Toyota And Lexus To Show Autonomous Driving Tech At 2020 Olympics

Toyota's General Manager of Intelligent Vehicle Development has confirmed the automaker will use the 2020 Summer Olympics to showcase an assortment of semi-autonomous vehicles.

Speaking to Automotive News, Ken Koibuchi said the company has big plans for the Olympics which will be held in Tokyo for the first time since 1964.

He declined to go into specifics but said the company will showcase its next-generation semi-autonomous driving system as well as prototypes which preview technology that will be introduced later in the decade. As Koibuchi stated, "We want to show a high-spec technology as a showcase."

Details are light at the moment but the publication notes the Japanese government is pushing automakers to map the country's roads and Koibuchi believes most of the highways will mapped in time for the Olympics. This could pave the way for semi-autonomous vehicles to cruise the highways with relative ease.
