Take Note!


We developed POWERTAG, an automatic timing system for bicycle races, in 1999. We now have the top market share in Japan for automatic timing system for sports events like bicycle races and marathons. We have expanded applications for the technology, and today it is used, for example, to control personnel entering and leaving offices, track children going to and leaving school and e-mail this information to parents, and monitor personnel as part of food defense strategies.

Development of Trigger ID System

We have developed a proprietary trigger ID system that advanced on technologies for automatic timing system. By giving the trigger an area ID, the system can accurately detect exactly where the tag picked up the trigger signal. The trigger ID system has a wide range of applications, such as in detecting personnel entering and leaving offices, and tracking goods in logistics businesses.

Innovative and Unique Technologies

The trigger ID system of monitoring personnel movement has been patented.
Japanese Patent No. 4763982 (Motion tracking system, receiving device, and motion tracking method)
