Toyota Safety Sense Technology: How it Keeps Drivers and Passengers Safer on the Road

If you're a Toyota fan, you likely bought your car, truck or SUV in part at least, because of the safety that the brand is known for. The Toyota Safety Sense Technology provides drivers and passengers with cutting-edge technology to stay safer while on the road … or even simply backing out of a narrow parking area. Let's look at some of the ways that Toyota Safety Sense works.


Toyota Safety Sense Technology: What Does it Include?

The three main components of the Toyota Safety Sense package include: a Pre-Collison System, Lane Departure Alert and Automatic High Beams.

Pre-Collison System

The Pre-Collision System (PCS) notifies the driver that a frontal collision is likely by using both audio and visual prompts. If you immediately notice the danger and apply the brakes, the system can increase your braking force. On the other hand, if you don't brake in a set amount of time, the system will automatically apply the brakes for you. Drivers liken this to having a built in co-pilot. Who couldn't use one of those on occasion?

Lane Departure Alert

The Lane Departure Alert (LDA) works to keep your vehicle in your lane, without drifting or edging into another vehicle's space. The system alerts the driver with both an audio and visual alert. The system is also equipped with Electronic Power Steering (EPS) which offers Steering Assist function. This system can also provide small corrective steering actions, to keep your vehicle in the proper lane.

Automatic High Beams

Want to see further at nighttime? This feature will help you do just that. An in-vehicle camera helps to detect the headlights of oncoming vehicles or the taillights of preceding vehicles and automatically switch to low beams-no more accidentally blinding another driver.
