Toyota Showcasing Future Technology at World Congress in Detroit

The hydrogen fuel cell car that Toyota wants to make as popular as the Prius might have took the scene lately, leaving the automaker’s other projects sit in the penumbra. Don’t worry, nothing got left behind and the automaker will put us up to speed with what else is on the working bench next week.

Starting September 7th, the 21st Intelligent Transport System (ITS) World Congress will be held in Detroit and under this year’s “Reinventing Transportation in our Connected World” theme, Toyota will have the chance to display its wide-ranging initiatives aimed at developing a smart mobility society which links people, cars and cities.

For those not familiar with the subject, Toyota wants to implement a vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure cooperative ITS aimed at creating a faster and safer transportation reality.

A total of eight information sessions will be held on behalf of Toyota to promote their new technology while the outdoor demonstrations will also allow visitors to experience advanced drive support systems on a highway.

The indoor exhibit will concentrate on four main things:
  • Toyota’s safety initiatives: detailing the automaker’s years of work on active safety technologies as well as information concerning an advanced driving support system.
  • Cooperative ITS exhibit: displaying next-generation functions (vehicle and pedestrian detection), prototypes of on-board devices and wireless antenna with visible-image-based vehicle sensor. A simulator will be there too for people to experience the vehicle-to-vehicle cooperative system.
  • Automated driving technologies: showcasing an advanced driving support system allowing a stable and smooth drive on highways.
  • Fuel cell vehicle: a bare chassis of the Toyota FCV will be displayed showing how the system works as well as display panels showing how Toyota ended up creating the vehicle.

Hosted by ITS America, the congress will be held in Detroit, Michigan, from september 7 to 11.
