It also displayed the NeuV (pronounced ‘new-v’), which stands for New Electric Urban Vehicle, is a concept vehicle whose genesis is based on the fact that privately-owned vehicles sit idle 96 percent of the time.

The new initiative will assume responsibility for ‘new value’ areas that include robotics technology, mobility system and energy management as also in areas related to existing fields of technologies such as automated driving and connectivity technologies.

In line with its strategy to evolve mobility systems, the Japanese automaker now wants to employ digital technologies such as artificial intelligence and big data. Initially, R&D Centre X will focus on research of autonomously operated machines and systems, such as robotics technologies and mobility systems, which will be collectively called robotics.
