10 years of gratitude

【Message by Japanese Admin】
Even though ZMP was established in 2001, we moved to the present Sumitomo Fudosan Koishikawa Building in June 2009.

As we celebrate our 10th year here, we took this opportunity to thank our support staff who shows consistently outstanding job performance since 2009.​ ​
Our CEO Hisashi Taniguchi presented her letter of thanks, bouquet, and a gift to express gratitude.

She was surprised seeing all the ZMP members gathered to thank her. Even though she was shy, she was impressive with a wonderful smile and a very happy appearance!

We shouldn’t forget those who are working hard in supporting us to make our work to run smoothly and efficiently.

ZMP inspires elementary school girl to make a cardboard Carriro Deli for her school project.

【Message by Brazilian Engineer】
I participated at the "Automotive Engineering Exposition 2019 Yokohama", and while I was presenting to several bystenders, this little girl and her mom approach Carriro Deli with a huge smile on their face.
The mom quickly tells me that the girl came to the event just to meet our delivery robot. I, surprised, ask her why and she answers that her daughter made a cardboard version of Carriro Deli for her school project, and proceeds to show me the picture.
It made my day, because at that moment I knew that ZMP is already inspiring people without even knowing it.
We are here to change the world, and for the better. Join us in this amazing journey of making "robot of everything!"

Young and energetic students at “Automotive Engineering Exposition 2019 Yokohama”

【Message by Japanese Marketing​】
Young and energetic students visited the “Automotive Engineering Exposition 2019 Yokohama” held from May 22nd to 24th.

They are the students of University of Tsukuba : Junior High School at Komaba.
As a part of their curriculum they visited for the application of coverage on autonomous driving and robotic technology by students alone,​ ​
and they were interested in asking questions about various issues related to autonomous driving.

It would be nice if young people could convey the fun and rewards of their work in this field!

We look forward to seeing you!

Junior high school students visit!​ ​

【Message by Japanese Marketing​】
Three students from Okazaki Junior High School under Aichi University of Education from Aichi Prefecture visited ZMP! At Okazaki Junior High School, there is a learning curriculum in which each student has to research for two years regarding the problems they discovered in their daily lives, and one of them has researched on “Autonomous driving” and the research results were presented at the ZMP office! The junior high school students who presented imposingly in front of many engineers were also curious about the employees who are developing autonomous driving technology! The honest opinions and interesting questions from the new viewpoint were very valuable for us to create the unforeseeable future.

ZMP "Dojo"

【Message by Russian Engineer】
In April we started a series of lectures inside the company called ZMP Dojo (training hall).​ ​
We have a lot of newcomers, and it's important to keep developers overall level high.
The first talk was about basic multi-threading practices based on C++ examples, that are used in everyday work. We had about 30 people attending.​ ​
It was short and only for 20 minutes, but I hope everyone could gain something from it.
Currently the feedback is gathered to improve the next Dojo event!

​ ​Spring is just around the Corner​ ​

【Message by Japanese HR】
ZMP’s head office is located in an area called Koishikawa in Tokyo. Although the company deals with state-of-the-art technology, the office is situated in a place that’s actually full of nature. There are botanical gardens and cherry blossom trees around it and lately, there’s a feeling of spring in the air.
Having this environment helps me feel refreshed even when things get busy around in the office.​ ​
I’m looking forward to the cherry blossom season that’s just around the corner!​ ​

Newspaper Project Interview

【Message by Japanese HR】
Last year in November, we pushed an article called “Newspaper Project Interview from an Elementary School Student”. Did you have a chance to check it out? We received the newspaper the other day, containing the article the student wrote.
The article contained many detailed explanations on the autonomous driving taxi and it made me feel like we were working together to make this big dream come true.​
Autonomous driving technology is a very hot topic nowadays but we want to work hard to make this something which will improve the lives of many in society.​ ​
Thank you again for writing such a wonderful article and we hope you keep rooting for us!​ ​

We held our first collaboration event with Fixstars and LPixel this Tuesday! As key players in the high tech industry, it was also a great opportunity for us to spend time with not only the participants but also with the collaborating companies. I also loved how colorful the office was at Fixstars.

Thank you so much to everyone who came, FixStars and LPixel!​ ​

Exciting project at airports!​ ​

【Message by Japanese Sales】
We are participating in the demonstration experiment in restricted areas of airports, which is the first effort of the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport. As ZMP, two experiments were conducted at Narita International Airport so far, and in March we are also planning experiments at the Chubu Centrair International Airport.

Autonomous driving in the airport is a new field and is a new challenge for us.
We will keep working together with engineers to successfully complete the experiment next March!

CarriRo Deli Testing at Keio Univeristy

【Message by Japanese Marketing】
We’ve finally started demonstration testing of our autonomous delivery robot, CarriRo Deli, this week at the Shonan Fujisawa Campus of Keio University.

University students, faculty and staff can order goods to be delivered from a convenient store by specifying delivery time and place using a smartphone application.
I also tried out the delivery service and when I saw CarriRo Deli going off to deliver items, I felt like a parent sending off his child to school.

With lots of love and care from customers, I do hope CarriRo Deli will keep growing!​ ​

Automotive World

【Message by Japanese HR】
We’ve been exhibiting at Autonomous Driving Technology Expo at the Automotive World held at Tokyo Big Sight from 16th to 18th January.

Our booth so far has been a great success.
The effectiveness of the demonstration experiment of the autonomous driving taxi last year has attracted many people who are interested in autonomous operation technology of ZMP.
Thank you very much for coming!

Today is our final day and the booth, like other days, is a lively place where various questions have been fluttering between our members and visitors interested in our industry and also those from overseas who are looking into it.The exhibition of the latest Robocar SUV in the booth is attracting a lot of media attention too.

Despite it being on weekdays, the overwhelming number of visitors to our booth made me realize again how much the technology of our company has been drawing attention.
I hope to continue to appeal the technical capabilities of ZMP. The event is close to finish by we’ll keep on doing our best to let others know!​ ​

We went Live on National TV!​ ​

【Message by Japanese Engineer】
We have done a lot of autonomous driving so far, but since it was the first time for us to broadcast live on the national channel, there was a distinctive tense feeling.
In the end, I was really happy to be able to showcase to the viewers about how far we have come in our development.
I want to keep working hard to make autonomous driving a safe and convenient technology for everyone.
We’re getting ready for the next one, so do stay tuned!
