Toyota has been the leader in vehicle market since the first appeared in 2000. recently announcing they put more of their research and hours into hybrids their development of all electric this does not mean have stopped working on EVs completely. This was confirmed week by the appearance of Toyota’s concept vehicle at the Combined of Advanced Technologies (CEATEC) in Japan. The show is the largest IT and exhibition and conference and is similar to our Electronics show. While it may Smart in the name, Toyota to make sure that is no confusion between their new and the line of cars built by their Smart INSECT is a “smart” vehicle.

Toyota refers to their INSECT as a “next-generation communications-linked model that uses technology (IT) services to its driver’s lifestyle and activities”.

While Toyota does not any specs on this working prototype such as driving charging time or speeds, are it will be a “city-only” low speed that will offer around 30 miles of traveling charges. While these be important factors in the future, now Toyota wants to highlight the technology the vehicle features truly brings a new meaning to

The front-mounted motion sensors used for parking assistance use a system of facial recognition that will know its registered owner is approaching. The INSECT will verify it you as its owner by flashing the headlights then providing a verbal once you enter the vehicle. sensors both inside and the door will detect the hand movement, and will and close the door based on The dash mounted Toyota Center, once its recognizes the voice, will “ask” the what their intention are and any other functions the owner like to use such as turning on the headlamps, etc. The vehicle also connect via the owner’s much like the current system does, allowing the system to be used via voice as well. The voice command will also work the virtual agent of the Toyota Center to control items in

the owner’s home, such as systems, garage door and air conditioning.

While driving, commands take over to do you may want to do such as hear a report, call or text a directions to a specific location or one of any of other things you may desire driving. Once you are parked, the sensors will open the and close it once you are out of the vehicle. the vehicle will only to the owner via the facial recognition, you no worries of it being stolen

While the INSECT may sound another concept car, you to remember that all the technology it is currently being used While not all of it is used on vehicles, the sensors, smartphone integration and activated accessories are in use in a number of that Toyota has on the road Toyota has just found a way to them all together into an looking one passenger EV. None of the is too far-fetched for anyone to think is not a possibility of it appearing on vehicles in the few years. While the Smart may only appeal to a small of people due to its one-person capability, for that are tired of spending on high-priced gas and are the first to have any new gadget that hits

the market, this vehicle is for them. While we may not see this car go production, one thing that is is Toyota bringing more to future vehicles, making easier, safer and undoubtedly fun.
