Toyota Research Institute Highlights Autonomous Vehicle Platforms

The Toyota Research Institute (TRI) recently shared a video showcasing its Guardian and Chauffeur autonomous vehicle platforms, providing four different demonstrations of this cutting-edge technology.

Meant to detail the progress that TRI has made with Platform 2.1, the next-generation advanced safety research vehicle, the video starts off with two examples of the Chauffeur system at work before finishing with two viewings of the Guardian system. Platform 2.1 is capable of testing both systems on one vehicle, through the use of a shared sensor stack and software.

Chauffeur assesses SAE Level 4/5 autonomous driving, with the tests detailing the vehicle's ability to sense unexpected objects in its path, navigate around obstacles, detect nearby vehicles and adapt to these situations while driving itself on a closed course.

The Guardian tests showcased the system's ability to protect the vehicle and its occupants when the driver does not react to a potentially perilous situation. The Guardian system also monitors the driver's eyes to check for indications of sleepy or distracted driving, and steps in to control the vehicle if needed.

Here at Shore Toyota, we're eager to see these and other technologies are applied to future vehicles. To meet with a member of our team and check out our extensive inventory of Toyota vehicles, drop by our showroom at 4236 Black Horse Pike in Mays Landing.
