During the last week in CES 2015, Toyota announced that they want other car manufacturers to keep making research in hydrogen fuel cells. In order to ease this situation, Toyota is going to share its patents about this topic.
According to Dr. Michio Kaku, we are facing hydrogen society in the next five years. However, the industry is not still enough developed and the solutions needed are not available. Because of that, Toyota has decided to open more than 5,500 patents about hydrogen fuel cells and share all them with other manufacturers to make a strong group capable of developing this technology further.
