s new i-ROAD personal mobility (PMV) makes its world at the Geneva motor show, a flexible form of transport for city streets.

Seating two in and under cover, i-ROAD is an vehicle with a range of up to 30 (50km) on a single charge. Active Lean technology, it is intuitive and enjoyable to drive, no need for driver or passenger to a helmet.

Toyota s new and entirely intuitive Lean technology is the key to i-ROAD s levels of stability, safety, and fun-to-drive character. The system a lean actuator and gearing above the front suspension linked via a yoke to the left and front wheels. An ECU calculates the degree of lean based on angle, gyro-sensor and vehicle information, with the system moving the wheels up and down in directions, applying lean to counteract the centrifugal force of

The system also operates the PMV is being driven in a straight over stepped surfaces, the automatically compensating for changes in the to keep the body level. The turning circle is just meters.

No special skills are to pilot i-ROAD; the Active system offers a unique experience with the enjoyment of a two-wheeler, but with no need for the to stabilize the vehicle when at low speed, or when stationary.

As the doesn t have to put his or her feet on the surface at any time, i-ROAD can be with a safer, weatherproof, body and so can be driven without a helmet. This design allows for a more car-like on board, with the potential for such as lighting, heating, and Bluetooth to be provided.
