In autonomous driver mode the seats are capable of reclining and massage your back, in order to calm your breathing and make you relax. This technology was revealed in the Consumer Electronics show hosted in Las Vegas last January. Interesting enough Toyota imagines Yui with access to your social media with shared access and permission.
