TRI-AD was established in March, 2018 in
Over the past two years TRI-AD has made great progress in fulfilling its vision and mission, including the development of the latest advanced driving assist technology called, “Teammate (3)” based on the “Mobility Teammate Concept (4).” TRI-AD is now embarking on the next phase of its evolution to deliver mobility (including the mobility of people, goods, and information) to everyone, and in order to achieve this it is necessary to expand and improve the company’s operations.
In order to effectively and efficiently forge ahead with TRI-AD’s advanced development capabilities and to continue creating new value through automated driving, safety technologies, mobility, and Woven City, the
– Woven CORE will continue to be responsible for the development of the
– Woven Alpha will explore new areas for business expansion and incubate new innovative projects such as Woven City, Arene, and AMP.
We started TRI-AD in
Now we would like to take TRI-AD to the next stage and prepare our company for unparalleled growth, speed, and quality, which will lead the way into the future. It is my firm belief that this will all be possible under the new
We will work hard with all of our stakeholders and partners to create tremendous new value, new technologies, and new products at a speed and scale that
Comment from President
At the beginning of the year,
Now, TRI-AD will be reorganized into three new companies, and, to make clearer what the companies should remember as their mission, the names of all three companies include “Woven” in their titles.
The name, “Woven,” was derived from the word “weave.” The inspiration partly came from the way the three types of streets for separate forms of mobility looked, crossing one another as if they had been woven together in the planned layout for the new city. However, there is another significant meaning behind the word “Woven.”
Later, Kiichiro manufactured automobiles with a strong desire to make society happier by contributing to the prosperity of society at large, starting from
The prototype city took “Woven” as part of its name then to also signify the desire and action that we have to take to bring happiness to others, especially when we venture into an uncharted future with this continuously evolving project.
TRI-AD was launched 2 years ago to realize
Now, please allow me to elaborate on the names of the three companies.
Next, “Woven CORE.” Woven CORE will be responsible for the realization of new mobility. This new mobility will have automated driving technology at its core.
Finally, “Woven Alpha.” In this name, the word “Alpha” means “unknown” or “immeasurable.” Woven Alpha will be responsible for the R&D needed to pave the way to the future, including the living laboratory work that will be conducted within Woven City.
Reorganized under the name “Woven,” TRI-AD will endeavor to become the type of organization that will allow those involved to step on the accelerator in helping realize a future where people can be more happy.
To make it more open and collaborative, the one thing that will purposefully be missing from these 3 new companies, Woven Planet, Woven CORE, and Woven Alpha is the “Toyota” branding.
Regardless, these companies will clear the path for the future of
An open platform developed by TRI-AD to create programmable cars. It includes elements and APIs necessary for vehicle safety and enables speedy development from concept to deployment. It also allows developers and OEMs to continuously update their software in an agile way while maintaining a high level of safety and security.
(2) Automated Mapping Platform (AMP) :
An open software platform that allows companies to create and share high-precision maps while companies share data on automated-driving vehicles.
A technology that enables onboard systems for driver status monitoring to appropriately assist the driver with perception, prediction and planning, in accordance with actual traffic conditions. It supports driving capabilities such as keeping the vehicle in its lane, maintaining vehicle-to-vehicle distance, lane splits, lane changing, and the overtaking of other vehicles, when driving on expressways and other motor-vehicle-only roadways.
(4) Mobility Teammate Concept:
(5) Software Defined Architecture:
A software-defined architecture for application services. This enables the extension of application services and software functionality with ease, allowing hardware to be designed in response to the changing times, while at the same time providing high value with agility.
