Denso, one of the world’s largest suppliers of robotics and automation technologies, is partnering with software company Symbio to establish a technology innovation centre in Finland.
Denso, the main supplier to Toyota and one of the leading automotive component manufacturers in general, says the innovation center in Finland is a joint enterprise based at Symbio’s premises in Espoo, Finland.
Symbio is a technology research and development company with expertise in robotics, automation and internet of things systems.
Denso, one of the world’s largest automotive technology suppliers, is expanding its US footprint with a $1 billion investment in its Maryville, Tennessee location.
Denso says the investment is part of its commitment to advancing automotive innovation in North America, and will significantly increase the role North America plays in the global trend toward vehicle safety and electrification.
Denso Robotics has launched its latest HSR four-axis scara – selective compliant assembly robot arm – robot.
The company says the new robot uses advanced vibration control, a newly designed, highly rigid lightweight arm and improved heat dissipation in the base unit to achieve new levels of continuous high-speed performance and repeatability.
Peter Cavallo, robotics sales manager, Denso products and services Americas, says: “Our new HSR robot represents the culmination of 50 years of experience in developing industrial robot arms to meet our own manufacturing needs in the highly competitive automotive sector.

Denso Robotics has opened its latest and “most modern” sales, application and training center, located 40 minutes northeast of Cincinnati.
The Denso Robotics sales, application and training Center in West Chester, Ohio provides production operators, programmers and maintenance personnel training on the finer points of today’s cutting edge robotic arms, controllers and applications.
Global auto supplier Denso has opened a new research and development lab at the University of Michigan, in the US.
Denso, which used to be part of Toyota, says the new research facility will “accelerate development of new auto safety technologies and create new research opportunities for engineering students”.
The company says the Denso R&D Lab gives Denso an opportunity to more closely collaborate with the university and North American automotive manufacturers on key safety technologies like machine learning, advanced driver assistance systems, and automated drive.
Robotics and automation giant Denso says it’s become the lead investor in Thinci
Denso says its investment in startup will help accelerate next-generation automotive technology, using innovative deep learning and vision processing silicon and software.
The company adds that its investment will lead to advancements in driver assistance and autonomous driving, improve the efficiency of thermal systems, and optimize the productivity of the vehicle’s powertrain.
Tony Cannestra, Denso International America’s director of corporate ventures, says: “Denso has been researching new developments in the area of computer vision processing. We strongly believe that Thinci’s technology will soon become a key component of next generation autonomous driving systems that require advanced computing techniques combined with deep learning capabilities.

Industrial robot-making giant Denso to advance artificial intelligence knowledge, signs technical advisory contract with Carnegie Mellon University
In an effort to deepen and advance its knowledge in artificial intelligence, Denso has entered into a technical advisory contract with one of the world’s foremost researchers in computer vision, Carnegie Mellon University Professor Dr Takeo Kanade.
Through this contract, Denso is looking to advance its artificial intelligence technology and expand its engineering expertise in the areas of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), autonomous drive, and the Internet of Things (IoT).
Dr Kanade, a UA and Helen Whitaker University Professor of Robotics and Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon, will provide technical guidance to Denso engineers on image recognition and machine learning, and will also speak at lectures and seminars organized by Denso for a variety of purposes, such as recruiting, relationship building, and so on. These activities will be held mostly in Japan. Continue reading Denso teams up with Carnegie Mellon to develop artificial intelligence knowledge
Denso is teaming up with eSol and NEC to develop superfast networks for connected cars.
The three companies will form a joint venture to develop basic software that can support high-speed data communication, high-quality security, and high-performance microcomputers, in order to advance in-vehicle systems used for automated driving and other control actions.
Denso Robotics has released its latest RC8 robot controller, which features a built-in I/O command-slave function that allows Denso robots to be controlled directly by Rockwell and Omron PLCs or PACs. Beta testing for Siemens and Mitsubishi PLCs and PACs is in progress.
“Ease of use has always one of our chief considerations,” said Peter Cavallo, robotics sales manager, Denso products and services Americas. “The I/O command-slave function in our RC8 controller makes it easy for customers to program and operate our robots from within their familiar PLC or PAC environment, without having to learn a specialized programming language.”
Denso is the world’s largest manufacturer — and user — of small assembly robots, employing more than 17,000 of its robots in its own facilities. More than 60,000 additional Denso robots are used by other companies worldwide, giving Denso the largest market share in this segment by far.
