Toyota Pre-Collision System

toyota collision

The Toyota Safety Sense™ package has received top praise from Alpharetta drivers, as well as industry experts, and it’s not difficult to see why. This safety suite has a feature that tracks movement in your surroundings, and many can even intervene to prevent a collision. The best-known feature is the Toyota Pre-Collision System that works using a front-facing camera and laser to detect objects in your path and alert you when it’s time to brake. If needed, it can automatically bring your vehicle to a complete stop.

How Does the Toyota Pre-Collision System Work?

After learning about the Pre-Collision System, you may be wondering how this is going to function with your daily commute to the Buford area?

Like we mentioned above, new Toyota vehicles with the Pre-Collision System include a front-facing camera and an invisible laser. It works with these components to measure the distance between your vehicle and the obstacle in your way. It takes your speed into account and determines if a collision is about to happen.

If a collision is likely to happen, your Toyota vehicle will send out an audiovisual alert notifying you of the danger ahead. When this happens, it’s important that you manually apply the brake as soon as you can. If not, the Toyota Pre-Collision System may automatically apply the brakes or deploy them at full force using the brake assist.

It’s essential to note that there is no substitute for careful driving. This system gives you added peace of mind while protecting you and your passengers against inevitable accidents that can happen.

Toyota Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection

There are different versions of the Pre-Collision System. With Toyota Safety Sense™ P (TSS P) or Toyota Safety Sense™ 2.0 (TSS 2.0) – the most common versions of the package – the Toyota Pre-Collision System also includes Pedestrian Detection. Vehicles that come equipped with Pedestrian Detection also include the grille-mounted system that uses millimeter-wave radar to inspect your surroundings for smaller objects that the PCS may miss. It examines the shape, size, and motion to identify any vulnerable people and apply the brakes as necessary.
