The Japanese capital and its renowned automotive event have been assaulted by concept cars that can drive without human input and remain true friends of the planet because they don’t emit a single ounce of pollution.
These green autonomous driving vehicles have been the focus of the renowned for its quirkiness Tokyo Motor Show – though this time around the visions might soon become a reality. Japan is the home of the biggest seller of automobiles – Toyota – and the company itself pledged to reduce polluting emissions from its vehicles by a whopping 90 percent by 2050. The show is also keen on reestablishing the love for the automobile, which has been disintegrating at the younger generation level in the country, as well as pushing ahead with plans to make Japan a leader both in terms of automated technology and green vehicles. Nissan, which came up with the IDS concept (“intelligent driving system”) has said it plans to phase in more and more autonomous features by 2020, when its vehicles would be able to drive themselves in virtually any condition.
Honda meanwhile has introduced the Clarity fuel cell vehicle, designed to compete from next year with Toyota’s Mirai and the automaker also pointed out all of Japan’s companies are rushing to have both green and self-driving technologies ready in time for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. Their drive – have zero polluting autonomous cars pickup the star athletes from airports and shuttle them to the Olympic Village. The top executives still forwarded their reservations – saying the imaginative human brain still has the upper hand over artificial intelligence in unexpected situations.
