Toppan, a global leader in communication, security, packaging, décor materials, and electronics solutions, will participate in the Image Sensing Show 2023, to be held from 14 to 16 June at the Pacifico Yokohama Convention Center in Japan.

The Image Sensing Show presents a wide range of image processing devices and sensing technologies from Japan and overseas. This year’s event will feature a digital solutions zone showcasing technologies expected to see a dramatic expansion in use going forward. These include AI, deep learning, cloud technologies, 5G and 6G communication, the Internet of Things, edge computing, virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), mixed reality (MR), automated systems, and robotic process automation (RPA).

The Toppan stand (D-18) will be in the digital solutions zone and provide demonstrations of sensing over 20 meters using a prototype camera equipped with a 3D depth image sensor (Hybrid ToF Sensor) that Toppan announced in June last year. Solutions displayed will include a sample obstacle detection app for autonomous mobile robot (AMR) developers and manufacturers, developed using a software development kit (SDK), as well as two user interface (UI) applications, ‘AR Glasses UI’ and ‘Touchless UI.’

Hybrid ToF camera

Toppan will display its Hybrid ToF Camera, capable of measuring distances of up to 30 meters, for the first time. The camera can sense over a wide range of distances from one to 20 meters.

Obstacle detection app

As an example of the use of an SDK for a robot operation system (ROS), a development environment for robotics, Toppan will demonstrate an obstacle detection application for potential use in AMRs. The Hybrid ToF Sensor’s outstanding accuracy in detecting moving objects will be applied to pinpoint the three-dimensional location of a person captured by the ToF camera and generate movement instructions for a robot.

UI applications

Toppan will showcase ‘AR Glasses UI’ and ‘Touchless UI,’ two examples of applications connecting devices such as AR glasses and displays to Hybrid TOF cameras.

AR Glasses UI

Users can control the screen displayed on AR glasses by moving their hands in front of the glasses. Both hands are free because there is no need to hold a controller like in previous models. 

Touchless UI

A virtual touch panel is created by attaching a ToF camera to the display, and users can control the screen by simply moving their hands in front of the display.


In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
