Toyota Safety Sense
Toyota has always tried to be on the leading edge of safety technologies in its vehicles. Toyota has developed Toyota Safety Sense, which is a suite of safety
Technologies designed to get you to your destination as safe as possible. There are two packages available for Toyota Safety Sense - C and P:
TSS-C is currently available on:
2017/18 Corolla iM, 2017 Yaris Hatchback, 2017/18 Prius c, 2019 Prius c
The Pre-Collision System is all about preventative protection, as it utilizes a camera and laser to detect vehicles ahead. When the possibility of a collision is detected, this system prompts the driver with audio and visual cues. If the driver notices the given alerts and then proceeds to brake, the system is able to provide additional braking force using Brake Assist. In the case that a driver does not respond to the alerts, and if the system determines there is a possibility of a frontal collision, the system can automatically apply the brakes and reduce speed by up to 30 km/hour to help the reduce the severity of the impact, and in some instances, avoid the collision.
LANE DEPARTURE ALERT
The Lane Departure Alert System utilizes a camera to detect the visible white and yellow lane markings in front of the vehicle as well as the vehicle’s position within these lines. If the system detects the vehicle is making an unintentional departure from its lane, it alerts the driver with an audio and visual cue. When notified of this drift, the driver must check the surrounding road situation and cautiously operate the steering wheel to drive back into the intended part of the lane.
AUTOMATIC HIGH BEAMS
Automatic High Beams enhance visibility at nighttime without distracting other drivers with especially bright lighting. It utilizes an on-board camera to detect the headlights of oncoming traffic and the taillights of the vehicles in front of you. The system can automatically switch between high and low beams to accommodate the circumstances of the moment.
TSS-P is currently available on:
2017-2019 Avalon, 2018/19 C-HR, 2018/19 Camry and Camry Hybrid, 2018/19 Corolla, 2018/19 Highlander & Highlander Hybrid, 2017-2019 Prius & Prius Price, 2018 Prius V, 2017/18 RAV4 & RAV4 Hybrid, 2018/19 Sequoia, 2018/19 Sienna, 2018/19 Tacoma, 2018/19 Tundra
PRE-COLLISION SYSTEM WITH PEDESTRIAN DETECTION
With this advanced version of the Pre-Collision System, millimetre-wave radar sensors and a camera are used to help detect the vehicle ahead, and the system is also able to help detect pedestrians. If the system detects a possible collision with the vehicle ahead or the possibility of a frontal collision with a pedestrian, it then prompts the driver to take immediate action and brake. When the driver responds to these alerts, the system will provide additional braking force using Brake Assist. If the driver does not react to the alerts, the system is able to apply the brakes and reduce speed to lessen the impact and in some cases avoid the collision.
LANE DEPARTURE ALERT WITH STEERING ASSIST FUNCTION
Complementing the Lane Departure Alert in vehicles equipped with TSS-C, vehicles with TSS-P and Electronic Power Steering also feature a Steering Assist function. This system can detect when the vehicle is drifting out of a visibly marked lane and can temporarily provide gentle corrective steering inputs to help guide the vehicle into its lane.
AUTOMATIC HIGH BEAMS
Automatic High Beams are able to provide drivers with enhanced lighting without limiting the visibility of other drivers on the road. It accomplishes this through the use of an in-vehicle camera that can detect the headlights of oncoming vehicles and the taillights of those vehicles ahead. The system detects when other vehicles are within close proximity and will automatically switch between high and low beams to provide adequate lighting.
DYNAMIC RADAR CRUISE CONTROL
Vehicles equipped with TSS-P also come with innovative Dynamic Radar Cruise Control. Comparable to conventional cruise control features, this system can help a vehicle travel at a preset speed and preset vehicle-to-vehicle distance. To detect the preferred speed and distance, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control uses a forward-facing camera with a millimetre-wave radar that monitors the vehicle ahead and offers smooth acceleration and deceleration.
Toyota Safety Sense P comes as standard safety equipment on the following models, including both the 2017 and 2018 model years: Toyota Corolla, Toyota Prius, Toyota Prius Prime, Toyota RAV4 and RAV4 Hybrid, Toyota Highlander, and Highlander Hybrid.
