Toyota smart area at the foot of Mount Fuji
At the CES 2020 trade fair, Toyota and the BIG architectural bureau showed the plans to build the Toyota Woven City, a smart city to be located at the foot of Mount Fuji in Japan. The new city will become a full-scale laboratory, in which Toyota will be able to test the best high-tech solutions, from unmanned vehicles to the hydrogen energy infrastructure and robotic support services.
All the buildings in the city will be built of wood and equipped with roof solar panels. Also, the developers' plan provides for special lanes for unmanned vehicles and micromobility means (bicycles, electric scooters, etc.) to be established on the city roads.
