Innovative AI, EV Solution, Green Energy, Next Communication, Semiconductor and Robotics Technology Opens Gateway To Collaborative Synergies
Centered on the theme “Less Is More”, SHARP showcased its latest Smart Living Solutions including proposals powered by Artificial Intelligence (AI) teaming with start-ups and products applying its unique nature technology. Guided by the needs of consumers’ modern lifestyles, SHARP aspires to enrich households with greater convenience and comfort. The Future of Smart Cities The Future of Smart Cities
In the wake of unexpected hazardous situations, SHARP’s vision to enforce “Better Safety” in cities is reflected in its exhibits. A local 5G disaster relief solution “Instant 5G Network” houses a set of equipment such as batteries and application servers that can easily create a local 5G environment in a waterproof luggage bag. Mobility is another crucial part of developing smart cities. In this vein, SHARP continues to be a critical innovator in enhancing safety for drivers through its AI driving-assistance feature.

Focused on integrating “Better Efficiency”, SHARP’s Smarter Office through XR and Smarter Logistic with robotics improves logistical efficiency. In addition, the brand’s breakthrough Smart Manufacturing and Smart Laboratory technology, powered by AI and Sensing Technology, provides exceptional, future-oriented manufacturing and bioengineering solutions. The Future of Sustainability The Future of Sustainability
In tune with global demand for sustainable solutions, SHARP is turning heads with innovations in Green Energy and Green Digital Communication. Its pioneering solar development is compatible with applications at home and for businesses, with breakthrough capabilities to innovate new solar modules for the electric vehicle (EV) industry and outer space. Adding on to the sustainability line-up, Sharp IGZO backplane realizes high visibility of the new electronic paper display or ePoster at zero watts (“0W”) power consumption when displaying a still image. The ePoster, which was a collaboration with E Ink Holdings Inc, now comes in A2-size, a standard poster size. Nurturing synergy among innovators Nurturing synergy among innovators
Beyond developing innovative solutions, SHARP believes in playing a bigger role of bringing innovators together to form synergies that elevate technology advancements and speed to market. SHARP has released specifications of its edge AI technology and established a system that facilitates cooperation and collaboration. Believing that start-ups possess a wealth of ideas and technologies, SHARP has since engaged with 5 start-ups to further develop generative AI technology. SHARP’s strategic partner, FOXCONN, also showcased their SUV Electric Vehicle as well as a series of automotive semiconductors, high-reliability automotive MCUs and LED IC control. In the spirit of co-creating with people possessing various technologies and backgrounds, SHARP also organised a hackathon at the SHARP Tech Day, which welcomed ground- breaking ideas from engineers and designers involved in video equipment, corporations, teams or individuals from start-up companies and academia, regardless of industry or occupation. Challenged with redefining the new value of televisions in the future, participants developed applications and software prototypes under various themes such as “AI”, “Web3”, “QoL (Quality of life)”, and “Entertainment” among others. Hackathon winner, Team Yukai na Nakama Tachi, who proposed the idea of an ‘AI assistant standing close by the family’, took home the coveted 1 million yen cash prize. SHARP is also considering a future joint development and acceleration support for the winning prototype. A testimony of unwavering commitment to innovation, quality and sustainability, the SHARP Tech Day was packed with a capacity crowd, all anticipated to see the innovations. The company trusts that the visitors would take home the knowledge about SHARP’s cutting-edge innovations to spark conversations around adoption and new partnerships.
