The future is fun
The first thing you will notice is the driving position. With no steering wheel to grab hold of, the FV2 is operated by the driver shifting their body weight, intuitively moving the car forwards or backwards, left and right.
Being connected to intelligent transport system technology means you stay safe while having fun. A wide variety of local safety information captured from other vehicles and traffic infrastructure aids the driver of the FV2 to deal with dangers such as blind spots at junctions.
By incorporating technology under development in the Toyota Heart Project, both the driver and the FV2 can grow together. This research programme aims to enhance human and artificial intelligence so as well as talking and listening we will be able to engage each other using expressions, gestures and recollections of past events.
