Toyota, MIT, Stanford start joint project on driverless cars
In a sign of the role autonomous vehicles will soon play in American society, Toyota will invest $50 million in a new joint project with Stanford University and MIT to advance their development. The project will also focus on artificial intelligence and robotics.
The immediate goal is to reduce and perhaps prevent collisions. Our team will collaborate with Stanford and Toyota to develop advanced architectures that allow cars to better perceive and navigate their surroundings in order to make safe driving decisions, said Professor Daniela Rus, who will lead the research at MIT. The project also aims to help older consumers drive more easily with artificial intelligence technologies.Download Bulletin PDF
