Thus, Mitsufuji has just started to expand into wearable market for children as wearable IoT platformer and develop services for keeping watch  for children with them in order to improve the quality of nurture and the secure and safety of children.

We are confident that it will eliminate the serious accidents providing the safety of the nursery school and improve the quality of childcare.
