How can we bring about better well-being and security through sound detection?

What We Are Looking For

We usually hear every sound to judge the situation. Outdoors, the sounds of cars, buildings, nature, indoors, the sounds of people talking, alarms, and the sounds of machines. In addition to the sound information from the MEMS microphone, it may be used as more accurate and useful information by combining it with other sensors such as GPS and cameras. We believe that people's lives will be safer and more comfortable if sound information can be easily obtained.

How can we ensure better healthcare through sound detection?

What We Are Looking For

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the world. People used to be able to move freely, but now it is not possible with highly infectious viruses. This has significantly changed people's daily lives as well as from a business perspective. In terms of medical healthcare, "telemedicine", which was not allowed in Japan until the pandemic, has been legally permitted by the Japanese government, and efforts to utilize telemedicine will accelerate nationwide in the future.

Nisshinbo believes that telemedicine can be enhanced by collecting the sound that a person emits from the body with a MEMS microphone and processing the signal so that it can be transmitted.
