Toyota Building City in Japan
Global Automaker to Build Autonomous, Green City in Japan

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.
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.

Robot, Cut My Lawn Source: Husqvarna Mowers Robo Mowers Powered by Batteries - No Gas It's at the top of my robotic wish list. A robot lawn mower. No astronomical bills and upselling from lawn service companies. Just a nicely cut lawn and no hassles. Innovation seems to be knocking at the front door with news on robotic mowers. Green Robots at the Cutting Edge There's a slew of new robot mowers. Models include Worx Landroid for smaller lawns, Honda that cuts and feeds lawns, Robomow for all-purpose mowing and Husqvarna that's loaded with cell & GPS tech. These mowers aren't cheap. Prices range from $1000 to $3500. They're powered by rechargeable batteries so they're quiet. You pay more for online enhancements. And, if your lawn is loaded with trees and hills, your robot mower is going to be a lot more expensive. Grass Vacuums Robot mowers look a lot like big robot vacuums such as iRobot's Roomba. They roam and groom your lawn. Their
1st Test for CTE, Sports-Related, Traumatic Brain Injuries in the Living Source: Stock images of football players Breakthrough Research and Discoveries by Boston University Scientists CTE is the danger for players inherent in any contact sport. Repeated hard hits to and rattling of the head in the course of games taking a cumulative toll and resulting in traumatic brain injury CTE which is a fatal disease. Until now, there was no way to detect it in the living. The only reference points for doctors were changes in mood and behavior in the patient following a bad hit to the head and concussion.. But now, there is a brain scan test to detect the abnormal protein tau which is an indicator that the disease condition is present. It's an important breakthrough just announced by scientists at Boston University.

Superstar Robot Packers Source: CMC CartonWrap Superstar Customers The Italian packaging company CMC in the medieval town of Citta di Castello has robot machines at the cutting edge of 2019 filling some very big orders for big clients and it delivers. The robotic packaging machine is called CartonWrap. It can box and seal 600 to 1000 items of every shape and size every hour, 24/7, including in tailor made boxes. Clients of the automated packaging machines include Amazon, Walmart and Gucci. Big Business in Italy CMC and CartonWrap are one of 630 companies in Italy making automated packaging machines. This is the new robotic, automated economy and it is one of Italy's fastest growing industries. In fact, the sector is accelerating 9X's faster than the overall Italian economy. It's another example of robotic technology cutting time, costs and in this case packaging waste and creating a whole new avenue of global business that's a disruptor.
