Please drop by our booth with solutions in response to various needs in addition to an assortment of communication modules, sensors, power supplies, and small general-purpose parts.

① Variations of LPWA (= Low Power Wide Area), which is the much-talked-about wireless communication technique enabling wide area communication with low consumption power, and the application proposals therefore
② RFID solutions which enable speedy and effective payment and inventory management in retail stores
③ Energy management system which supports optimization of the use of energy in the community
④ Small/high-performance parts which support IoT devices

Main content of the exhibition

(1)LPWA wireless communication techniques

LPWA, which can transmit data further and consume less power, has garnered attention. With the increasing need to detect/manage the position of things and people in a wide area in various scenes, we will conduct the following two demonstrations at our booth: detecting cars entering and leaving a parking area and controlling the availability of parking; and managing the presence information of a person. Moreover, we will introduce the features of each communication standard of LPWA along with communication modules which meet each standard.

Must-see items

・LoRa module
・Sigfox module

(2) RFID solution

We will recreate a fictitious retail store at our booth and conduct a demonstration of an RFID solution with which, upon selecting multiple products from the showcase and placing them in a shopping basket, checkout can be automatically carried out simply by placing the shopping basket on the cash register table. This speeds up/streamlines the checkout and cash register operations at the cash register in addition to proposing real time inventory management of the display.

Must-see items

・System solution
・Characteristic UHF tags such as a small tag and a tag corresponding to metal
・Simple RFID software

(3) Energy management system

In terms of energy, we are in the process of changing from an age in which we sell electricity to one of self-consumption. This time, at our Murata booth, we will introduce techniques to make best use of the features of our unique and high reliability battery and realize the optimization of energy consumption.

Must-see items

・Hybrid power conditioner
・Storage system (in cooperation with HVDC)
・Cloud-based remote monitor
・USB-PD Station

Besides these, we will have various solutions and parts that look ahead to an IoT society. For details, please see our specially established site.
