Toyota is getting another big project this year and this time its focus is on addressing mobility. The Japanese auto giant is about to take mobility to the next level. The automaker made the big revelation at this year’s Tokyo Motor Show.
The newly revealed Concept-I RIDE reinforces the company’s goal of providing mobility for all individuals, especially those with disabilities. This new vehicle will use artificial intelligence (AI) and big data technology to enhance the driving experience and provide a fully automated vehicle.
About Toyota Concept-I RIDE
Developed by Toyota’s CALTY Design Research in California, the new vehicle leverages the power of artificial intelligence and big data technology to anticipate people’s needs and improve their lives. This concept vehicle is built around the philosophy of “kinetic warmth”, a belief that mobility technology should improve lives and offers great fun.
The new Concept-I RIDE is designed specifically to accommodate people with reduced mobility. The new vehicle is expected to improve the quality of life, allowing people with disabilities to be more independent and rely less on another person to help drive their wheelchair.
Toyota’s latest masterpiece features a futuristic gull-wing door to easily accommodate people in wheelchairs. It also includes an electronic chair that allows people with disabilities to easily transfer to the vehicle. The concept car also offers additional space in the back seat to stow the wheelchair and to fit people more comfortably.
In addition, the concept car also boasts a highly sophisticated Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology that learns with the driver to build a relationship that is meaningful and human. That AI technology gives Concept-I RIDE exceptional ability to use mobility technology to improve quality of life for people with disabilities.
What's more, the concept vehicle is designed with a strong focus on road safety. The concept car seamlessly monitors driver attention and road condition to help enhance driving safety. Toyota's Concept-I RIDE is scheduled to take on-road evaluation in the next couple of years in Japan.
