Toyota is forming a new data science company in partnership with Microsoft that's designed to free customers "from the tyranny of technology".Like other automakers, Toyota Connected will research connecting cars to each other and to homes, as well as telematics features that learn and anticipate a driver's habits. The company, like other automakers, will explore transmitting a driver's health data to a doctor or driving patterns to an insurance company so people are insured based on where they travel, Toyota said. Drivers would have to opt in to all of the data reporting, and Toyota would disclose what data is being shared, the company said.
