Toyota Motor Corporation engages in the design, manufacture, assembly, and sale of passenger cars, minivans, and commercial vehicles. It sells its vehicles in approximately 170 countries and regions, including Japan, North America, Europe, and Asia. Toyota Motor Corporation has collaboration with Microsoft Corporation for the development and deployment of telematics applications on the Windows Azure platform for electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles.
In addition, Toyota also develops humanoid robots. Toyota’s most recent humanoid robot prototype (one of many partner robots the automotive giant is developing) stands 130cm tall and weighs 50Kgr. Its legs have 7 degrees of freedom and it can run at an average speed of 7 km/h. In contrast, ASIMO’s maximum speed is 6km/h. The Toyota researchers had to develop new real-time methods for balance control. These methods make it possible for the robot to remain balanced when an external force such as a push from a human is applied when in motion.
The company was founded in 1933 and is headquartered in Toyota City, Japan.
