Toyota Recognized for Innovative Research by MIT Technology Review

If there is one thing that stands out about Toyota, it is its continual spirit of innovation. The company has enjoyed a long-standing reputation for its efficient and reliable cars, and today it is committed to making those vehicles ever-better.

How does an automaker stay ahead of the curve?

By diving into territory previously outside of the realm of the auto industry.

In January 2016, the Toyota Research Institute launched, with locations on the east and west coasts. Its initial goals are developing robotics and artificial intelligence that will make cars "too smart to crash," and improve accessibility and mobility support for people with disabilities.

Toyota has also been at the forefront of developing hydrogen-fuel-cell vehicles.

For all its efforts to become more than just a car company, and investing in pioneering research, the MIT Technology Review named Toyota as one of the 50 Smartest Companies of 2016, alongside the likes of SpaceX, Alphabet, and 23andMe.
