Toyota to showcase automated research

Toyota to showcase automated researchThe company says the new vehicle has a sensor-rich package which makes it one of the most perceptive automated driving test cars on the road. It says the Luminar LIDAR system with a 200-metre range, which had only tracked the forward direction on TRI’s previous test platform, now covers the vehicle’s complete 360-degree perimeter. This is enabled by four high-resolution LIDAR scanning heads, which precisely detect objects in the environment including notoriously difficult-to-see dark objects.

The shorter-range LIDAR sensors are positioned low on all four sides of the vehicle ― one in each front quarter panel and one each on the front and rear bumpers. These can detect low-level and smaller objects near the car, like children and debris in the roadway. TRI says the new platform remains flexible for incorporating future breakthrough technology as it becomes available.

Production volume is intentionally low to allow for continued flexibility given the quickness with which TRI has progressed in updating its test platform. There have been three major updates, including two new generation test models, in less than a year, and TRI anticipates continued rapid developments.

A share of the new test vehicles will be assembled with the dual cockpit control layout that TRI debuted last summer. This arrangement is for testing TRI’s Guardian approach to automated driving, experimenting with effective methods to transfer vehicle control between the human test driver and the automated system while maintaining a safety driver as a backup. Single cockpit vehicles, like the one on display at CES, are used to test Chauffeur, which is TRI’s approach to full vehicle automation.
