Lexus LS 500h is Toyota's latest autonomous research platform
Toyota Research Institute's new self-driving test car is a Lexus LS 500h.
This LS 500h uses TRI's fourth-generation autonomous software, for fully self-driving and driver assistance tech research.
The new LS 500h research car replaces the much older Platform 3.0 car, based off a late-model Lexus LS 600h.
TRI's new autonomous development car will debut at CES 2019.
