The engineers and designers at Toyota Research Institute-Advanced Development, Inc. (TRI-AD) are developing new software-driven technologies that will forever transform how we move. Our multi-layered automated solution will define the vehicle of the future, enhancing and safeguarding mobility all over the world. At the core of our approach are two revolutionary driver-assistance technologies, Guardian and Chauffeur. How you interact with and respond to these driving assistants is artfully orchestrated by a revolutionary User Interface and User Experience built on the brand new, and always evolving, Toyota Design System.
From on-ramp to off-ramp. Teammate takes control while entering a freeway, and hands it off once you exit. You can finally ignore the traffic jam and focus on what's important to you.
Toyota Guardian ™
Keeps you safe. Guardian expands vision and sharpens reflexes. You maintain control while the vigilant co-pilot monitors for potential danger or loss-of-control, intervening only when necessary.
Gets you there. This technology takes all responsibility for driving. A platform for fully automated transport of passengers, goods, and services to anywhere the roads can take them.
Toyota Design System
The Toyota Design System is the bridge that will unite machine, AI and driver. It is the backbone of an engaging and personalized User Experience that adapts to, and reflects, the personality of the driver as well as elegantly communicates what the car is seeing and thinking. By unifying all of Toyota’s design experience across the globe, and by employing a user-centered design process, TDS will come to represent a new standard of product excellence.
