Purpose and Overview

Research efforts at Yokosuka Research Park (YRP) have resulted in the development of Wireless Smart Utility Network (Wi-SUN) technologies and related application technologies. The Purpose of the WSN Promotion Committee is to strengthen the ICT industry and contribute to the promotion of international R&D collaborations and social ICT by encouraging the usage and further spread of Wi-SUN technologies and facilitating business development that seeks to utilize these technologies.

  1.  In collaboration with the National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT), engage in examination and consideration in the following areas, and implement support activities for business development based on these considerations: solutions for challenges regarding the use and commercialization of such technologies as Wi-SUN technologies, sensor network technologies and big data utilization technologies; strategies for international deployment of these technologies; and efforts to create a business hub at YRP.
  2.  As part of the abovementioned activities, in cooperation with member companies that have detailed knowledge of Wi-SUN technologies, work to develop support functions that will help member companies in their business development.
