Press Release

TDK Corporation will exhibit again at the annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Nevada, from January 9th through January 12th, at booth #20521 located in the Central Hall. The company will showcase more than 30+ technology demonstrations and experiences across its portfolio, highlighting components, sensors, and system solutions for the entire spectrum of electronics applications.

TDK will also host an invite-only, private showcase called Techno Forum featuring an additional 10+ demonstrations of prototypes, pre-prototypes, and updated solutions. TDK will also be releasing a series of sensor products and partner announcements from its InvenSense brand at the show. Numerous TDK group companies, such as Qeexo, ICsense, TDK, TDK Electronics, TDK-Micronas, TDK-Lambda, and InvenSense, will be present at the booth.

Additionally, Qeexo and Doosan Robotics were named as honorees in the 2024 CES Innovation Awards, which spotlights outstanding design and engineering, for their collaboration on an AI recycling & order-picking robot. Together, Qeexo and Doosan Robotics created Oscar the Sorter, a cobot that utilizes Doosan’s Dart-Suite where users can download an app specifically programmed for recycling and order pick-up. With minimal user setup, the robot quickly learns to recognize and sort objects, eliminating common classification errors. This smart robotic solution also allows for real-time downloads of new models and streamlined programming.

The TDK booth (Central Hall – booth #20521) will feature company experts showcasing solutions ranging from automotive (including e-mobility, advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), and autonomous driving, robotics, 5G, machine learning (ML), and the Internet of Things (IoT) – as well as additional fun demos including a smart cane, a soccer ball, robotic lawn mower, ultrasonic door lock, and more.
