New Automotive Technology | Toyota is studying hitchless drawing – 98.5 Montreal


Some of the technologies offered by cars today are absolutely amazing. And because things change at an incredible speed, each new generation of models introduces us to sometimes strange features.

So much so that one wonders what will be the next innovation. We often speculate about this, especially about autonomous driving, for example. It is easy to imagine the journey between home and work without having to lift a finger.

We can even imagine the day when flying taxis will fly through the sky. However, what follows may surprise you a little. In fact, it is that Toyota is studying the technology of towing without hitchless.

Yes, you read that right; one car pulls another without the second being connected. In the video showing the work, we can see two Sienna passenger cars showing us. The first is the one that dictates the pace until the second, which has sensor artillery, is content to follow it obediently.

It’s interesting.

Reality? Maybe not for now, but who knows for the future. One can easily imagine a square trailer, a box, whatever, equipped to follow our car and do it only when asked.

We can also wonder about the dangers of theft and piracy. Would that be as dangerous or less dangerous than the current trailers?

You can be sure they are, when he attends his next Toyota event, he will hear from the engineers about this technology being tested.

You can’t stop progress, as the saying goes.
