Toyota Safety Sense

Toyota Safety Sense

It is an advanced safety technology system that has revolutionized the automotive industry. With its cutting-edge features and state-of-the-art sensors, Toyota Safety Sense ensures a secure and protected driving experience. This comprehensive suite of safety features includes pre-collision systems, lane departure alerts, automatic high beams, and dynamic radar cruise control. The pre-collision system helps detect potential collisions and can even apply braking assistance to mitigate the impact. Lane departure alert uses advanced cameras to monitor lane markings and alerts the driver.

The automatic high beams enhance visibility during nighttime driving by automatically switching between high and low beams, depending on traffic conditions. Dynamic radar cruise control allows drivers to maintain a safe distance from the vehicle ahead by automatically adjusting the speed. Toyota Safety Sense is designed to provide peace of mind to both drivers and passengers, offering an added layer of protection on the road. Whether you’re commuting or embarking on a long journey, this advanced safety technology ensures that you and your loved ones are always safeguarded. Trust Toyota Safety Sense to make your driving experience safer and more secure than ever before.

Evolution in Toyota Safety Systems

Since the inception of vehicles, manufacturers are trying their best to create safety features in automobiles and make them more reliable and safer. Toyota has always been serious about providing the most reliable cars to its customers across the globe. Toyota has always pushed its design and engineering wings to create easier, safer, and smarter technology for its customers. The first airbag system or SRS system was mass-produced and rolled out in 1992 by Toyota and since then they are working actively to create smart Toyota safety features.

What is ANCAP ?

The Australasian New Car Assessment Program or ANCAP does the most rigorous testing on cars. The testing is so strict that many manufacturers use their services before rollout of a production model. Toyota has always achieved an amazing rating by ANCAP. Some of the common and new Toyota Safety features are explained below

Pre-Collision Toyota Safety System

Helping passengers in reducing the risk of a frontal collision. This system uses your vehicle’s built-in camera or radar, the Pre-Collision Safety (PCS) system has designed to give alerts if it detects a frontal collision. Some PCS have Pedestrian Detection (which, depending on your vehicle, may be effective during the day and/or at night)

The pre-collision system works in 3 stages

1. Alerts
2. Assess
3. Support

Some selected Toyota vehicles will have the capacity to detect pedestrians and cyclists. This system works only in the daylight. It helps a lot in avoiding collisions when turning across intersections.

Road Sign Assist

One of the newest safety features is the Road Sign Assist or RSA. It is a smart feature designed to identify certain Australian speed limit signs. If there is a significant difference between the prescribed speed and the car’s speed it will create an alert. In some countries, it also limits the driving speed.

This system uses a front-mounted camera programmed to detect and relay certain speed limit information to you via the Multi-Information Display behind your steering wheel. When used with Active Cruise Control (ACC), RSA helps you alter your constant speed setting with a single click immediately after a change in speed limit has been detected.

Lane Departure Alert (LDA) and Lane Trace Assist (LTA)

Toyota has recently unveiled two new driver assistance technologies, Lane Departure Alert (LDA) and Lane Trace Assist (LTA). Both of these technologies serve to enhance road safety by providing additional protection for drivers. The LDA system is able to detect lane markings while the LTA system can recognize the vehicle’s position compared to other objects on the roadway. Both systems respond with corrective action to ensure that drivers remain in their lanes, avoiding unnecessary risks. Toyota continues to demonstrate its commitment to road safety with features such as the LDA and LTA, enabling drivers to reach their destinations safely.

Toyota Safety Sense’s Lane Departure Alert uses a camera to identify lane markings on the road ahead and alerts the driver with aural and visual warnings if the vehicle begins to wander from its lane without the turn indicator applied – the driver may then take remedial action.

Lane Trace Assist (LTA) is a feature that works in conjunction with Active Cruise Control (ACC) to monitor road markings and make modifications to assist you to keep your place by providing extra steering support and sounding an audio alarm.

Automatic High Beam and How it works

High-beam headlights illuminate the road ahead of you, but they can be a dangerous distraction for other drivers. Toyota solved this age-old problem with cutting-edge technology that eliminates the need to manually control your headlights. Automatic High Beam employs a built-in camera to detect incoming traffic headlights and the tail lights of cars in front while traveling above 50km/h at night.

Active Cruise Control

Active Cruise Control uses your Toyota’s built-in camera and front-grille-mounted radar to maintain a pre-set speed while automatically accelerating and decelerating with the traffic in front of you. All-Speed ACC is available on several Toyota vehicles, allowing you to slow down to 0km/h. Other versions just include High-Speed ACC, which is only meant to work at speeds over 50 km/h.
