Fiscal 2014 Topics

New Products and Technologies

Launched the WS1-QB scanner, a 35-gram scanner that the user wears on their head, enabling them to scan bar codes and QR codes without touching the scanner.

First in the world to develop a robot arm that moves pieces in shogi (Japanese chess) based on commands from computer software. The robot arm is based on the VS-060 six-axis articulated robots, which offer the world's highest speed and precision in their class. This robot arm was featured in the Third Computer vs. Player Shogi Competition.

Business Expansion and New Companies

Decided to merge DENSO WAVE Incorporated, which develops and sells automatic data capture devices and industrial robots and other systems and devices, and DENSO ELECS Co., Ltd., which manufactures products developed by DENSO WAVE, in January 2015 in order to further increase our competitiveness in the industrial equipment field.
