Teijin has signed a joint development agreement with AEV Robotics (AEV ).

Teijin and AEV will use the first two years of the initiative to develop elemental technologies.

The agreement is to create lightweight components and solutions for next generation transportation.

The components will use Teijin ‘s materials such as polycarbonate resin, carbon and aramid fibres, as well as composites technologies owned by Teijin and its group companies including Continental Structural Plastics for structural design.

Teijin will also contribute know-how for heat management to optimise weight reduction and heat insulation, as well as for sound absorption. Teijin will additionally apply expertise it has developed in supporting the Kogakuin University Solar Team’s participation in the world’s biggest solar car race.

AEV ‘s Modular Vehicle System will serve as the foundation for a de facto standard for next-generation vehicles that satisfy the Well-to-Wheel Zero Emission goal established by Japan’s Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI).

AEV is concurrently developing a highly efficient electric vehicle platform and autonomous driving system which realise low-speed electric vehicle (LS-EV) for use in various fields, such as medical care, logistics and industry, as well as conventional transportation.
