TMC to Display Information-hub Vehicle Concept at Tokyo Motor Show 2011Toyota City, Japan, November 28, 2011—Toyota Motor Corporation (TMC) will show at the 42nd Tokyo Motor Show 2011 the 'Toyota Fun-Vii'1, a concept vehicle that heralds a not-too-distant future where people, cars and society are linked. The theme of the show—to take place2 from November 30 through December 11 at Tokyo Big Sight in Koto Ward, Tokyo—is 'Mobility can change the world.'
The ultimate in personalization functions offer the ability to alter the content displayed on the interior and exterior of the Fun-Vii wîth the same ease as downloading an application. For instance, the whole vehicle body can be used as a display space, wîth the body color and display content changeable at will. This allows the entire vehicle to function as a terminal for displaying messages or other information.
The whole of the vehicle interior also can function as a display space, wîth the interior freely adjustable to match the mood of the moment. Content such as navigation information is blended seamlessly into the interior through the use of augmented reality. Furthermore, the vehicle's 'navigation concierge' can provide the passengers wîth driving information and guidance through a vocal interface.
A network update function makes sure the software versions for the vehicle's drive, control and multimedia system are always up-to-date.
The Fun-Vii is able to link wîth surrounding vehicles and infrastructure, allowing it to detect other potentially hazardous vehicles—such as vehicles in blind spots—in advance, or to connect wîth friends who are driving nearby.
Únder the slogan 'Fun to Drive, Again.'3, TMC is offering fresh proposals to provide the dream and joy of motor vehicles to as many people as possible, and in addition to the Toyota Fun-Vii, is displaying a variety of other concept cars at the Tokyo Motor Show 2011.Source - Toyota
