How Does Toyota Pre-Collision System Work?

toyota collision

Toyota has long been a trendsetter in automotive safety technology, and the Toyota Pre-Collision System is a prime example of the brand’s high-tech innovation. This smart system tracks the movements of surrounding traffic using both a front-facing camera and laser mechanisms, so you can stay alert to the conditions of the Jacksonville roads at all times. 

If an unavoidable collision is imminent, your new Toyota will kick into gear to protect you from harm. The Toyota Pre-Collision system is not a substitute for attentive driving, but it can help keep you safer on the road when the unexpected occurs. Take a closer look at the Toyota Safety Sense features below with Beaver Toyota St. Augustine:

Toyota Pre-Collision System in Action

So, how does Toyota Pre-Collision System work on the Palm Coast roads?

  • The front-facing camera and laser keep track of the distance between your vehicle and all other vehicles that surround you. 
  • The system makes rapid calculations, tracking your distance and speed to make sure that you remain a safe distance from others.
  • If you get too close to another vehicle, your system will begin alerting you with audible and visual signals. This tells you to slow down and pay close attention to traffic.
  • If you fail to follow the warning signals, your car will automatically deploy your brakes at full force with brake assist to keep you safe.

Additionally, Toyota Safety Sense™ P (TSS P) and Toyota Safety Sense™ 2.0 (TSS 2.0) offer Toyota Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection. These systems can sense pedestrians in your path using an additional grille-mounted system with millimeter-wave radar.
