Vayyar Imaging, which is developing 4D imaging radar, has announced that Tomo Taguchi, the former president of Texas Instruments Japan, is to head up the company’s new entity, Vayyar Imaging Japan. The Tokyo office, which opened in February 2022, is intended to focus on business development, system application sales and marketing, bringing Vayyar’s hardware-software platforms to the key Japanese market.
With decades of experience in the semiconductor industry and deep knowledge of the Japanese technology sector, Taguchi’s target will be to accelerate the company’s engagements with leading automotive OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers, while progressing its expansion in the senior care space, as well as other verticals in future.
“Vayyar is ideally positioned to transform the Japanese market with cutting-edge radar-on-chip technology and I am pleased and proud to become part of the company’s exciting story,” said Taguchi. “The mission of protecting lives, whether on the road, in elderly care communities, in private homes or in the workplace, is close to my heart, and I look forward to collaborating closely with leading enterprises on creating a safer world for all.”
