Putting Advanced Toyota Tech to the Test


When you shop for a car here at Bell Road Toyota, you know that each one of these models has been put to the test. A vehicle like 2018 Toyota Camry has been evaluated by Toyota engineers again and again to make sure that it delivers a great driving experience. The Toyota brand also does its best to stay ahead of the curve when it comes to automotive tech. That's why it shouldn't be a surprise that it's opening up a new test track dedicated exclusively to autonomous vehicle tech


Autonomous cars come with some unique challenges, so the Toyota brand is building a new test track that would focus on these types of vehicles specifically. The Toyota Research Institute is building  a track at the Michigan Technical Resource Park that would do its best to emulate some of the most common environments that an autonomous car would have to navigate. That includes crowded city streets and highways complete with on-ramps and off-ramps. This track will even simulate rainy conditions with some slicker roads.

The main advantage of this test track is that it will allow the Toyota brand to push its tech to the limits in a safe environment. Some autonomous vehicle technology is already being carried out on public roads, but that comes with its own host of issues and hazards. On the other hand, a typical track has its own limitations. A test track that properly simulates common driving positions offers Toyota engineers the best of both worlds, without the drawbacks. We can't wait to see how this new technology evolves.

If you're looking for a new car that offers incredible tech, you just need to visit our Toyota dealership serving Scottsdale, AZ. The Toyota brand is always committed to bringing you the best safety features and in-car technology. So visit us for a test drive today!
