Toyota Robotaxi Intelligent Agents Solve Soccer Rendezvous

In the reduced-car-ownership 2025 subscription economy, intelligent agents access mom & dad's e-mail, calendar and GPS coords to optimize the "kids' soccer team rendezvous challenge," complete with a spoken-language-comprehending agent remedying a socially awkward business client interaction. Little Johnnie and Sally enjoy a robotically chauffeured trip to the soccer fields where they rendezvous with dad.
