Midori Engineering Laboratory Co., Ltd.

Developing telemeter system available in harsh environment

From the experience of construction consultant, we develop and sell the devices that measure water level, rainfall, temperature, ground surface change, and transmit from remote place through the network same as IoT.
From 2012, we started business at Indonesia that sells the devices to measure water level and ground surface change of peatland. And now, the devices are adopted to PJTⅡ, the biggest dam management company, and in under substantiative experiment.

Sales Pitch

Field data transmission system SESAME
Low cost, can be installed anywhere, no need for wiring.
The device transmits the field data in 24 hours through mobile phone network.
Data stored on cloud server can be checked by your smart phone or PC anytime, anywhere. Choose the data items to analyse at your purpose. Automatic monitoring mode is available. The data can be downloaded as csv data.
We packaged all above services. And our product has 5 years continuous operation record.

Other presentation

[Company strength]
We develop equipment and software based on our experience as a construction consultant. We know what type of field data is required and how to securely obtain the data in a severe environment. We design and develop sensors and other devices, and construct the servers for transmitting the data. Therefore, we are able to provide a one-stop service for organizing a system that meets the customer’s expectations.

[Business description]
Our company operates the “SESAME” field data transmission systems. Field data is information recorded by various sensors arranged at outdoor points. Presently, our main system is the SESAME II-02d, which provides users with water level, rainfall amount, temperature, ground displacement and other field data measured by sensors using a battery (NiH2Pb deep cycle battery) charged by a 3–10 W capacity solar cell and transmitted to a cloud server through a cellular-phone data communication network and then to users via the Internet.
We have been conducting field investigations as a construction consultant while considering the best method for using and analyzing the obtained data. Accordingly, we have been developing equipment and analyzing software from the users’ viewpoint.
Our equipment that was installed in Indonesia in 2012 transmits important data on the water level, ground displacement, etc., in a tropical peat swamp on a 24-hour basis.
We are also participating in a JICA ODA Project involving the channel management of 250,000 ha of paddy fields operated by PJT II (Water Resource Management Public Corporation) which also manages the largest dam in Indonesia, and we are continuing to monitor the operation of the equipment installed on site.

Manufacturing and service industry

[Strength of products/technologies]
Our products present the results not only in domestic fields but also abroad (for more than three years in Indonesia), and operate reliably even in a harsh natural environment. Our system securely transmits data even from Indonesia, where although the cellular phone communication network is expanding, it is much less stable than in Japan. We employ standard parts for the peripheral components such as sensors so that the cost can be reduced, compatible parts can be easily obtained even in developing countries in the case of a failure, and the product life can also be extended in Japan.

[Representative's message]
We plan to develop sales channels in Indonesia through such activities as a needs survey and a feasibility and verification study in the “Support for Japanese Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) Overseas Business Development” project supported by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and JICA. The overseas market offers the advantage of attractive business results from the large-scale supply to Indonesia, which is highly appreciated by Japanese government offices. We expect that our newly developed SESAME III camera, which can transmit a large amount of data including image data and water level data by using a solar cell, will attract strong demand.

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
Dr. Hideki Takahashi, who is a graduate of Hokkaido University and has engaged in research on tropical peat in Indonesia for more than 20 years, is our advisor on the academic consideration of tropical peat fires. Overseas inquiries are handled by two special staff members and domestic matters are handled by two others in charge. We also have a sales agent in Indonesia. We are structuring our company system for overseas expansion supported by JICA and JETRO. We also plan to employ engineers who are skilled at the internet and electronic devices to train the next generation in our company.

[Market share/Ranking]
We estimate the market size of water level meters (with loggers) to be approximately 10,000 sets per year. We also estimate that approximately 20 companies provide a telemetering service using water level meters and a cellular-phone communication network. However, due to the unavailability of detailed statistical data, we are unable to estimate our market share or ranking.
We started our IoT service in 2006 and have achieved favorable results.

[Joint research and development]
In collaboration with Hokkaido University, we developed the SESAME II system for telemetering the groundwater level, ground displacement, rainfall amount, air temperature and water temperature at the peatland in Indonesia as part of the Science and Technology Research Partnership for Sustainable Development (SATREPS) project “Wild Fire and Carbon Management in Peat-Forest in Indonesia” supported by JICA and the Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST). We installed the equipment on site in 2012, and are monitoring its operation there.
