Gill Pratt of Toyota unveiled the Toyota Research Institute (TRI) new Guardian technology at CES 2019. This life saving AI technology can make decisions on the fly to avoid accidents. It amplifies human ability by assisting the elderly and young to drive more safely. For example if it detects that an accident is likely to occur to the right of it on a 3 lane highway, the "Altruistic Guardian" machine learning algorithm will make a decision to speed up and create more space for the encroaching car to get in. If a car pulls out from a line of parked cars to the right of the Toyota, it will check for vehicles in the lane to the left of it. If it detects that the left lane is open, it will automatically swerve out of the way by using the empty left lane to avoid an accident. If a person is driving through a tight area such as cones on a test track, the Toyota Guardian system will assist the turning of the steering wheel to avoid all cones. By collaborating with the driver to keep the car within safe operating conditions, the AI becomes an extension of the driver. TRI is developing two different automated driving modes in parallel -- Guardian and Chauffeur -- which gives drivers a choice. Guardian mode uses technology to constantly monitor the human's driving task, intervening only when necessary to protect the vehicle from a potential crash. In Chauffeur mode, the technology takes all responsibility for driving and vehicle occupants are strictly passengers. The underlying technology for both modes is the same, and it further forges the collaboration between human and machine.
