Toyota Group to Reinforce Initiatives in Indonesia

Toyota City, Japan, Nov 10, 2012 - (ACN Newswire) - Toyota Motor Corporation (TMC) and five other members of the Toyota Group(1): Toyota Auto Body Co., Ltd. (Toyota Auto Body), Toyota Tsusho Corporation (Toyota Tsusho), Aisin Seiki Co., Ltd. (Aisin Seiki), DENSO Corporation (DENSO), and Daihatsu Motor Co., Ltd. (Daihatsu) announce that they will reinforce their initiatives for the automotive industry of Indonesia.

The Toyota Group has been engaged in the automotive business in Indonesia for over 40 years, starting in the 1970s. Considering the remarkable growth of the market in recent years, the group is determined to make a concerted effort to boost its business in Indonesia to enable the continued provision of automobiles that exceed the expectations of Indonesian consumers.

TMC's Indonesian vehicle-producing subsidiary PT. Toyota Motor Manufacturing Indonesia (TMMIN) is to purchase 150 hectares of land near its two plants in Karawang to build a new engine plant to strengthen local procurement and to respond to future demand increases expected with the growth of the Indonesian market. Additionally, TMMIN's No. 1 Karawang Plant will increase its annual production capacity from 110,000 vehicles to 130,000 and employ 190 new workers by September 2013 to reinforce supply of IMV(2) series vehicles.

Toyota Auto Body is to begin vehicle production in December 2012 at PT Sugity Creatives PT, its joint-venture vehicle and parts manufacturing company in Bekasi Regency formed with TMMIN and Toyota Tsusho.

Last month, Daihatsu began operation at its Karawang Plant - its second local production base following its Sunter Plant (established in 1992) in northern Jakarta. Construction of Daihatsu's second test track and design center outside Japan will also begin at its Karawang Plant within the year.

Likewise, Toyota Tsusho, Aisin Seiki and DENSO are to strengthen their activities for the development of related industries in Indonesia.

With TMC and Daihatsu vehicle production in Indonesia, and Toyota Auto Body starting production of vehicles there this December, the Toyota Group is positioned to offer a wide variety of vehicles matched to Indonesian consumer needs.

Aisin Seiki, DENSO and Toyota Tsusho engage in component production and marketing, contributing to the development of related industries. As these companies integrate their efforts with the Toyota Group, TMMIN has achieved 75 percent local procurement for its major vehicle model. The Toyota Group will continue such efforts to further increase the rate of local procurement.

Over four decades, TMC, Toyota Auto Body, Toyota Tsusho, Aisin Seiki, DENSO and Daihatsu have made investments in Indonesia worth over a total of approximately 27 trillion rupiah (of which TMC accounts for 9.49 trillion), and presently employs more than 32,000 people (7,400 by TMC). With today's announcement, the companies plan to newly invest 13 trillion rupiah and aim to increase employment to up to approximately 41,000 people over the next five years.

The Toyota Group will continue its efforts to contribute to the greater growth of the automotive industry in Indonesia to satisfy consumers and enrich local communities.

It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection.

Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...
Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value.

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity.

Some of the most successful implementations leverage WebRTC, WebSockets, SIP and other open source technologies. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Da...
"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...
