The Toyota Research Institute (TRI) is an R&D enterprise designed to bridge the gap between fundamental research and product development. It has been launched with mandates to (1) enhance the safety of automobiles, with the ultimate goal of creating a car that is incapable of causing a crash; (2) increase access to cars to those who otherwise cannot drive, including those with disabilities and the elderly; (3) help translate outdoor mobility technology into products for indoor mobility; and (4) accelerate scientific discovery by applying techniques from artificial intelligence and machine learning. Toyota believes artificial intelligence has significant potential to improve the quality of life for all people, bringing ease, comfort and safety to all aspects of life.

TRI's Driving Simulation team is developing software tools, algorithms and systems to model sensors, and simulate 3D environments and agent behaviors. We apply them to accelerate the development and testing of fully autonomous vehicles and advanced safety systems. These projects develop and apply cutting edge techniques from the fields of computer graphics, artificial intelligence, computer vision and robotics. We are looking for great software engineers who are passionate about deploying systems to improve the lives of millions.
