DENSO and NTT DATA Complete Verification Test Using Vehicle and People Flow Data to Innovate the Mobility Experience

Published

on

KARIYA and TOKYO, Jun 08, 2021 – (JCN Newswire) – DENSO and NTT DATA today announced that they have completed a joint verification test to improve mobility experiences using data on vehicle and people flows.

In the test, which spanned June 2020 to March 2021, DENSO and NTT DATA gathered participants’ “vehicle flow data,” or their movements by car, through in-vehicle devices and -people flow data” through their smartphone GPS and beacon detection logs.(1) Together, these data offered insights on participants’ driving characteristics and the types of driving scenarios they encountered.

The test was conducted to provide better mobility experiences and services, and to help businesses attract potential customers amid changing consumer behaviors. To do this, the test analyzed the participants’ driving behaviors and their driving status and behavior, and then recommended stores they might be interested in using their vehicle flow data and people flow data. The test showed that the drivers’ behavior were affected by recommendation based on those flow data analysis.

Based on the results, DENSO and NTT DATA will consider commercializing the joint service, and verify the business model together with mobility businesses (automakers, car-sharing companies, car rental companies, etc.) and service providers (retailers, tour agents, commercial complexes, etc.).

Background

When going out, many people not only want to enjoy activities at their destination such as shopping, they also want to enjoy the trip and experiences along the way. If, for example, they want to reserve a restaurant, however, first they have to search the Internet for necessary information, and make a reservation through dedicated apps, which makes the experience inconsistent. As technologies such as connected vehicles, next-generation cockpits and automated driving evolve, the amount of information people can access from their cars will increase. Providing a seamless mobile experience for people both inside and outside of the ehicle may provide consumers with value and improve their trips.

DENSO is planning and developing next-generation cockpit platforms and connected vehicle system platforms, to build a new mobility society that connects vehicles, people, and things.

Since June 2020, in collaboration with unerry Inc., which operates the “Real Behavior Data Platform,” NTT DATA has been developing “Mobility Commerce Service(2),” which provides users with a new travel experience to enjoy trips en route to their destination. The verification test used unerry’s people flow data(3) and algorithms, which are part of the above service.

DENSO and NTT DATA found advantages in working together to provide services that connect people’s trips using mobility systems and their destinations. The two companies therefore conducted a verification test to innovate the mobility experience based on vehicle and people flow data.

Concept of the service

It understands preference for how people move based on data gathered from in-vehicle devices and their smartphones, and analyzes the characteristics of their driving and movement, in order to provide timely and personalized content and recommendations to improve travel experiences and deliver better services when traveling with or without a car. The service is also intended to offer new values to service providers, such as helping them attract potential customers amid changing behaviors.

(1) This verification test is being conducted with the consent from the monitors to obtain and use their personal information for the purpose of this verification test.

(3) Uses unerry’s Beacon Bank, the offline behavior data platform. (unerry has formed a capital and business alliance with NTT DATA)

SEC Fines Real Estate Firm for Lax Disclosure Practices

Published

on

A real estate settlement services company has run afoul of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) for not properly acting on security vulnerabilities when first aware of them.

On June 15 the SEC said they have settled charges against First American Corporation for disclosure controls and procedures violations in relation to a security threat that could have compromised sensitive customer information.

In a statement, the SEC said a cybersecurity journalist informed First American on May 24, 2019, that its application for sharing document images had a flaw that left vulnerable more than 800 million images dating back to 2003. Some of those files contained financial information and social security numbers.

While the company acted quickly on the journalist’s tip, issuing a press release that day and filing an 8-K form four days later, they were punished because some in the company knew of the problem for several months but did not act on it.

“However, according to the order, First American’s senior executives responsible for these public statements were not apprised of certain information that was relevant to their assessment of the company’s disclosure response to the vulnerability and the magnitude of the resulting risk,” the SEC said in a statement. “In particular, the order finds that First American’s senior executives were not informed that the company’s information security personnel had identified the vulnerability several months earlier, but had failed to remediate it in accordance with the company’s policies.”

The SEC further found First American did not properly maintain disclosure controls and procedures which were to protect available and relevant information that was to be analyzed for disclosure in public reports filed with the SEC.

“As a result of First American’s deficient disclosure controls, senior management was completely unaware of this vulnerability and the company’s failure to remediate it,” said Kristina Littman, chief of the SEC Enforcement Division’s Cyber Unit.  “Issuers must ensure that information important to investors is reported up the corporate ladder to those responsible for disclosures.”

The SEC charged First American with a violation of Rule 13a-15(a) of the Exchange Act. Without comment on the findings First American agreed to a cease-and-desist order and will pay a $487,616 fine.

First American reported revenue of $7.1 billion in 2020.

The global furniture market is expected to grow from $564 billion in 2020 to $671 billion in 2021 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 18.9%.

  • Improved housing market fundamentals in the United States make the near-term outlook for the furniture industry encouraging.
  • Mortgage interest rates are at record lows,
  • The continuous declines in mortgage rates have been driving new home sales, which in turn, should drive demand for furniture products in the near term.
