Toyota's New 'Concept-i' Makes Self-Driving Cars Totally Customized

By Brian Spaen

Toyota will be debuting a new concept car at the Tokyo Motor Show at the end of October. The new vehicle line is “Concept-i” and the artificial intelligence inside of them is expected to take things a step further in autonomous vehicles. With it, the driver will be able to interact with the vehicle while the AI learns more about its driver.

At the moment, focus is on making self-driving vehicles 100 percent safe. Understandably, skeptics are struggling to understand how a vehicle will be able to make all the decisions that we can in a moment's notice. For example, a GPS system won’t be able to guide cars in every area, and we need to be certain that self-driving cars won’t pose a hazard for other drivers or pedestrians on the road.

In similar form to having these cars talk to each other in order to understand their surroundings, Toyota is attempting to add an AI called “Yui” to improve the experience. Yui would feature technology that learns from its drivers and attempts to cater to them. Essentially, each driver would have a slightly different experience in the vehicle.
