Written by KFAT on January 29, 2020
Japanese automaker Toyota announced it is planning to build a prototype âcity of the futureâ at the base of Japanâs Mt. Fuji, powered by different hydrogen fuel cells and functioning as a laboratory for autonomous vehicles, artificial intelligence, âsmart homesâ and other technologies.
During the Monday CES technology industry show, the Japanese company unveiled its plan and pointed out that the development, to be built at the site of a factory that will be closed will be called âWoven City,â which is a reference to Toyotaâs start as a loom manufacturing plant. Toyota also said that this city would serve as a home to full-time researchers and residents.
Executives of some of the most important automakers in the world have been talking over the last few years about how cities of the future could be designed to cut climate-changing emissions from buildings and vehicles, apply internet technology to everyday life and also reduce congestions in big cities.
Toyotaâs plan to build a futuristic community on 71 hectares represents a major step beyond what some of its competitors have proposed.
