Exhibit Concept

Since its foundation in 1916 as Japan's first bearing manufacturer, NSK has continued its never-ending pursuit to contribute to the world of automobiles by improving environmental performance and vehicle safety. In this spirit, NSK has chosen "NO END: Ever Closer to Zero - Reducing Friction, Emissions, and Accidents Through Technology" as its exhibition theme this year.

Main Exhibits for Safety

NSK Advanced Assist Steering (first public display)
This exhibit showcases NSK's Advanced Assist Steering — a system that links the electric power steering (EPS) and the wheel hub motor*2 to support precision steering. Visitors to NSK's booth will be able to experience emergency avoidance and auto steering with a simulator using an actual steering wheel.
*2: Wheel hub motor: A system in which the drive motor is housed inside the hub of the wheel.

Obstacle Avoidance Guide Robots
This exhibit displays a guidance system that integrates advanced sensing technology with drive technology. This technology holds the potential to enable autonomous driving and improved safety and comfort for automobiles in the future. Visitors to NSK's booth will be able to view a demonstration of the robot in action.

About NSK
NSK is approaching its 100th anniversary in 2016. For more than 90 years, NSK has cultivated its Four Core Technologies of tribology, materials, analysis and mechatronics through the development and manufacture of bearings. In commemoration of NSK's wide-ranging contributions to the development of industry, NSK will display a bearing that has been replicated based on a 97-year old drawing (the oldest drawing of a bearing in Japan). NSK will also exhibit other examples of bearing application in vehicles―a rare chance to view the precision parts which work behind the scenes.
