Toyota’s newly-formed research institute is to begin developing the next generation of automotive technology as part of a $1 billion research effort. The Toyota Research Institute features teams working both at both the Stanford University in California and at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The TRI is headed by Dr. Gill Pratt, who told journalists at the Consumer ElectronicsShow that “we can’t just look to solve driving when it’s easy, we need to solve driving when it’s hard.” Four mandates will guide the TRI’s research efforts. The first is to enhance the safety of cars, resulting in a car which is ‘incapable’ of causing an accident. The second mandate calls for the TRI to “increase access to cars to those who cannot otherwise drive,” specifically for older people. The third mandate calls for the sharing of expertise, with the objective of creating products for indoor mobility as well as outdoor. Finally, the last mandate states that the TRI will use learning from artificial technology studies to support future robotics. Although around 30 research projects have already been approved, two were highlighted at CES. The first, lead by the Stanford team, has been dubbed “Uncertainty on Uncertainty,” and is designed to teach… Read full this story
