Toyota Pre-Collision System

2019 Toyota RAV4 SAFETY

The Toyota Safety Sense™ package has earned the respect of Fishers drivers, and it’s not hard to see why. The features it includes track movement in your area, and it can intervene to prevent collisions. Among these amenities, the Toyota Pre-Collision System is the most widely known. It works by using a front-facing camera and a laser to detect any objects in your path and alert you when it’s time to brake. When necessary, it can even bring your vehicle to a complete stop automatically.

How Does the Toyota Pre-Collision System Work?

Now that you have a good idea of what the Toyota Pre-Collision System does, you may wonder how it will function on your day-to-day drives around the Carmel area.

  • A Toyota model with the Pre-Collision System comes with a front-facing camera and an invisible laser.
  • It will use these components to measure the distance between your vehicle and the obstacle that is directly in front of you.
  • With your speed taken into account, the system determines the likelihood of a collision.
  • If it determines that a collision is likely, your Toyota vehicle will send out an audiovisual alert to notify you. You should manually apply the brakes as soon as possible.
  • If the alerts do not enable you to slow or stop your vehicle, the Toyota Pre-Collision System may apply the breaks automatically or deploy them at full force with brake assist.

While this is an excellent safety feature, attentive driving is still essential. With the Toyota Pre-Collision System, you can enjoy the added protection to prevent any inevitable surprises that can happen on the road.

Toyota Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection

There are several different versions of the Toyota Pre-Collision System available. 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.

In vehicles with Pedestrian Detection, an additional grille-mounted system uses millimeter-wave radar to check your surroundings for smaller objects that the PCS could miss! It examines the size, shape, and motion of the smaller object so PD can identify vulnerable people and apply the brakes as necessary.
