Toyota CSRC to study autonomous and connected technologies

0

Toyota’s Collaborative Safety Research Center (CSRC) is to undertake a raft of new research programs to study the opportunities and address the challenges of emerging vehicle technologies.

The 11 projects, launched in partnership with eight leading research institutions in North America, mark the first projects launched under CSRC Next, the center’s new five-year program that continues to support a safer transition to the future of mobility.

The research projects will focus on the impact of advanced technology on broader road safety trends and the interaction between humans and machines.

Specific research challenges include the integration of advanced active safety systems, such as AEB, and passive systems; human experience design for advanced technology vehicles; driver state detection; and using analytics to help improve the study of naturalistic driving data.

“Autonomous and connected vehicle technologies are only just beginning to transform the transportation landscape,” said Chuck Gulash, director of CSRC.

“By working together with world-renowned institutions and making our results public, we are proud to help realize the promise of advanced mobility solutions and a safe, convenient transportation future.”
