Tokyo demonstration aims to showcase Toyota’s “mobility as a service” concept.
The Toyota Research Institute (TRI) has announced that its Platform 4 (P4) automated driving test vehicle will be available for public demonstration rides next summer in Tokyo.
The P4 experience will take place in Tokyo’s busy and congested business district in order to demonstrate the capabilities of Toyota’s automated driving technology in challenging conditions.
“By challenging ourselves to successfully operate autonomously in Odaiba, we have set a high bar that requires us to rapidly expand the capabilities of our technology in a short amount of time,” said TRI CEO Gill Pratt. “To accomplish that, we are working closely with the Advanced R&D Division of Toyota Motor Corporation and Toyota Research Institute-Advanced Development based in Tokyo, who is responsible for bringing the P4’s automated driving software to the public.”
