Toyota Pre-Collision System
Toyota Safety Sense™ offers a safety package that’s the talk of drivers and Austin. That’s because this advanced system works hard to keep you safer on every Leander drive. Toyota Safety Sense™ includes the incredible Toyota Pre-Collision System. But how does the Toyota Pre-Collision System work?
By using a front-facing camera and a laser, this pre-collision system offers an alert when you need to hit the brakes due to objects in your path. When needed, the Toyota Pre-Collision System can even bring your vehicle to a complete stop. Learn more below about how the Toyota Safety Sense™ suite featuring the Toyota Pre-Collision System can keep your Georgetown family safe out on the road in your new Toyota!
How Does the Toyota Pre-Collision System Work?
So, how does the Toyota Pre-Collision System work to help you avoid accidents? Let’s take a closer look at the inner workings of this pre-collision system here:
- As described above, the Toyota Pre-Collision System relies on a front-facing camera and radar system.
- The system uses multiple components to measure the distance between your vehicle and the upcoming object in your path.
- The system factors in your speed and determines the likelihood of a collision.
- If the system detects that a collision is likely to occur, your vehicle will give you an audiovisual cue that you need to apply the brakes as soon as possible.
- If you’re unable to brake, the pre-collision system may apply the brakes or deploy them at full force to prevent a collision.
Toyota Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection
Depending on the model you take home, the Toyota Pre-Collision System is available in multiple configurations. A common version of the package, Toyota Safety Sense™ 2.0 (TSS 2.0), includes Pedestrian Detection. The latest versions, TSS 2.5 and TSS 2.5+ also incorporate intersection support and emergency steering functionality to help prevent collisions with motorists, cyclists, and pedestrians as well.
Inside your Toyota vehicle with Pedestrian Detection, the system utilizes millimeter-wave radar to scan your surroundings while making turns and proceeding forward with your route. The system can detect oncoming vehicles or pedestrians while you make a left-hand turn. What’s more, the system can detect pedestrians when you’re turning right. The system may deploy audio and visual signals and even braking power when needed to alert the driver and prevent collisions.
