Toyota has started building a “smart city” which will include self-driving cars, robotics and AI homes.
Construction began this week at the base of Japan’s Mount Fuji, and has been dubbed the “Woven City.”
The 175-acre city, around 62 miles from Tokyo, is set to function as a technological testing ground, with 360 residents to test and develop the tech.
This includes inventors, senior citizens, families and children, who will test technologies like robotics, artificial intelligence and smart homes.
Eventually, the city will be home to around 2,000 Toyota employees, reports Business Insider.
Other aspects of the Woven City include hydrogen fuel cells and it is reported the city will be fully sustainable.
