Toyota Brings 'Highway to the Future: Mobile Hybrid Experience' to the Wisconsin State Fair

Toyota's Mobile Experience Offers Look Inside Hybrid Synergy Drive

WEST ALLIS, Wis., July 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Toyota is bringing its nationwide tour called "Highway to the Future: Mobile Hybrid Experience," to the Wisconsin State Fair in West Allis, Wisconsin on August 2-12, 2007. The tour is designed to provide consumers with a firsthand opportunity to experience automotive hybrid technology.

The tour which will run 18 months debuted Jan. 11, 2007 at the San Jose International Auto Show and is traveling to more than 150 events throughout the country. Consumers will have an opportunity to test Toyota's Hybrid Synergy Drive system and learn about hybrid technology through a number of interactive educational exhibits.

"Most people have heard of hybrid technology and probably have a vague idea of how it works, but few have actually driven a hybrid and or taken an up-close look at its operation," said Celeste Migliore, Toyota's National Manager, Advanced Technology Vehicles. "This tour allows consumers to learn more about the technology behind this system and the benefits of hybrid vehicles."

Highway to the Future: Mobile Hybrid Experience serves as a mobile museum to the environment and alternative fuels. The exhibit will be located in "The Big Backyard" area at the Wisconsin State Fair Park, adjacent to the Alliant Energy Family Variety Stage daily from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. (with the exception of Sunday, August 12 when the exhibit will close at 9:00 p.m.).

There are four distinct interactive learning areas within the exhibit.

-- "Alternative Fuels: Fueling the Future," identifies the differences in the various types of alternative fuels and how they are produced.

-- "Environment and Resources: Small Steps, Big Difference," shows attendees what they can do to make a difference to the environment.

-- "The Prius Driving Experience" simulates the current Hybrid Synergy Drive technology allowing visitors to interact with system while on-screen instructions offer driving tips.

-- "Hybrid Technology: Not All Hybrids are Created Equal" exhibit gives visitors a better understanding of the various hybrid technology options on the market and how hybrids benefit the consumer and the environment.

The hybrid experience offers more than just interesting educational activities; it also is designed to minimize its own environmental impact. Toyota will plant more than 50,000 trees in honor of those visiting the experience in conjunction with the National Arbor Day Foundation. These trees will help offset the "carbon footprint" of the trucks transporting the tour across the country and will continue to have a positive impact on the environment for years to come.

Toyota's Highway to the Future: Mobile Hybrid Experience will travel to more than 150 events across the 48 contiguous United States during the next 18 months. For more information or the schedule of events please visit http://www.toyota.com/highway.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...
Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world.

Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
