Toyota - i-Real
Original name: トヨタi-リアル
i-REAL CONCEPT AT THE TOKYO MOTOR SHOW
The i-REAL is a personal mobility vehicle made closely in human scale as a step toward commercialisation in the near future.
Represents the next stage of Toyota’s personal mobility vehicle development, following the PM, i-unit and i-swing.
Uses three wheels (two at the front and one at the back), in low-speed mode, shortening its wheelbaseto allow it to manoeuvre naturally among pedestrians at similar eyesight height without taking up a large amount of space; in high-speed mode the wheelbase lengthens to provide a lower centre of gravity and better driving performance.
Ensures safe handling—both to the driver and those around the vehicle—by employing perimeter monitoring sensors to detect when a collision with a person or object is imminent and alerts the driver by emitting a noise and vibrating; at the same time, alerts people around it of its movements through the pleasant use of light and sound.
