Concept for Flex Corner Module
The Concept for Flex Corner Module was born from our R&D efforts toward creating new technologies for a future abundant in electric and autonomous vehicles. Three ground-breaking technologies have been incorporated within this concept:
1.Wheel Hub Motor Fit: A next-gen vehicle drive system that shifts the vehicle motor to inside the wheel
2.Parallel Link type Active Suspension: A suspension system with 5 independently moving actuators enabling optimal suspension geometry throughout
3.Electric Brake Booster: An essential component for braking in electric vehicles
This unique combination of technology covers all types of vehicle movement (driving, steering, and braking) and improves stability and comfort, thus giving rise to a motion that feels closer to the heart.
Parallel Link type Active Suspension
The Parallel Link type Active Suspension system combines NSK’s world-class ball screw technology with a motor to enable a range of motion so free you might consider it a living being. In addition to standard left-right turning, this system can adjust the wheels to have a negative camber angle, which allows for greater stability at high speeds. Also, the actuators are able to be repositioned (extend, contract, etc.), making it possible to change the vehicle wheelbase. The shorter the distance between front and rear wheels, the tighter a vehicle can turn, which also makes it easier to parallel park. Parallel Link type Active Suspension can reduce vibrations while driving, and delivers a much wider range of motion through all four wheels.
Wheel Hub Motor Fit provides driving force from within the wheel itself. It is a practical application of technology that NSK crafted from scratch one step at a time. There are many benefits to miniaturizing the motor and embedding it directly into the wheel. NSK’s technology features a two motor system, which can be controlled in tandem to change gears through a mini internal transmission mechanism. This allows the motors to provide power or speed as the situation demands. The driving force applied to each tire can be controlled individually, allowing greater control over the vehicle, thereby improving collision avoidance capabilities and increasing vehicle stability. NSK is continuing development to further reduce the size and adapt the technology to be suitable for a broad range of vehicles.

ExerRide Seat
Created with a concept of “get healthy while driving,” this seat detects a passenger’s physique and center of gravity when he or she sits down and redistributes pressure from the parts of the body touching the seat in order to correct the passenger's posture. Additionally, a module in the seat cushion facilitates core exercises based upon the motion of the vehicle and the passenger's physical data. With this function to promote exercise, passengers can mitigate a lack of daily exercise and enjoy the benefits of an improved posture and recovery from fatigue.
Comfort Zone (seat)
An example of a brand-new mental approach, this vehicle interior aims to relieve passengers of stress and give them the sensation that they are floating. All passengers need to do to experience exceptional comfort in this interior is sit in a seat. As an additional feature, a passenger's heart rate is displayed as a means of assessing his or her current level of relaxation.
Smart Seat for Motorcycles
We have addressed problems experienced by motorcycle riders, such as difficulty mounting a seat that is too high or knee discomfort when riding on the highway, by designing a seat that automatically adjusts to provide the optimal seat firmness and height when mounting and dismounting or while riding. Although we can't offer test drives inside the Motor Show venue, visitors to the booth can still experience the merits of this seat by donning VR goggles.
Manned Spacecraft Seat Concept
We present a quantitative safety method for human space flight--developed through an industry-government-academia project headed by Tokyo University, JAXA and TS TECH--designed help astronauts, many of whom are Japanese, return safely to Earth. Using in-house passenger safety assessment technology for vehicle collisions, we established a quantitative safety method for human space flight based on numerical simulations of impact during landing following reentry. We are exhibiting a prototype model of a spacecraft seat created using this method.

Anyone can install correctly! Auto-ISOFIX child car seat.
Background:Even child car seat with high safety performance will not demonstrate their safety performance unless it can be installed correctly.
We propose the safety feature that reduces the installation errors by Auto-Installing child car seat.

To install, push the ISOFIX bars to the seat. Wait for the bard to be pushed into the seat, and leg support to be extended to the floor. All these processes will be run automatically.

To detach, place hand over the sensor, the leg support rises and unlatches the ISOFIX bars automatically.

New technology:Auto ISOFIX & leg support extension mechanism, Installation & Uninstallation confirm sensor, Non-touch sensor
(Patent pending).

Hydrogen production equipment
We have developed the prototype device to create hydrogen at low-cost, ecological with high efficiency from ammonia.
Plasma Membrane Reactor is structured to produce high-purity hydrogen from ammonia using plasma which allows the process to be done in the room-temperature, ordinary pressure and non-catalyzed. The proto-type is made up of plasma membrane reactor and plasma generating high voltage power source. The plasma membrane reactor produces hydrogen that is 99.999% pure. The hydrogen pulled out from the device was supplied to fuel cell and the generation was successfully done. The process will sure smooth out the storage of ammonia and supply the hydrogen wherever and whenever it is needed. This device is highly expected to widespread in several areas. For instance, for industrial purpose, residential fuel cell generators and fuel cell vehicles(FCEV).
