Displays are part of a much bigger picture for Mitsubishi Electric.

Although most visitors to ISE will instantly recognise Mitsubishi Electric as one of the must-see display manufacturers, Mitsubishi’s video walls are of course just one aspect of a very much bigger global engineering enterprise that spans everything from microelectronics to the robotic space vehicles that supply the International Space Station. Visitors to our booth at ISE 2016 will get a small insight into some of these other activities in the shape of an industrial robot from Mitsubishi Electric's Factory Automation Division, and the diminutive Secure Autonomous Machine's (SAM) robot which can be seen unobtrusively patrolling the floor of the show, relaying video information back to one of the main DLP cube displays.

SAM’s day job is patiently patrolling factory floors looking for things out of place or any unusual activities. It is an autonomous robot, which is able to find its way reliably around obstacles independently. The crowds on the Mitsubishi Electric booth at this year’s ISE show have presented no difficulties for this little guy!

Further examples of the real-world solutions provided by Mitsubishi Electric can be seen on the video walls featured on the booth. The 12U Slimcube Series displays features content from a Factory Automation SCADA system, while the 78 Series and 120 Series videowalls show a mixture of IP streaming video and data from multiple sources, including from Mitsubishi Electric’s new 7000 Series cameras on the stand, and of course from our small robotic friend SAM!
