Environment, Energy and Powertrain
In order to enable the sustainable growth of humankind, the three most critical issues are to find ways to use energy efficiently, develop new sources of energy, and preserve the earth's environment. We conduct broad research in these fields to actively respond to these challenges.
Materials and Monozukuri (Processing)
Materials and monozukuri (processing) technologies are extremely critical to all forms of industry as common base technologies. We conduct diverse field ranging from research into new high-performance as well as eco-friendly materials, to the development of process technologies.
Information, Safety & Comfort and Electronics
Increasing safety and comfort in a car-based society requires greater performance and functionality from the vehicles themselves, and better communication, both between people and cars and between cars and the social environment. We conduct diverse research in this field, from the development of associated devices to technologies that support systems solutions.
Research Fundamental Technologies
Research fundamental technologies are essential to support the execution of advanced research and development. Toyota Central R&D Labs., Inc. prepares these technologies with strong research capabilities, backed by specialists able to leverage state-of-the-art facilities and sophisticated technologies.
