Toyota offered test drives of an experimental vehicle featuring a newly developed automated driving system, Urban Teammate, during the 42nd G7 Summit in Ise-Shima, held on May 26 and 27.
In keeping with the philosophy behind Toyota’s Mobility Teammate Concept ― which the company claims is a unique approach to automated driving that “stresses the importance of a partner-like relationship between people and cars” – the Urban Teammate system was created to test the application of automated driving technologies on ordinary roads.
Urban Teammate is Toyota’s successor to Highway Teammate, which was unveiled in October last year. Highway Teammate was developed exclusively to enable vehicles to handle every aspect of highway driving without assistance, including negotiating on-ramps and exit ramps.
