There are about 40 research labs and 17 conference rooms at our Environment Technology Lab where about 250 researchers are working on the research and development of new technology for products such as air purifiers, water purifiers, bidets, and mattresses using more than 410 state-of-the-art devices and equipment. Since 2017, we have selected key projects for our new growth engines as part of the Beethoven Project where our CTO serves as a project manager. The project is largely divided into Stellar Project for product development and Re:Bluetion Project for operational innovation while the CTO oversees the progress on a weekly basis, makes decisions and sets the directions.
At Coway, we operate Air Lab with the concept of “everything about the air”. Through this, we promote our expertise and leadership in air quality management. The site provides hands-on content, air quality self-diagnosis, and useful information (e.g. Air Lab Report) to raise awareness of the importance of air quality care program.
Since 2014, we have accumulated 120 billion pieces of data collected from the air purifiers installed at our customers and used this data to classify the indoor air quality into 24 categories and provide customized filters. Using this Big Data, we are able to identify the indoor and outdoor air quality at home and the trend of change by time of day, and even provide healthcare service through the application.
At Coway, we carry out joint research with colleges, research labs and governments around the world on air quality and flow to make sure that clean air flows everywhere under any circumstances.
