according to The Toyota Research Institute (TRI) today displayed its 2.0 generation advanced safety research vehicle at the companys Prius Challenge event in Sonoma California.
About Toyota Research InstituteToyota Research Institute is a wholly owned subsidiary of Toyota Motor North America under the direction of Dr. Gill Pratt.
This new advanced safety research vehicle is the first autonomous testing platform developed entirely by TRI, and reflects the rapid progress of our autonomous driving program, said TRI CEO Gill Pratt.
The platform is the second generation of the advanced safety research vehicle revealed to the public by Toyota at the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show.
Taking place on March 3, the Prius Challenge brings together a select group of entrepreneurs, technologists and Silicon Valley automotive enthusiasts to engage with the Toyota Research Institute while having some fun at the Sonoma Raceway.
referring to Toyota built itself an all-new autonomous test vehicle, and it’ll be used to chart two different paths to our inevitable autonomous future.
Right now, the technology on this LS 600hL will be used for two different “paths” that Toyota Research Institute is developing — Chauffeur and Guardian.
The Toyota Research Institute developed this test car entirely in house.

It’s always on, and it’s capable of completely unrestricted SAE Level 5 autonomy, meaning no human intervention is required.
referring to By Bob Nagy on March 3, 2017 3:00 PMToyota Research Institute (TRI) unveiled its latest autonomous driving technology in the form of a test car using the current Lexus LS 600hL.
This major update of the original advanced safety research vehicle Toyota first presented at the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show is designed as a plug-and-play test platform that’s extremely flexible as well as being quick and easy to upgrade.
Officially a “2.0 generation” exercise, it’s the first autonomous test platform developed solely by TRI, and “reflects the rapid progress of our autonomous driving program,” said TRI CEO Gill Pratt at a reveal during company’s annual Prius Challenge advanced mobility event in Sonoma, California.
Toyota says that approach makes the package particularly valuable for the use in the near-term to create viable self-driving applications in areas where no high-def mapping currently exists.
