More for Society

Make More Controllable Products

Among all products, the electric power-assisted bicycle, for example, senses its user’s feet pressing its pedals to apply power in response. The user would feel uncomfortable whether the power is applied too early or too late, while an excessive amount of power would heighten the risk of accidents. In an electric power-assisted bicycle’s assist unit lies a device that controls the unit’s on-off signals and power in an extremely accurate manner – as in an automobile’s power steering system – to ensure a safe and comfortable mobility. With our power train units, we aim for the highest level of control.
