Toyota Motor Corporation has taken a pledge to make driving safer and reduce the fatalities from traffic accidents to zero. As part of their initiative, the automaker has developed automated driving technologies which will help them achieve their goals. One of the approaches taken by the Toyota company is called the Mobility Teammate Concept which will ensure an enhanced open communication between the drivers and cars to help them communicate if and when the need for mutual assist arises.

In a blog post the company has explained, “Rather than cars taking over driving from people and taking their place, drivers and cars act as partners to protect one another so that drivers can enjoy the experience of driving while deferring to automated driving at times, achieving truly safe, secure and unrestricted mobility.”

Toyota Motor has launched the new Lexus and Mirai models in Japan on 8th April 2021 equipped with the company’s latest driving technologies. As per the reports, the new automobiles can achieve up to Level 2 autonomous driving. Moreover, the Advanced Drive integrated into the cars will ensure that the vehicle keeps its distance from other vehicles on highways and help the vehicle driving in the lane. The new LS has been launched, and the new Mirai is expected to arrive in Japan on April 12 2021. Furthermore, both the cars will come equipped with an advanced parking assist system which gives the added safety of parking easily and without any hassle.

James Kuffner, head of Woven Planet, Toyota’s R&D department, said in an online release on Thursday, “This is an important first step for us to move towards software-first development.”

The new Toyota Lexus LS will be priced somewhere between 16.3 million and 19.9 million yen, whereas the second-gen Mirai is expected to be priced between 8.4 million and 8.6 million yen.
