Toyota Smart Insect ConceptWe could get acquainted in Japan with the new wonder of the car factory leader in the field of alternative drives, which knows undoubtedly a lot – about us.

Hearing the words cloud and insect these surely remind a lot of us straightaway of the weather, or at least of the nature, the fresh air. In the latter case we wouldn't be mistaken so much, though what now follows, that hasn't got much to do with the arthropodas or the rain. The name „Smart INSECT" of the one - man, city electric small car newly presented by Toyota is actually a mosaic word. We don't need to translate each of the English words „Information Network Social Electric City Transporter", their meaning is so evident. By all means, the car has undisputedly bug-like looks, even it's doors open like wings. It's still more worth having a look at the „smart" solutions.

We could say that if a vehicle is one - man designed and has four wheels, that's almost a wasting. In case of the officially 5 – 7 person sedans, battle ships consumpting 7 – 10 liters of fossil fuel it's even so (as it would be somehow embarassing, being beneath the position for 2 – 3 persons to travel in the same SUV). But here's this electric car of which matter is exactly that it's been designed for one man, but for it really much. It's been so much that the database in the information centre of the Toyota stores a lot of information (this is the basis of the technical term of cloud used in an informational sense), the car so to say memorizes and recognizes it's owner, it's face, voice, even it's moves too. Yes, it's enough to do the usual movement towards the door handle, and the system receives the sign that we want to open the door.

The cloud based datacommunication system assigns even a virtual mate to us, who helps us with pleasure, if we get stucked. It knows, where our office is, where we live, and if we reveal it our musical taste, it memorizes even that. The icing on the cake is that as the owner approaches it's vehicle parking in the car park, the smart four-wheeler greets the daddy with flashing, and it may also horn for joy. Fortunately the little pet doesn't jump in the lap, but the driver may not mind this. On the way home thanks to the kind cloud the system turns on the air conditioning – obviously in case of summer heat – that a nice cool will welcome us as we step into the home. So, finally we reached the weather!

Beside the gourmet solutions we have less information about that what is the „cattle" in field of driving dynamics capable for. Both the 60 km/h end speed and the 50 km range detains the little car to stay inside the city, but it's place is just there.

It's the question of taste and temperament that who rejoices at such a vehicle which knows a lot about us, and sometimes with a fair chance it wants to be a little bit more clever than we are. Moreover we are alone in it, or at least we should love our travel mate a lot – supposing that the system allows us the romance. Should it do?
