Toyota is building a new city on the site of a former manufacturing facility near the foot of Mount Fuji. Called the “Woven City”, it will be a living experiment on how to better move people and things from one place to another. According to the company, it's a “key initiative for Toyota to transform itself into a mobility company.”

Research will include potential advancements in personal mobility, automated driving, robotics and artificial intelligence. There will be three separate types of streets used for different purposes: one for autonomous driving, one for personal mobility vehicles, and one reserved for pedestrians. Goods will move across the city via underground roadways. 

Of course, sustainability will also be a key element in building the city, with homes and buildings made of sustainable materials and green spaces integrated into the 175-acre footprint.
