This product uses optical decoration technology for automobile meters and air conditioner remote controllers to check the CO2 concentration, which is used as a reference for ventilation from a distance of 360 degrees, depending on the output of the built-in sensors using light and sound in three colors.
Unlike sensors that respond to ethanol, opto-acoustic (PAS) CO2 sensors are next-generation optical sensors that utilize the infrared wavelength responsiveness of CO2 recommended by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry in the Guidelines for the Selection of Carbon Dioxide Concentration Measurement Instruments. Accurate detection of carbon dioxide concentration in enclosed space.

We developed Holfee, a guidance system for mini excavators that utilizes sensor sensing technology.
By installing a simple sensor unit without wiring to the mini excavator and installing a simple smartphone application, the ground excavation depth is guided to the operator during horizontal and slope construction, and information on the target excavation depth and slope is conveyed to the operator so that the operator can easily perform a skilled operation.The system is easy-to-use designs for inexperienced people. It helps to address the shortage of manpower in the construction industry and the problem of inheriting the skills of experienced workers.
