With the vibrant Tokyo as their stage, a series of i-ROAD Test Drive Pilots have made a rich array of motoring discoveries.
With nearly a year having passed since the start of this program in July of last year, the Phase 8 crop of Pilot members has now taken to the road.

In late May, a training session was held for the Phase 8 participants. The selected drivers gathered under clear early summer skies, basking in temperatures where they were likely to work up slight sweats. They seemed to be all brimming with curiosity and interest in the i-ROAD, even before the scheduled training run got underway. After listening to the explanations of how to operate the vehicle, the onboard applications and other details, they moved on to the test drive training stage. While the Pilots appeared a bit tense at first, their faces steadily lit up with expressions of relief and joy as they negotiated the oval-shaped driving course on the grounds, tried their hands at parallel parking and otherwise put the trusty i-ROAD units through their paces.

With the conclusion of the training session, the Phase 8 Test Drive Pilots were truly set to begin their daily lifestyle routines hand in hand with the i-ROAD. The test drive period is about one month. Be sure to follow this website for regular reports on newly introduced applications and other updates on the Pilots and this unique project itself.
