Automotive industry has to deal with the safety and environmental issues.

First, for automotive fuels in the future, we have to think about alternatives to oil. The portfolio of power train should also be considered; Battery EV, Hybrid EV, Plug-in Hybrid EV, and Hydrogen Fuel Cell EV.

Then, the safety devises and driver assistant systems that Toyota is developing will be introduced. Before we reach the ‘full automated driving’, the ‘advanced driving assist system’ has to be accomplished; lateral and longitudinal motion control, traffic control, platoon control ,and so on. Not only in-vehicle system, but ITS (Intelligent Transport Systems) will be discussed.
