Technology is Mitsubishi Electric’s core competence, and R&D powers our technological and business development. We undertake R&D to drive corporate growth, and to create value by addressing the key social issues of the day: ageing populations, urban congestion, global warming, energy and water shortages, and more.
Harnessing our strengths as a comprehensive manufacturer of electronics, we develop common technologies that create synergies. Through our efforts, we hope to realise a safer, more sustainable society.
A global R&D network
At R&D facilities in Japan, the USA, the UK, France and China, our researchers focus on different technological themes. What they all share, however, is a human-centric approach to development that is based on listening to local needs. To maximise our R&D activities, we also promote open innovation by working proactively with universities and other external R&D institutions.
Common technology platforms for all products
We focus our R&D efforts on technology platforms that can be used across our product portfolio. One example is our Maisart* brand of artificial intelligence (AI) technology. In the development process, we’re able to tap into our know-how in equipment for factories, buildings, vehicles and other applications to take greater advantage of AI. By making devices smarter, we hope to help realise a safer, more convenient society.
