At Serra Toyota, we know that technology has become increasingly important to drivers in the Gardendale, AL area. You’re not just looking for a vehicle that’s dependable. You want the latest, most useful in-car technology and innovative safety features that give you peace of mind. That’s why it’s no surprise that the Toyota brand has focused so much on offering new technological advances in each new model year. Now it’s launched Toyota AI Ventures, an initiative that will help drive the development of new and advanced tech.

This subsidiary has received its 100 million dollars in funding from the Toyota Research Institute, which focuses on artificial intelligence, robotics, and autonomous vehicle technology. So far Toyota AI Ventures has expressed interest in a few startup companies. One is working on tech that can notice bad driving behaviors and help stop them. Another UK-based startup is working on algorithms that can make it easier for self-driving cars to create a map of their surroundings and know where they are positioned. A third is working on social companion technology.

The companies invested in by Toyota AI Ventures could all eventually create tech that’s used in new Toyota cars. This could pave the way for innovative safety features and eventually lead to the development of fully autonomous vehicles. We can’t wait to see what kind of new and useful features arrive on in our favorite cars thanks to this new initiative!

So when you’re shopping for vehicles that offer the latest technology and useful safety features, visit our Toyota dealership near Gardendale, AL. Our friendly and knowledgeable Toyota dealers can help you find the dependable car, truck, or SUV of your dreams, including brand new Toyota hybrid vehicles. We hope to see you soon for a test drive!
