Promoted as a user- and eco-friendly personal commuter model placing top priority on performance in tune with human sensibilities, the PAS gained popularity as a form of mobility “assisting” the various lifestyles people lead. Later, we applied the electronic control technologies developed through PAS bicycles and the latest human-interface technologies to successfully practicalize an eco-friendly electric commuter vehicle that produced no emissions and little noise. The fuel cell vehicle R&D we conducted at the same time is also contributing to today’s development work on new forms of mobility.To the Future Uniquely Yamaha Approaches to Solve Societal IssuesYamaha Motor is working to evolve and diversify its existing prod-uct lines by combining its core competencies with new cutting-edge technologies. At the same time, the Company is adapting its expertise in unmanned technologies and systems such as indus-trial robots and industrial-use unmanned helicopters to contribute to laborsaving efforts and raising efficiency in a variety of fields, from industry and farming to forestry. In addition, we are helping provide permanent access to potable water in coordination with public bodies and UN-affiliated organizations through projects to install our Yamaha Clean Water Supply System in developing countries. By searching for and identifying the root causes of problems on the ground and leveraging our technological prow-ess, the Company is moving to resolve societal issues in uniquely Yamaha ways.5Yamaha Motor Co., Ltd.
