NGK

NGK is one of the leading automotive and technical ceramics suppliers, with its corporate headquarters in Nagoya, Japan and sales organisations and production facilities all over the world. The automotive side of the company specialises in the fields of ignition and sensor technology, supplying Original Equipment and Aftermarket customers across the globe. 

The company believes that the collection of relevant vehicle data is beneficial to the whole automotive industry, be it workshops or spare parts dealers, insurance companies or used vehicle dealers – but most of all to the customers. Carmunication is committed to fair opportunities and free access to data whilst maintaining high standards of data privacy and data security, all of which are very important to NGK.

The data collected by Carmunication shows information that is vital to help, for example, procure the right parts as quickly as possible, and quickly react to market demand in general. A shorter time-to-market benefits the business, but most of all customers benefit from having the right product at the right time. 

NGK’s vision for connected cars in 2030 sees them as autonomously driving living spaces which not only communicate all the data needed to enhance security, improve geolocation and reduce fuel-emissions, but also know their occupants and their preferences, adjusting the settings automatically. As part of this the portfolio of advanced sensors from NGK SPARK PLUG will contribute to the intelligence of the car, identifying and solving potential problems automatically.
