Toyota Research Institute “deeply satisfied” with results of $100M collaborative research program with US universities

Toyota Research Institute (TRI) announced the latest results of its collaborative research program with US academic institutions. This initiative has funded $100M of research and generated more than 1,250 paper submissions since its inception in 2016, making it one of the largest collaborative research programs by an automotive company in the world.

The program expanded during 2022 to include 21 university partners and 61 projects focused on energy and materials, human-centered artificial intelligence, human interactive driving, machine learning, and robotics.

Each project consists of a TRI researcher working with a university team in a close collaboration bridging academia and industry…

TRI plans to continue the program into 2024 with new additional high-risk, high-reward projects to accelerate the development of key technologies for Toyota.
