In 2021, Toyota is starting to build a smart city to test the newest technology, AI, Robotics and self-driving cars in real life, announced the Toyota Motor Corp President Akio Toyoda.
Woven city will be built close to Mount Fuji in Japan, with design led by danish architect Bjarke Ingels. Buildings are planned to be built from wood, using robotised solutions and equipped with various cutting edge home AI Internet of Things for human assistance.
Toyota’s smart city will be powered by hydrogen fuel cells and solar panels, and will remain free of traditional cars. Only self-driving autonomous electric vehicles will be permitted to enter the main streets.
175-acre smart city will initially welcome 2000 residents, who together with scientists will taste the city of the future, reads the city webpage:
“This “living laboratory” will include full time residents and researchers who will test and develop technologies such as autonomy, robotics, personal mobility and smart homes, in a real-world environment”
