3 times in 2014.
