Toyota plans to build a Prototype City

January 7, 2020



Toyota President and CEO Akio Toyoda (L) and Danish architect Bjarke Ingel reveal plans to build a prototype "city" of the future on a 175-acre site at the base of Mt. Fuji in Japan during the Toyota press conference at the 2020 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Nevada on January 6, 2020.

Envisioned as a "living laboratory," the hydrogen cell-powered Woven City will serve as a home to full-time residents and researchers who will be able to test and develop technologies such as autonomy, robotics, personal mobility, smart homes and artificial intelligence in a real-world environment. CES is one of the largest tech shows on the planet, showcasing more than 4,500 exhibiting companies representing the entire consumer technology ecosystem. AFP-Jiji Press
