How Does the Toyota Pre-Collision System Work?
There’s no substitute for a driver’s full awareness at the wheel, but with the Toyota Safety Sense™ package, you’ll enjoy additional protection against surprises on Malibu and Culver City roads. One of the most important features in this driver-assistance package is the Toyota Pre-Collision System, which uses sensors to monitor your surroundings, and issues audio and visual warnings if you’re in danger of colliding with an obstacle.
Preventing Crashes with the Toyota Pre-Collision System
The best way to prevent crashes is to utilize safe and attentive driving practices, but since no one is perfect, this Toyota active safety technology can assist the driver in emergencies. The system uses radar to measure the distance between your vehicle and whatever happens to be in front of it. It also takes into account your current speed, letting you know when it’s time to break. Once you apply the brakes, it will also maximize your braking power using Brake Assist (BA). If you don’t slow down quickly enough, this technology will even brake for you automatically. If there’s enough time, it can bring you to a complete stop.
The Toyota Pre-Collision System (PCS) is also available with Pedestrian Detection (PD). In some cases, Bicycle Detection is also available.
