With this revolutionary technology, a special school, Arcadia Academy, is established in New Yokohama City in 2012 to teach children to drive these A.I. cars. One day, Kakeru Todoroki, a student of Arcadia Academy, is summoned by the school principal and given an A.I. car called Raibird, which turns out to be a transforming robot known as Gyrozetter. Together with other chosen drivers, he must use the Gyrozetter to stop an evil organization, Xenon, from world domination.
