Anytime, Anywhere, Anything: Delivering a More Connected Future

What kinds of new changes will advances in communication technologies bring to our lives? Augmented reality (AR) powered by ultra-high-speed, high-bandwidth communications will further accelerate the fusion of the real and the digital worlds, while vehicle-to-everything (V2X) communications will allow for two-way interaction between next-generation automobiles and public infrastructures. Once drones and robots are connected in the near future, they will have the potential to generate unprecedented innovation.

Operation management systems utilizing next-generation mobile communications are essential for the safe operation of drones for distribution. Ultra-high-speed and high-bandwidth communications will enable the monitoring and remote control of multiple drones in real time.
TDK’s chip antennas are compact, high-performance, and multiband-responsive. The applications of chip antennas includes smartphones, wireless devices for vehicles and base stations, navigation, Bluetooth, wireless LAN, and supporting wireless communications in various equipment.

The practical implementation of drone delivery services is now an imminent reality. TDK’s six-axis motion sensors are mounted on drones, where they perform high-precision measurements of changes in acceleration and barometric pressure. In this way, these sensors contribute to detection of accurate positional information and maintenance of postural stability by these devices.

TDK is also manifesting its unique strengths in settings involving the transmission and receipt of telecommunications data. Beyond 5G will facilitate simultaneous connection of multiple devices at large capacities and at ultra-high speeds. This will reduce time lags in data transmission to lower levels than previously seen. The core components in this are TDK’s array antennas. Also referred to as massive antenna, these integrate 4,096 antenna elements into a small chip approximately 3cm2 in size.

TDK will actively expand the possibilities for future transportation networks, including autonomous driving, on the twin fronts of telecommunications technologies for drones and automobiles, and development of the high-performance antennas which will enable Beyond 5G.
