Not alone. Not enough.
This is good but not enough. Toyota can't create the future of cars by itself. If NISSAN, GM, Ford, Honda can join the initiative this will be much more fruitful.

Future
I believe the vision of Toyota is not limited to driver-less car or just industry robotics. The company must be doing some advanced research to try to have some breakthrough. In the future it's highly likely that robots will become an essential part of daily life.
