They have also laid the groundwork for new services, including development of apps for in-car operation and status checking of home appliances. For example, an app linked with vehicle GPS data will remind the user to turn off the air conditioner before leaving and also enable the user to turn it on remotely from the vehicle before arriving home.
Toyota said it will leverage its cloud-based Toyota Smart Center, which links people, cars, and homes.
In the future, the two companies will continue to leverage their strengths and work toward smarter mobility where people, cars, homes and communities are linked through cloud-based services.
The new service currently being developed will be displayed at the Toyota booth at Smart Community Japan 2014, which will be held at Tokyo Big Sight in the capital's Koto Ward from June 18 to 20.
