Although has pretty much abandoned plans for the electric Toyota iQ, Toyota is set to unveil a new electric vehicle, the Smart INSECT at the CEATEC electronics show in Japan. The Smart INSECT (Information Network Social Electric City Transporter) is a one-seater electric vehicle that uses motion sensors, voice recognition and behavior prediction software to connect to the driver.
According to Toyota the name of the Smart INSECT “conveys an image of a small insect that flies around on large wings, in the same way as the vehicle freely navigates through and uses an information network.” The Smart INSECT’s gullwing doors can open with the simple wave of a hand and it uses facial recognition software to make sure the driver is the owner of the car.
