WILL SELF-DRIV­ING HIT THE SWEET SPOT?

Toyota Connect/Lexus Life - - ON THE MOVE -

Self-driv­ing ve­hi­cles and other ad­vanced tech­nolo­gies could re­ally ben­e­fit road safety, but how well will driv­ers re­ceive them? To find out, Toy­ota’s Col­lab­o­ra­tive Safety Re­search Cen­tre is con­duct­ing stud­ies with five Amer­i­can in­sti­tu­tions.

“The de­vel­op­ment of ad­vanced ve­hi­cle tech­nolo­gies may be pro­gress­ing faster than the abil­ity of some peo­ple to fully un­der­stand their ca­pa­bil­i­ties,” says Chuck Gu­lash, the cen­tre’s Di­rec­tor. “By openly shar­ing our in­sights with the broader au­to­mo­tive, gov­ern­ment, NGOS and tech­nol­ogy com­mu­ni­ties, we be­lieve we can im­prove so­ci­ety’s ac­cep­tance of th­ese new and promis­ing tech­nolo­gies.”
