New Test Ground for Latest Technology
This is another breakthrough global innovation development for investors to explore. Toyota is building what it calls "Woven City".  It's a futuristic city powered by the latest technologies to be built at the base of Mt. Fuji in Japan.  Ground is going to be broken in 2021.  Toyota has selected renowned Danish architect Bjarke Ingels, who designed 2 World Trade Center and the new Google headquarters, to design the new city.

Toyota Cityscapes
Woven City will serve as a test ground for Toyota's emerging tech lab, the Toyota Research Institute to help shape the future of cities.  The city will be powered by solar panels and hydrogen fuel cells.  Driving will be autonomous.  Homes will be equipped with robots.  Underground robots will provide package delivery services. Self-driving electric vehicles will shuttle people around town.  Self-driving EVs will also deliver food and service retail organizations.

Novel Travel Systems
As a global automotive leader, Toyota has designed three rings around the circumference of the city.  The outermost ring is a lane for autonomous vehicles.  The second lane will be for micromobility vehicles like bikes and scooters, as well for use by pedestrians.  And, the innermost ring will be a "park-like promenade" for pedestrians.  It's Toyota vision into the future of global cities that are green, autonomous and robotic.  And it is soon to be built as a real test ground for building the urban future.  For a sample read of journalist Ed Kane's latest book "Investing in Disruptive Innovations", go to
