Toyota Doubles-Down on Zero Emissions Heavy-duty Trucks | Corporate
Reusing Mirai fuel cell parts on an electric big rig glider chassis is sorta smart, but Toyota would probably do better pairing up with Nikola Motors...

Toyota Opens the Door and Invites the Industry to the Hydrogen Future | Corporate
Toyota is effectively making their fuel cell and related hydrogen gas patents effectively royalty free. Sorta like Tesla and their EV patents, but Toyota is capping it until 2020, which seems like a cheap shot..

Image Sensor for Free-Space Optical Communication and Imaging
Interesting hybrid sensor, with dedicated pixels for imaging purposes and optical communication receiving. Separate LED transmitters complete the optical communication loop, though I suppose the next step is embedding the LED laser in the sensor as well, much like those LCD displays with embedded imaging sensors.

Toyota to Develop Home Energy Management System with Storage Battery -- Tech-On!
Toyota getting in to the home energy management game. Naturally their end goal is the ability to do overnight and quick charging of PHEV and EV type vehicles, but this could be a tidy little business in it's own right if they work with construction suppliers and power companies to link into smart grids. Naturally local generation (solar, wind, natural gas fuelcell) and local storage have big parts to play in a smart grid, so making a good agnostic controller/management system is a must.
