Safety For The Road Ahead – Toyota Safety Sense
The Toyota Safety Sense package is available now at Rivertown Toyota on a selection of new Toyota models.
The active safety package includes:
- Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection
- Lane Departure Alert
- Auto High Beams
- Dynamic Radar Cruise Control
These features were designed to work together to support your awareness and decision-making on the road and help address three key areas of accident protection:
- Preventing or mitigating frontal collisions.
- Keeping drivers within their lane.
- Enhancing road safety during nighttime driving.
The Pre-Collision System (PCS)
This intuitive system uses a forward-facing radar and camera that scans the road ahead, helping you avoid a potential collision in certain situations.
When a potential collision is detected, you are alerted with audible and visual warnings, and brake assistance is automatically activated.
If you are unable to apply the brakes, and the system determines the collision is unavoidable and the brakes are automatically engaged.
Lane Departure Alert (LDA)
Lane Departure Alert is designed to help you stay in your lane and help keep you safe from harm. Using a specialized camera, the system can detect the painted lane markings on the road and will alert you if you start to drift out of your lane.
An audible beeping sound and indicator light on the instrument panel will flash so that you can then take corrective action.
Auto High Beams (AHB)
Auto High Beams allow for better visibility, making nighttime driving safer for everyone. The system uses a camera to detect oncoming vehicles’ headlights and automatically switches between high and low beams.
Pedestrian Detection (PD)
Pedestrian Detection helps detect pedestrians under certain conditions. It works by using a millimeter-wave radar and a camera with shape recognition.
The Pedestrian Detection system will alert you with an audible warning and display notification if it senses a possible pedestrian collision. If you don’t react, automatic braking and collision-avoidance support is then given to help prevent a collision from happening.
Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC)
Dynamic Radar Cruise Control works like conventional cruise control, but can do even more.
Using forward-sensing radar technology and a camera, the system can detect the speed and distance of the vehicle ahead of yours in certain situations and adjust your speed accordingly.
In traffic, it can help maintain a preset following distance and then it can accelerate back to your original cruising speed once the road clears.
