About TMNA R&D

While some define a mobility strategy through CASE – connected, automated, shared and electric – TMNA R&D approaches technology research and development with humans at the center, thereby adding an  “H,” to form CHASE, which reinforces this importance. TMNA R&D is striving to improve the human experience by innovating future Toyota products and technology for production.

TMNA R&D covers a broad time horizon from developing near-term products to identifying and researching future societal needs and challenges. TMNA R&D is designed to produce solutions and technologies that contribute to creating a sustainable society where people can enjoy a fulfilling life.

Key divisions supporting these efforts include InfoTech Labs, Toyota Research Institute of North America (TRINA), Collaborative Safety Research Center (CSRC) and Integrated Vehicle Systems (IVS). TMNA R&D is also overseeing Toyota’s development of innovative Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) applications and concepts for zero-emission vehicles (ZEV).
