Toyota Research Institute partners with U-M on artificial intelligence

Research focused on artificial intelligence, robotics and autonomous driving at U-M will get a major boost thanks to an initial $22-million commitment from the Toyota Research Institute.

Under the agreement, TRI will provide an initial $22 million over four years for research collaborations with U-M faculty in the areas of enhanced driving safety, partner robotics and indoor mobility, autonomous driving and student learning and diversity.

“Toyota has long enjoyed an excellent working relationship with the University of Michigan, and we are excited to expand our collective efforts to address complex mobility challenges through artificial intelligence,” says TRI CEO Gill Pratt. “We look forward to collaborating with U-M’s research faculty and students to develop new intelligent technologies that will help drivers travel more safely, securely and efficiently.”
