Toyota to Show Latest Intelligent Transport System Safety and Environmental Initiatives at World Congress in Detroit

Tokyo, Sept 3, 2014 - (JCN Newswire) - Toyota Motor Corporation will exhibit at the 21st Intelligent Transport System (ITS) World Congress - Detroit (hosted by ITS America), to be held in Detroit, Michigan, U.S. from September 7 to 11.

Under the congress theme "Reinventing Transportation in our Connected World", exhibitors will showcase to the world the new added-value, functions and safety that connected cars and automated driving technologies promise.

Toyota's participation is part of its wide-ranging initiatives aimed at developing a smart mobility society that links people, cars and cities. This year, Toyota's booth will feature its latest technologies, centered on safety and the environment.

Toyota will show a vehicle-to-infrastructure cooperative ITS aimed at creating a safe transportation reality. The system utilizes vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure communication, automated driving technologies and advanced driving support systems based on highway driving conditions in North America. The superior environmental performance of Toyota's fuel-cell sedan scheduled for launch in the U.S. in 2015 and a vision of new energy utilization are also key to the system concept.

The ITS World Congress is the world's largest ITS-related international conference. Held annually in Europe, the Asia-Pacific and the Americas on a rotating basis, the congress invites ITS developers (governments, research bodies and commercial enterprises) from a wide range of countries and regions to showcase their latest ITS research findings and products through information sessions (including technical paper presentations) and exhibitions. Toyota has been an active participant since the first Congress, exhibiting research results on ITS technologies, safety- and environment-related products and services.
