Raising awareness of safe driving among Ha:mo Ride users TOKYO, Jul 18, 2019 – (JCN Newswire) – Toyota Motor Corporation will conduct verification tests in Toyota City using driving data obtained from “Ha:mo Ride”(1), a car-sharing service that utilizes “COMS” ultra-compact BEVs (battery electric vehicles), from September 9 to October 13. The tests will be carried out by four members of the Toyota City Connected Society Verification Promotion Council: Toyota, Aioi Nissay Dowa Insurance Co., Ltd. (Aioi Nissay Dowa), UPR Corporation (UPR), and Toyota City–which is an SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) Future City. Using driving data from Toyota City’s municipal Ha:mo Ride service, the tests aim to verify the capability of raising awareness of safe driving among users, and of providing peace of mind in the event of collisions. Specifically, driving data will be used to evaluate the safe driving performance of Ha:mo Ride members who have agreed to participate in the tests. Members will be assigned one of five grades, and those who drive safely will be gifted Ha:mo points; these points can be used for partial payment of members’ next usage fees, or converted to Toyota Ecopoints(2) or PeX Points(3). By establishing a system that rewards safe driving, the verification tests seek to raise awareness of safe driving among users. When Ha:mo Ride members or tourists who make short-term use of Ha:mo Ride are driving, and the vehicles detect a significant impact–one large enough to make continued driving problematic–a report is automatically sent to the Automated Report Desk. The operating company will then make a Ha:mo Peace-of-Mind Telephone Call to the user’s registered telephone number. In this way, the verification tests seek to provide peace of mind in the event of an accident. Going forward, through the resolution of regional problems, the Toyota City Connected Society Verification Promotion Council aims to establish systems that make mobility safe, secure, and comfortable for everyone. (1) A car-sharing system that utilizes ultra-compact BEVs suitable for short-distance round trip or one-way usage. (2) Toyota Ecopoints are issued by Toyota City in a variety of fields to people who act in an environmentally friendly manner. Points can be exchanged for a wide range of products, such as municipal trash bags and toilet paper. (3) PeX Points are issued by the PeX point exchange service, and can be exchanged for a variety of products, including services, cash, e-money, and air miles.

Square Enix’s critically acclaimed Dragon Quest XI is heading to Nintendo Switch sometime this year. As the “definitive” version of the game, the port is mostly the same as its PS4 and PC counterparts but includes some bonus extras, such as the option Japanese voice audio, an orchestrated version of the soundtrack, and the ability to switch to a 16-bit interface modeled after the visuals from the SNES era of Dragon Quest. Though, fans should recognize that last feature from the 3DS port of the game that never made it to the West. If you’ve yet to play DQXI, the upcoming Switch port might be the best way to experience it.
