TOKYO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Japan’s leading electronic component manufacturer, Alps Electric Co., Ltd., (Alps Electric) (TOKYO:6770)(President: Toshihiro Kuriyama; headquartered in Tokyo) will be exhibiting at the World Internet of Things Expo (WIOT) at the Wuxi Taihu International Expo Centre, Wuxi, Jiangsu, China, from Sunday, September 10, 2017.
Alps Electric will be demonstrating its IoT sensor module, a combination of sensor and telecommunication technologies, both of which are specialties of the company, at the World Internet of Things Expo (WIOT). Composed of small, low-power-consuming, highly accurate sensors and a telecommunication module, it enables measurement of such environmental data as atmospheric pressure, temperature and humidity, and illuminance, as well as 6-axis (acceleration and geomagnetic) sensing.
Verification tests using the IoT sensor module are already conducted by many partner companies in Japan. A variety of IoT solutions based on the test results, including remote control of agriculture and preventive maintenance of factories, are being introduced at the exhibition site.
If you come to WIOT, visit the Alps Electric booth.
