The doors pivot vertically when the vehicle's AI senses that the driver is approaching. The exterior surfaces of Concept-i can display messages and visual cues.

Inside, Concept-i uses almost no traditional displays, instead communicating with colors and the AI agent -- known as Yui -- which predicts the passengers' needs.

Toyota envisions a future where drivers build a relationship with Concept-i and its Yui artificial intelligence, totally changing the way we interact with cars.
