In October 2011, Toyota Motor Corporation (TMC) hosted an exhibit at the 18th annual World Congress on Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) in Orlando, Florida. The theme of TMC’s exhibit was “Rewarded with a smile by exceeding your expectations,” a key phrase from the Toyota Global Vision announced in March of this year.
The congress was held over five days, consisting of informative sessions, exhibits, and technical tours by ITS-related groups from all over the world to showcase their ITS research. The congress is held annually in alternating locations in Europe, the Asia-Pacific region, and the Americas.
Toyota’s Pre-Collision System (PCS) and the Adaptive Driving Beam (ADB) were just two of the technologies demonstrated at this year’s congress. An outdoor test-drive course was used to demonstrate the collision-avoidance support PCS.
