Kyocera is to open a research centre that will focus on the development of autonomous vehicles and Internet of Things in the city of Yokohama, Japan.
The research centre will integrate resources of three similar facilities in Tokyo which develop software and systems for the automotive industry.
Hideo Tanimoto, president of Kyocera, says the company is hoping to “accelerate joint projects with outside partners to develop new businesses”.
The new facility is in Minato Mirai, a seaside urban area which is said to attract smart start-ups and large enterprises with advanced technologies.
