Nidec-Shimpo Corporation ("Nidec-Shimpo") is collaborating with Honda Motor Co., Ltd. ("Honda") in a joint effort to mass-produce an omni-directional driving wheel system, the "Honda Omni Traction Drive System" (the "system") developed by Honda. The product is expected to be launched in January 2019.

By combining the expertise of Honda with Nidec-Shimpo's know-how in manufacturing it has become possible to start mass production of the system earlier than initially planned. Furthermore, in addition to expanding its S-CART lineup, Nidec-Shimpo also plans to sell the system as a stand-alone product.
