Toyota looks to the future of self-driving vehicles

Autonomous vehicle technology is being developed but one question often asked is, how will it be tested? Toyota Research Institute (TRI) found the answer on a course in Concord, CA.

TRI entered into an agreement with GoMentum Station to test its autonomous vehicle technology on a 5,000-acre course that has varied terrain, real-life infrastructure including roads, bridges, tunnels, intersections and parking lots.

The course will allow TRI to test its new technology in two ways. They call them Guardian and Chauffeur. The Guardian platform is more traditional, with a human driver in control of the car and an automated driving system running in the background. The Chauffer platform takes it a step further with the vehicle being controlled completely by the automated system, making all the occupants passengers.
