Toyota is moving forward with self-driving technology.  They’re introducing their Next-Generation Automated Driving Research Vehicle… a Lexus LS 600hL.  Toyota says the technology improves, with a LIDAR system with a 200-meter range that can see 360-degrees around the vehicle. They’ve also made the system more compact and have concealed it into the vehicle’s design.  Toyota will unveil the new system at CES in Las Vegas this week.

Chinese automaker Byton has unveiled their electric crossover concept to the crowd at CES.  As we told you last week, the company says it will include a 49-inch by 10-inch screen and have a range of up to 310 miles.  They hope to begin production in 2019.  It could be in the U.S. the following year.
