University – University /
At Toyota Research Institute (TRI), we’re working to build a future where everyone has the freedom to move, engage, and explore with a focus on reducing vehicle collisions, injuries, and fatalities. Join us in our mission to improve the quality of human life through advances in artificial intelligence, automated driving, robotics, and materials science. We’re dedicated to building a world of “mobility for all” where everyone, regardless of age or ability, can live in harmony with technology to enjoy a better life. Through innovation, TRI will help…

- Innovate solutions that will enable development of vehicles incapable of causing a crash, regardless of the actions of the driver.
- Develop technology for vehicles and robots to help people enjoy new levels of independence, access, and mobility.
- Bring advanced mobility technology to market faster.
-Discover new materials that will make batteries and hydrogen fuel cells smaller, lighter, less expensive and more powerful.
- Develop human-centered AI systems to augment (not replace) human decision making to increase the quality of decisions (e.g. mitigate cognitive biases) and/or to facilitate faster innovation cycles.

If this sounds exciting to you, join our 12 week Summer 2021 Internship Program. Our program allows you to work on real projects around crafting safer cars, enabling the elderly to age in place with the help of robots, crafting alternative fuel sources, and developing new science to better understand human cognition. Interns will benefit from an encouraging, collaborative environment and gain insights from a dedicated mentor who will help ensure a productive and meaningful experience!
