2003 Toyota PM

Designed to 'meet, link and hang out,' the PM is a 'wearable' single-person vehicle that targets driver-vehicle unity and offers advanced vehicle-to-vehicle communication.

1. Driver-vehicle unity with ergonomic focus: Cabin and seat shape are designed to fit almost like a glove, while integrating the driver's intention with the car's capabilities.

2. Variable 'lifelike' posture: The cabin and wheel-suspension structure are separated, allowing the PM to vary its posture according to speed and to facilitate entry and exit. Antennae-like headlamps contribute to the image of an exotic life form.

3. Space input display: A floating virtual display senses driver finger position and shows vehicle data, locations of other PMs and other information.

4. Vehicle-to-vehicle communication: PMs can share information as they travel, follow a leader in platoon formation and rendezvous automatically.

5. A further evolution of the PM concept called the 'i-unit' will be featured at the Toyota Group Pavilion at EXPO 2005 AICHI, to be held in Aichi Prefecture, Japan, beginning March 25, 2005.
