Concepts are an opportunity for us to give you a glimpse at the Toyota of the future, and in some cases this future comes sooner than you think.
The Ultralifter is a member of the A.I. Teamwork concept, focusing on lifting at height and working together with other drones. The large information screen communicates a design well-thought-out for information visualisation. All this is packaged in a compact and simplified design that mediates Approachable Robustness. An AI guides the Ultralifter in optimising speeds and routes without human intervention. Ability to rotate around its axle and the compact dimensions enhance the load handling performance. AI enables optimised design both in terms of sustainability and productivity for individual vehicles.
Inspired by lean thinking, the Toyota pallet drone is a vehicle that can be trained to become a digital twin of a real warehouse. This way the pallet drone can learn to recognize people and objects, as well as to make decisions and prioritize certain actions. The pallet drone can work as part of a team thanks to its on-board artificial intelligence and cloud collaboration. This allows for faster deployment of automated solutions at customer sites and flexibility to continually optimise the material flow.
