The Global Innovation Award is an award granted at an annual ceremony held by Nissan Motor. Among Nissan Motor's suppliers around the world, the suppliers who have taken innovative initiatives contributing to Nissan Motor's product competitiveness and brand power receive the award.

While conventional antennas receive signals in a single frequency band resulting in positioning accuracy errors of several meters, MinebeaMitsumi's high-precision positioning GNSS antenna receives signals in multiple frequency bands reducing the positioning error to an accuracy of less than a meter.
Furthermore, MinebeaMitsumi's antenna miniaturization technology allowed multi-layering of antennas and has realized a compact and high-performance antenna, contributing to the realization of both autonomous driving technology and vehicle design.

In addition, this high-precision positioning GNSS antenna has been adopted by Nissan Motor to "NISSAN ARIYA" as an antenna for Nissan ProPILOT.

MinebeaMitsumi Group is sincerely grateful for this award, and the MinebeaMitsumi Group will continue to concentrate on creating indispensable products to society and new values, by support oriented to the market & customers and by developing optimal products, as a provider of Electro Mechanics Solutions™*.
