DENSO Corporation’s newest innovative satellite R&D team in Israel will concentrate on advanced technologies such as automated driving, cybersecurity, and AI. Starting in April, DENSO’s R&D satellite will begin collaborating with local startups to pioneer new technologies.
The Israel team is the newest satellite in DENSO’s global R&D network located in key regions. DENSO distributes advanced R&D functions around the world and works with local universities, research institutions, startups, and various other partners to develop competitive products and technologies tailored to customers and regional characteristics.
DENSO recently announced an initiative to broaden R&D capabilities outside Japan, and in 2017, started satellite R&D activities in Helsinki, Finland focusing on creating advanced technologies and services.
DENSO’s satellite R&D activities in Israel build on the country’s surge in innovative technologies in fields spanning cybersecurity, telecommunications, AI, sensing, and software. Israeli companies and tech startups have an established track record for successful collaboration with companies overseas, and are expected to play a major role in global innovation across a number of fields.
DENSO said it will tap into Israel’s technology strengths to develop more competitive technologies, both internally and through collaborative research with local companies and universities, more quickly.
