You see, for automakers such as Toyota to rank top of the world as they have, ambitions had to be curved, dreams had to come real and so much thought given into futuristic achievements. With such innate confidence, nothing seems impossible for executives of such entities.

It is no wonder then that Toyota has announced one of the most ambitious undertakings ever by an automaker. If it happens (and all signs of it coming true are rife) it could become the hallmark of technological achievement in its own right.

The automaker has announced plans to build a futuristic city that will become gathering point and a melting pot of top-notch engineers, researchers and scientists. Toyota is particularly interested in a space where projects such as autonomous cars, robots, IoT and alternative fuels could be tested.

Dubbed “Woven City,” it shall sit at the foot of Mountain Fuji in Japan, on 175 acres of land. In the words of Toyota Motor Corp President, Akio Toyoda, the Woven City will be built completely “from the ground up.”

Toyota sees this as the perfect opportunity to “to develop future technologies, including a digital operating system for the city’s infrastructure. With people, buildings and vehicles all connected and communicating with each other through data and sensors.”

The plan so far looks ready to get a kick start. The city is designed by Danish architecture firm Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG), the folks who gave us 2 World Trade Center in New York, and Google’s headquarters in California and London.
