Toyots’a “i-unit” aims at uniting the driver and vehicle to expand human abilities and possibilities.
The upright position allows the wearer/driver to move among other people, while inclined position ensures stable handling and high speed.
A driver support information system uses sound, light and vibration to facilitate interactive communication.
The body is built using environmentally friendly plant-based materials such as kenaf.
The mountable, walking “i-foot” robot can climb the stair and is driven with a joystick.
Now, my obsession is to go to EXPO 2005 in Aichi next year where these prototypes will be displayed.
