Toyota FV2 doesn’t use a steering wheel, instead, it is operated by the driver shifting his or her body to intuitively move the vehicle forward, back, left, or right. Can you imagine driving your car like this? It would be awesome experience. This futuristic vehicle features intelligent transport system technology to connect with other vehicles in the area and traffic infrastructure, it offers safe driving by providing a variety of safety information such as blind spots and advance warnings.
When you ride FV2, you grow with your vehicle. It’s one of Toyota’s visions to be able to develop driver-vehicle relationship of trust and understanding, just like a rider has with his/her horse. The artificial intelligence of this vehicle can recognize driver’s mood through his/her voice and facial expression, it will then accumulate driving history to suggest destinations. The augmented reality display on the windshield can be adjusted at will to create more intimate environment between vehicle and driver.
