● Healthcare

• Smart Hearable, a solution now being developed by Sharp. Our goal is to achieve more comfortable communication by using cloud-based AI to analyze sound from a person's surroundings gathered by a device worn on the ear as well as location data acquired via smartphone, and generating a voice that matches the surrounding environment and user preferences.

● Entertainment

• Sharp's 120-inch 8K LCD monitor, one of the world's largest*3, which allows innovative ways to use displays thanks to its super-large screen and impressive rendering capability. A 60-inch 4K LCD monitor that delivers a 120-inch 8K-equivalent multi-display by combining four units (2 vertical x 2 horizontal).

In addition, we will present an 8K Interactive Museum that allows new ways of appreciating works of art and the like and an 8K video PC editing system from Dynabook Inc. Through an “ecosystem” covering everything from shooting to display, Sharp is offering new ways of enjoying 8K ultra-high image quality.

● Work styles, lifestyles

• COCORO OFFICE smart office service, TeleOffice cloud-based Web conferencing service, and a 70-inch 4K touchscreen LCD monitor that has gained Windows Collaboration Display certification by meeting interactive whiteboard standards.

● Devices and technologies (AI, communications [5G], security)

• As a non-contact healthcare solution, we will present a non-contact vital sensing solution that can measure multiple vital parameters simultaneously without contact, including pulse rate, blood pressure, respiratory rate, and body temperature.

• A remote response solution that allows facility staff to respond to facility users in a contact-free manner at medical care facilities and welfare institutions.

● Devices and technologies (electronic components, devices)

Sharp will propose new lifestyles and new experiences in this era of coexisting with the coronavirus, including using this technology in a variety of settings such as offices and reception counters at airports and hospitals.

3. Digital Community Development in the New Normal Era

● Technologies and services for smart cities and achieving the SDGs

COCORO ENERGY, Sharp's cloud-based HEMS service, utilizes AI to automatically and intelligently control residential solar power systems and storage batteries. It allows new lifestyles in which consumers efficiently use the electricity generated themselves. In addition, even in the event of a long-term power outage due to a disaster or when having to stay home during a disaster*4 (a scenario that has recently been drawing attention), a variety of home appliances can be used with the generated and stored electricity, enabling the comfort of one's home to be maintained.
