Driving the Future of Mobility

Once a futuristic dream, autonomous driving is now a reality that is rapidly reshaping the transportation industry. At the forefront of this evolution is Hitachi America Research and Development Division (R&D), which is developing world-leading autonomous mobility technologies to make travel safer, more efficient and comfortable, and less expensive.

Hitachi America R&D has expertise in the entire mobility ecosystem, including the power sector, traffic infrastructure, transportation and smart cities. Our broad experience gives us unique insights into business and consumer needs — and the expertise to eventually develop a single platform for autonomous mobility based on an automated cooperative infrastructure.

Driving the Future of Mobility

In the automotive sector, we are working with Hitachi partners and leading manufacturers worldwide to develop innovative solutions, including sensor fusion and vehicle control algorithms, advanced electronic control unit (ECU), occupant monitoring systems, and more. In addition, we are working on vehicle maintenance, operations and performance, which has already led to delivery of numerous mobility solutions across three categories:

  • Descriptive analytics to monitor performance and better understand driver behavior
  • Predictive analytics to estimate and forecast vehicle failures, driver performance, fleet demands and more
  • Prescriptive analytics to reduce failure cost, optimize maintenance and make smart recommendations that lower costs and boost performance

Through these efforts and more, Hitachi America R&D is ensuring that autonomous mobility solves both societal and business challenges — and does so as safely and efficiently as possible.
