|Press Release :||Toyota’s Pre-collision System|
Toyota has developed a “Pre-Collision System” (PCS) that helps avoid collisions at high-speed traveling, which is in the speed range between 25 mph to around 40 mph where the number of fatal and injury-causing accidents raises.
The PCS alerts the driver when the danger of a rear-end accident is detected; and when the driver applies the brakes, the system doubles the braking force from the force applied by drivers and thus enables deceleration of up to 40 mph (when the driver’s car is traveling at around 50 mph and the preceding car is traveling at 25 mph).
If the driver doesn’t apply the brakes after being notified of the situation, the car will be able to automatically decelerated to between around 10 mph and 20 mph (when the driver’s car is traveling at around 30 mph and the preceding car is traveling at 12 mph)
Toyota said that the new PCS will be used in a different type of models and will be equipped in the “soon-to-be-launched” Toyota models.
