Toyota AI car aims for oneness with driver

Prototype that studies driver's state of mind to go on display at Tokyo Motor Show

NAGOYA, Japan -- Toyota Motor will later this month unveil a concept car equipped with artificial intelligence that can come to understand drivers' preferences and even their feelings, the Japanese automaker said Monday.

Toyota says the AI system will be able to assess the driver's state of mind to provide help as needed -- by switching to self-driving mode in the interest of safety, for example.
