Toyota announced its project “Woven City” at CES, the largest technology trade show in the world, back in 2020. The mission of Woven City is “Building the Future Fabric of Life in a City as a Test Course for Mobility.” where people actually live, test and invent new services and systems together with residents in a wide range of mobility areas. The “ Test Course” is equipped with the latest connectivity features that will enhance the lives of the next generation. With the opening planned between 2024–2025, construction is currently underway in Susono City in Shizuoka Prefecture, located at the foot of Mount Fuji.
Woven Planet Holdings (Woven Planet), a subsidiary of Toyota, will play a central role in the development of the city. On April 22, 2022, the company held a tech meetup, “Woven City Tech Meetup — Cloud.”
