Toyota, the PI System, and Dreams of a Green New World
Imagine a world in which you could drive a car, knowing it will have zero CO2 impact throughout its entire lifecycle. The plant producing the car utilizes the least amount of energy possible, and the energy it does use comes from renewable sources. The car likewise runs on renewable energy until the end of its life, when it will be recycled, leaving the world with a zero-carbon footprint. This is the kind of world Toyota has been imagining. Recently, Toyota Motor Europe began relying on real-time operational data to enable energy management as part of a project called Toyota Environmental Challenge 2050. Toyota is using OSIsoft’s PI System to gather and process the data it needs to understand its energy usage so it can lead the automotive industry’s transition toward an environmentally sustainable future.
