Toyota Will Test Self-Driving Cars With AI By 2020

Toyota Concept-i Ride reaches Tokyo with its gullwing doors image

Toyota Motor will later this month unveil a concept vehicle equipped with artificial intelligence that can come to understand drivers' preferences and even their feelings, the Japanese automaker said Monday.

Following the debut of the Concept-i earlier this year at CES, Toyota has now unveiled two more Concept-i models that now expand the concepts into a series.

Toyota plans to begin tests on public roads around 2020 with a limited version of the four-seater.

The cars in the Concept-I series can also switch to automated driving if it feels like the driver is in a unsafe situation.

Dunnes Stores has announced its closure across the county today, as has the Courts Service, schools and other public services. There's plenty of foliage on them and there has been plenty of precipitation the last few days, so the ground is soft.

Toyota has designed the Concept-i Ride with wheelchair users in mind. The vehicle used in these tests will be based on the Toyota Concept-i that debuted at CES 2017 back in January, and featured an AI personal assistant named Yui.

In the meantime, here are the new debuts expected from the major automakers attending the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show.

One of Toyota's upcoming prototypes, the Concept-i, will feature cameras placed in the vehicle that will analyze the driver's facial expressions and be able to tell when the driver is sleepy or anxious and respond accordingly. This includes adjusting the climate inside of the vehicle and changing how it drives. The Concept-i Ride has gullwing doors and once inside there's a center mounted seat for the driver. It also compares general information, such as news bulletins on the internet, with information on individuals, such as their social media activity. The vehicle can also self-drive and self-park and features the same driver-focused AI.

Toyota wants the Concept-i series to be like a pal or co-pilot, "more than a machine", Toyota Motor Corp. manager Makoto Okabe said in a statement.
