Integrate advantages to meet industry changes

In recent years, the automobile and motorcycle industries are undergoing subversive changes under the technological wave of “intelligence, interconnection, electrification, and sharing”. In order to meet future challenges, companies in the industry must achieve longer-term sustainable development by expanding their scale and resources to support the development of advanced technologies and comprehensive solutions required by the industry.

Against such a background, Hitachi Anstermo was born at the right time. The new company was formed by the merger of four companies, Hitachi Automotive Systems Co., Ltd., Keihin Co., Ltd., Showa Co., Ltd., and Nissin Industries Co., Ltd., and adopted a joint-stock operation model. Among them, Hitachi Manufacturing Co., Ltd. held 66.6% of the shares, Honda Technology Co., Ltd. Co., Ltd. holds a 33.4% stake. The new company has completed the business combination on January 1, 2021, officially opening a new chapter in global operations.

Looking forward to the future, providing mobility solutions

Hitachi Astemo takes the meaning of “Advanced Sustainable Technologies for Mobility” and takes “creating a safe, comfortable and sustainable mobile life through technologies that can contribute to an advanced and sustainable society” as its development concept. Committed to developing advanced and sustainable technologies and becoming a leading supplier of advanced mobility solutions for the automotive and motorcycle industries.

Combining the overall advantages of the four companies, Hitachi Anstemo will become a global carrier-level supplier, providing forward-looking mobility solutions for the automotive and motorcycle industries through its core businesses of powertrain systems, chassis systems, and advanced driver assistance systems. plan.

Hitachi Anstermo provides mobility solutions

The new company’s products for the automotive front-loading market include low-emission powertrain systems, high-efficiency drive motors, high-power inverters, suspension systems, electric power steering systems, braking systems, environmental recognition sensors, autonomous driving ECUs and based on OTA control software update technology, etc. In addition, the company’s business covers the motorcycle market, the automotive aftermarket, as well as railway vehicles and industrial machines.

Relying on the expanded enterprise scale and the technical strength of the four member companies, Hitachi Anstemo will continue to strengthen technological innovation in the fields of “intelligence, interconnection, electrification, and sharing”, while optimizing engineering resources and accelerating new generation technologies development, establishing a global leadership in comprehensive solutions integrating complex software and components.

Accelerate innovation and become an industry-leading supplier

With the launch of the new company, Hitachi Anstermo will stand at the forefront of technology, applying leading technologies and solutions to improve people’s lives and make the world a better place.

During the 2021 Shanghai Auto Show, Hitachi Anstemo exhibited a full range of leading products in core business areas such as electric powertrain systems, advanced chassis systems, autonomous driving/advanced driver assistance systems, and motorcycles, including new energy vehicles. on-board motor controllers, and binocular cameras for autonomous driving.

The on-board motor controller based on high-voltage and high-power density technology adopts the concept of modular design, adopts an overall high-performance cooling structure, uses a double-sided direct cooling power module to complete the compact design of the cooling liquid channel, and optimizes the pressure drop caused by the pin-fin structure. and thermal resistance for high cooling performance of the power module. Through the modular design that adapts to voltage and current requirements, the top current output capability is maintained, and the withstand voltage level is greatly improved (700-1200V). The compact structure without flanges and screws reduces the overall volume. 15%, achieving a generational leap in power density. Hitachi Anstemo’s on-board motor controller uses high-efficiency and mature IGBT technology to achieve the same performance as SIC under 800V high voltage at a time when the cost of SIC is still high.

Vehicle Motor Controller

Based on AI algorithms and complex environment recognition technology, Hitachi Anstemo realizes vehicle integrated control for safe and autonomous driving. And since 2004, it has been investing in the research and development of binocular cameras. Currently, it can provide integrated binocular vision solutions from imaging, image processing, object recognition processing, and vehicle control signal generation, which can realize ADAS functions such as ACC and AEB. The biggest advantage of the binocular camera is that it can identify any irregular objects and texture objects through the principle of parallax, and can detect the vehicle as a three-dimensional object and use it as a trigger for the control of the vehicle without seeing the overall outline of the vehicle. Candidate objects, thereby greatly improving the early detection of overtaking and blocking objects ahead, avoiding forward collisions, and providing reliable support for safe, safe and comfortable driving.

With the help of the international platform of the 2021 Shanghai Auto Show, Hitachi Anstemo Automotive Systems set sail in the Chinese market. In the future, Hitachi Anstemo will continue to enhance the social value, environmental value and economic value of the company by providing advanced mobility solutions that contribute to the improvement of safety, comfort and environmental protection. increase the value of enterprises and contribute to the sustainable development of the world.
