Toyota unveiled their Concept-i vehicle at CES 2017 in Las Vegas. According to the company, the concept car is created around the company's belief that the future of cars should be friendly, fun, and focused on you.
The car was designed by Toyota’s CALTY Design Research in Newport Beach, California. As well as with user experience technology development from the Toyota Innovation Hub in San Francisco.
The Concept-i also leverages the power of what Toyota calls "an advanced artificial intelligence (AI) system" to anticipate your needs.
“At Toyota, we recognize that the important question isn’t whether future vehicles will be equipped with automated or connected technologies,” said Bob Carter, senior vice president of automotive operations for Toyota. “It is the experience of the people who engage with those vehicles. Thanks to Concept-i and the power of artificial intelligence, we think the future is a vehicle that can engage with people in return.”
