Toyota Concept-I - The Future is Now!
|   Thursday, January 26, 2017
At the innovations exhibition CES 2017 the people at Toyota have revealed the true car of the future!
Called Concept-i, it was designed by Toyota Calty Design Research from California and Toyota Innovation Hub from San Francisco. The designers have created a very futuristic character, with a face that interacts with the world around it!

Due to the flashing optical blocks, the information which appears on the doors and the rear, the Toyota Concept-i can greet the driver with a message or alert other road users about the vehicle's intentions with messages or warning signs.


According to Toyota's officials, the new Concept-i is focusing on the relationship between driver and vehicle, which is more important than driving alone or modern connectivity. The vehicle must be a reliable companion for the driver and this connection is achieved by the artificial intelligence named Yui.

Toyota states that the heart of the Concept-i is the artificial intelligence that learns together with the driver to create a relationship that is human-like and meaningful. The artificial intelligence system indicates not only routes, or tracking the user's schedule, but knows how to identify the various locations experienced by the driver when actually driving. The system basically makes a map based on the places in the world where the driver traveled. Toyota says that this way the artificial intelligence will use mobility to improve the life of the user.

Toyota Concept-i is also able to drive autonomous. It lets the driver choose whether he wants to control the steering wheel or not, but the car monitors the driver's attention, road condition, and intervenes by assisting the driver when needed. It likewise assists the driver to drive the car when running under challenging conditions.

Interacting with the driver is done via Yui's interface. In fact, it is considered by Toyota as more of a personal assistant for the driver. Concretely, it is an animated circle displayed on the board. This generic form of Yui is designed for the virtual assistant to be easily accepted into every culture and in every geographic region. Yui notifies the driver providing warnings and information through lights, voice and sound.

The Concept-i is more human-like even in that it winks. Specifically, the front lights, which take the place of position lights are animated so you can perceive that the car has personality and winks. Concept-i proves friendly with welcome messages which are illuminated on the bodywork panels.
Of course, the Concept-i is a clear indication for how artificial intelligence will make all connectivity systems praised today to look as primitive forms of interaction with the car.

Today, cars can recommend to take a coffee break if you spend too much time behind the wheel, and we marvel at the connection between our smartphones and the car's infotainment system. A few years into future, however, and the car will become a voice of conscience and it will turn into a real personal assistant. Siri and Cortana are a timid demonstration of what a virtual assistant is. We settled in quickly with this type of interaction but once horizon of artificial intelligence open up interaction with cars will have much wider meanings.
