every one suffers from these and spend alot of money or dream to fix or clean

did they think to add self wash for the window inside outside like a small part and add perfume with water in one click

or cleaner from small dust on the ground with small wholes with small bag for dust in one click

or give you chance to have hand control with 2 or 4 voice surround and make the voice system for every seat with luxury head set ( more familiar to human not the rules)

I'd like to see how Honda, Nissan and Mitsubishi react to this. Also heavy vehicle makers like Isuzu. As for Toyota's "eco-system" of brands, they will use these vehicle communications devices to promote to the end user to entice them to enter that system for greater benefits. Think: more data available from other cars on the road helping autonomous driving, smoother navigation through congested areas and shorter trip times, etc. Toyota knows that there must be a critical mass of vehicles out there sharing communications devices in order for it to work as planned.

This announcement is quite ambiguous.

There are currently two V2X standards, DSRC in Europe and C-V2X in the US and China.

There is no point in Toyota devising its own standard that will be Japan-only, and Toyota will have to adopt DSRC for Euro-spec vehicles and C-V2X for US/Chinese spec vehicles anyway.

I looked up the Japanese language announcement since the English version is ambiguous, but Japanese version is equally ambiguous as well, but from what I can tell, this is about sharing Toyota's implementation of V2X system with other automakers, everything from sensors to infotainment software to antenna.

Toyota has invested in Suzuki, Mazda and Subaru.

I stop taking this article seriously after mentioning these two.

Oh yes there is, I noted some of the benefits in my post. See, when Toyota and partners disallows corporate espionage and IP theft this way (by way of localised shared R&D), of course South Korean and Chinese interests are quick to discredit it.

It designed to be ambiguous, so South Korean and Chinese interested parties are thrown off, at least until they can develop some decoy throw-away tech that can be stolen without negative consequences.
