Also, should the elderly who have difficulty driving a car can take advantage of to develop artificial intelligence. Intelligent systems could include errors of drivers can recognize, to correct them if any.

There will be research on the campuses of Stanford University and MIT, the two American scientific institutions that Toyota is working with. The company is investing a total of $ 50 million, representing approximately 45 million euros for the development of artificial intelligence. The money is being invested over a five year period. When the first concrete results are expected is not clear.

From the information that Toyota has released is not directly or is also working on technology to make cars self-propelled. This is something that many car manufacturers use in recent years.
