Daikin invests USD 2 million in US technology company

Daikin is investing USD 2 million in Silicon Valley-based startup Locix, a company specializing in cloud-based spatial intelligence solutions. Based in San Bruno, California, Locix employs spatial intelligence solutions that use a combination of indoor positioning technology, advanced AI, and Wi-Fi to acquire and analyze location, as well as spatial and visual data to enable actionable insights. The data is subsequently employed in automated decision making for critical services. These services include asset management at distribution warehouses and factories, operational efficiency based on the movement of workers, and occupancy monitoring for the advancement of smart buildings.

At the end of the last year, Daikin established a corporate venture capital department to promote collaboration with startup companies, and announced it had set aside USD 100 million for supporting investments over the next 5 years. The amount being allocated to Locix represents Daikin’s first investment in a company outside Japan.

Daikin aims to reduce labor hours at installation sites by utilizing Locix’s local positioning technology, Locix LPS. The Locix LPS solution will configure and confirm positioning information of indoor air conditioning units and automate remote monitoring services that were previously performed manually. In addition, by detecting and analyzing the presence and movement of people and assets in an office building, Daikin expects to see a solutions business for office spaces emerge.
