Toyota shows off AI-powered concept

Toyota shows off AI-powered concept”

For the Tokyo Motor Show this year, Toyota has revealed another concept auto - or series, we should say, because there's actually several individual vehicles that go together. Toyota says over time the RIDE will then be able to predict the driver's feelings through the use of AI technology. In fact, the Concept-i is a two seater electric vehicle and once you open the door, the electrically operated seat automatically slides to the entrance, thus making it easier for those in a wheelchair to move to the car's seat.

The 2017 Tokyo motor show kicks off on October 25th.

Proportionally, the RIDE measures in at 2,500mm long, 1,300mm wide and 1,500mm tall, which makes it slightly larger than a Renault Twizy.

In addition, a joystick is used, eliminating the steering wheel, accelerator and brake pedals, and the vehicle size enables wheelchair users to park and enter/exit a common parking space for one vehicle, with emphasis placed on easy operation while driving, and stopping or parking.

You'll never be bored on the road again as the Concept-i can also have a conversation with you, it will suggest topics based on mood and what has been called an "Emotion map", that effectively geo-tags your particular moods to find out patterns and create the best user experience. The personal mobility vehicle features three wheels and operates in a similar way to a Segway, with the driver using their body weight to move the vehicle forward and backwards. It's also equipped with onboard sensors to warn drivers of impending dangers - we could be looking at the beginning of autonomous electric walking here. But that futuristic four-seater is now joined by two more to form the Concept-i Series. It's of course electric and looks ready to take the sidewalk just like a pedestrian while traveling up to 20 km (12.4 miles) before recharging.
