How Does Toyota Safety Sense Work?

As we mentioned earlier, Toyota Safety Sense is made up of five innovative systems designed to ensure your safety. These systems often employ radar systems and specialized cameras to detect potentially dangerous situations and warn you. Take a look at how each system works.

Pre-Collision System – Forward-facing radar and camera systems have the ability to scan the road ahead and detect imminent collisions. The system then emits audible and visual warnings and will brake automatically if you do not apply the brakes yourself.

Lane Departure Alert – This feature is designed to help you stay in your lane and employs a specialized camera that tracks the painted road markings. When the system detects a drift in your driving pattern it will send you a warning.

Auto High Beams – Who doesn’t hate being blinded by high beams? Avoid being the cause of this unsafe situation with Auto High Beams, which employ a camera to detect oncoming traffic and will automatically switch from high beams to low beams.

Pedestrian Detection – A valuable asset in crowded urban areas, Pedestrian Detection uses millimeter-wave radar and a camera to detect pedestrian shapes in your path. It will then send you audio and visual warnings and automatically brake for you when necessary.

Dynamic Radar Cruise Control – This innovative safety system features forward-sensing radar and a camera to monitor your speed and the distance from the vehicle in front of you. Dynamic Radar Cruise Control will then adjust your speed to maintain a safe distance and has the ability to keep a preset following distance.

If safety is your priority, the Toyota Safety Sense system is an incredible asset and by learning more about Toyota Safety Sense, you can make an informed car-buying decision here at White River Toyota.
