Fujitsu today announced that it has developed FUJITSU IoT Solution UBIQUITOUSWARE, an Internet-of-Things package that senses the status of people and things and their surrounding environments and analyzes the data to quickly provide valuable, actionable data tailored to a customer’s business.
The package consists of UBIQUITOUSWARE core modules that, in combination with sensors, microcontrollers and wireless communication function to analyze sensing data. These core modules work in tandem with middleware that uses sensors to learn and analyze data in the cloud. Sensing data is analyzed using the Human-Centric Engine, Fujitsu’s proprietary algorithms, which convert data into information that customers can put to use quickly, such as fall-detection or body-posture detection.
UBIQUITOUSWARE is available as a package of modules and middleware that is easily installed in existing devices and systems. The first example of a device embedded with UBIQUITOUSWARE is the UBIQUITOUSWARE Head Mounted Display, announced today. Location badges, vital-sign sensing bands, and other products will be rolled out beginning December 2015.
Fujitsu has begun field testing of UBIQUITOUSWARE with customers and is making initiatives toward its deployment within the Fujitsu Group. The results of these efforts will be used to expand its IoT business into a variety of fields.
As the era of the Internet of Things approaches, Fujitsu is pursuing Human-Centric IoT initiatives to help companies develop new and valuable lines of business using a wide range of digital information. Building on the base of its Human-Centric Engine that it has developed through PCs and mobile devices, the company is now offering UBIQUITOUSWARE as the front-end interface for Human-Centric IoT.
