1. Autonomous driving
Next-generation front module (concept model)
Systems that sense the surroundings using cameras and LIDAR to support autonomous driving are integrated into radiator grilles and other exterior parts, providing both attractive design and safety functions. “Exterior communication lamps” with LEDs that inform people nearby of upcoming vehicle operations are also included.
Next-generation cockpit module (concept model)
This module creates relaxing interior spaces while much of the driving is left to the vehicle. They are equipped with instrument panels and console boxes that function as human-machine interfaces, while next-generation steering wheels are equipped with cameras, sensors and other functions to detect the driver’s condition.
2. Electrified vehicles
Cooling system mock-up (concept model)
This mock-up provides suggestions for the use of plastic cooling pipes to optimize battery and motor cooling systems. Making these pipes of plastic also contributes to lighter vehicle weight.
Plastic battery cases
Plastic battery cases provide a cooling function for longer battery life and insulating function for safety. They are already used on the Corolla/Levin PHV sold in China.
