March. 31, 2014

FUJITSU TEN LIMITED (Headquarters in Kobe, Hyogo Prefecture, President and Representative Director: Takashi Shigematsu) is proud to announce that we will open "Tokyo Business Office" on April 1, 2014, by renewing the R&D site that has led in-vehicle telematics(*1) R&D. "Tokyo Business Office" will accelerate the development of software for constructing globally-available next-generation in-vehicle platforms, utilizing various functions for advanced development.
The R&D site has already launched some new business issues since the start of its operation in April 2011. This time, we decided to newly open "Tokyo Business Office" which is enlarged in structure and can strengthen cooperative relation with FUJITSU group companies such as FUJITSU LIMITED and FUJITSU LABORATORIES LTD. so as to further powerfully accelerate our strategy for the growth of a whole group.

Strengthening of cooperation also with R&D site in United States, "Silicon Valley Creative Square"
-For structuring base for taking advantage of Big Data, and accelerating R&D of ADAS-relevant technology-

The new "Tokyo Business Office" will strengthen cooperation with FUJITSU group companies, promote alliance with ICT companies having high technology, and further strengthen cooperation also with the R&D site in United States, "Silicon Valley Creative Square (SCS)," which was established in November 2012.
The SCS in Silicon Valley that attracts cutting-edge technology and companies carries an important role of collecting and analyzing information, establishing partnerships with hi-tech companies, and further feeding back the achievements to Japan.
"Tokyo Business Office" will open the way to create business for providing a new added value to customers through such cooperative activities, specifically constructing business base for taking advantage of automobile-relevant Big Data, collecting information, and researching and developing ADAS(*2)-relevant technology.

FUJITSU TEN group has an advantage of having both of information device business for vehicle (e.g. navigation systems) and control device business (e.g. engine control ECUs(*3)). We set the slogan, ‘Try Evolution for the Next -Toward new TEN-,’ on the 40th anniversary of our founding in October 2012. Now we are making efforts for ‘business evolution to become a system supplier’ so as to achieve the slogan while taking this advantage.

"Tokyo Business Office" will also carry a vital role of the action.
