The Toyota Woven City is a fully connected ecosystem powered by hydrogen fuel cells to be built at the base of Mt. Fuji in Japan. It is envisioned as a ‘living laboratory’ and ‘ever evolving,’ incorporating various types of cutting edge technologies. At the same time, it is also ‘human-centric,’ that is, it is expected to keep people safe and comfortable.
Our mission is to:
1. Develop services and products for Woven City
2. Expand capabilities through long-term R&D
Our team will develop innovative services that are essential to the city. As a first party developer, we will also build a foundation upon which third party partners can participate. Therefore, we are responsible for not just the applications but also the core software and capabilities.
