January 19th, 2010 by By auto # Car, Toyota

Concept
Using the communication function, the i-unit is designed as an “anti-collision car.” Therefore, this concept allows for vehicles made in the form of small, lightweight and optimal utilization of energy in driving. As a result, was able to reduce the impact on the environment.

I-Unit – High-Speed Mode

Battery Type                                      : Lithium-ion

Basic form of the I-unit consists of two types: a low-speed mode and a high-speed mode. I-Unit can make a balanced movement within a room or on public roads and developed by offering a “personal mobility” for the driver.

The word “i” has the meaning of “inspire the individual”, inspiring personal. While the word “Unit” is not leading to specific vehicles, but are used to mengindikasika a genre or style. So that could be interpreted as the i-unit “i genre vehicles”, which is a fusion of personal and global.

Performance
i-unit is controlled by the ITS (Intelligent Transport System). During the move, each i-unit to know the current situation that happened and the environment associated with the i-unit other through communication. Working system based on a concept inspired by the movement of fish during the swim will not collide with each other in the same pond.

With the development of ITS, the concept vehicle is capable of minimizing the number of accidents at intersections and even though. This concept vehicle is also capable of reducing the negative environmental impact.

Drive Controller

Grip the steering wheel on the right side to drive the vehicle; restore grip the wheel at the initial position will reduce the speed.

IT Controller

IT Controller is supporting information to motorists to communicate interactively. Button on the left hand driver’s position. Moving the buttons with your fingers will menyampikan to the vehicle driver’s intentions. At the same time, this button also transmits data from the vehicle through the indication lights, vibration and reaction force.

Driver Support System

Circumstances surrounding the i-unit can be monitored via cameras and radar. In addition, the safety system is able to avoid accidents during the move. This system works through communication that occurs between the vehicle and the roads and between the driver to detect the risk through the exchange of information between vehicles.

A Personalized Recognition System

I-Unit perform biometric identification. Specifically, the means to identify the shadow and face through the camera and identify the palm of the hand with IT Controller.
