A model of Panasonic`s booth at the Electronica.
Panasonic Industry presents its new product portfolio at the Electronica in Munich at booth B5-564. Current trends from the Mobility, Living Space, and Business sectors will be on display.
Since its repositioning last year, Panasonic's product portfolio has ranged from electronic components, devices, and modules to complete solutions, manufacturing systems, services, and training.
Intelligent transport systems are gaining ground in the mobility sector. Social, economic, and ecological sustainability play an important role here. Panasonic will present the Hyperloop transport concept and other projects in the fields of electromobility and transport. The Hyperloop project is a worldwide project initiated by SpaceX founder Elon Musk. There is also an international SpaceX Hyperloop Pod Competition, in which the different development teams compete against each other. In cooperation with Panasonic, the Technical University of Munich (TUM) developed the Warr Hyperloop Pod in the course of the project and participated in the competition with it. This high-speed train moves through a tube with a partial vacuum at supersonic speed and could be the means of transportation of the future. The TUM team won this year's competition in California with the Hyperloop Pod.
The Warr Hyperloop Pod can be seen at the Electronica booth. It will also show how Panasonic's portfolio of sensors, resistors, and relays helped the team implement the project. Other new products include passive components such as resistors and capacitors as well as integrated electrical applications such as airbags and braking systems. Input devices such as radios and navigation devices will also be on display.
In the Living Space section, Panasonic presents its products, components, and sensors for the Internet of Things. These are specifically intended for energy efficiency and energy saving. So-called Amorton solar cells can provide different voltages and are therefore suitable for various applications. But sensors such as passive infrared motion sensors are also in the focus. The new applications will be shown using a specially developed »IoT Workbench«.
The importance of telecommunications infrastructure for data transmission, especially in industrial automation, is growing. In the factory of the future, cyberphysical systems will become more important, in which computing, networking, and physical processes are integrated. Newcomers to the market and medical technology organizations are using these advances to provide new applications for the healthcare sector. Panasonic's latest devices and components meet these business requirements.
For power engineering requirements, Panasonic has developed batteries with improved charging characteristics and high performance transistors. New capacitors contribute to longer battery life and a faster charging process. Other components include relays, connectors, and heat supply solutions.
