When the millimeter-wave radar and monocular camera sensors detect a vehicle, pedestrian, bicyclist or motorcycle ahead and determine that a collision is likely, it alerts the driver with a buzzer and warning on the display. If the driver activates the brakes, pre-collision brake assist supplements the force being applied to the pedal. If the driver cannot depress the brake pedal, the system automatically activates pre-collision braking to help avoid a collision or mitigate the impact force. If the system determines there is a high possibility of a frontal collision with an oncoming vehicle, it alerts the driver and activates the brakes to help mitigate injury to people and damage to the vehicle.
Emergency Steering Assist
If the Emergency Steering Assist system detects a collision with a vehicle, motorcycle, pedestrian or bicyclist ahead is likely, there is sufficient space for the vehicle to be steered within its lane and the driver has begun an evasive steering maneuver, it assists steering to help enhance vehicle stability and prevent lane departure. In addition, even if the driver doesn’t move the steering wheel, an optional active steering function supports collision avoidance by steering the vehicle within its lane while gently braking.
Dynamic Radar Cruise Control
In addition to maintaining a constant speed, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control uses the millimeter-wave radar and monocular camera sensors to detect a vehicle driving ahead and maintain an appropriate distance between vehicles. When the driver operates the turn signal lamp at approximately 80km/h or over, preliminary acceleration is applied when following a preceding vehicle that is travelling slower than the preset vehicle speed, or preliminary deceleration is applied when changing lanes into a lane where there is a preceding vehicle that is travelling slower than the preset vehicle speed, helping smooth overtaking and lane change.
LTA (Lane Tracing Assist)
When driving on expressways or automobile-only roads with lane lines using Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, the system helps assist the steering operation required to keep the vehicle in its lane. Enhanced recognition and control performance enable assistance on gentle curves, smoothly keeping the vehicle in the centre of its lane with minimal swaying.
FCTA (Front Cross Traffic Alert)
If the system detects a vehicle approaching from the front left or right when entering an intersection, it will attract the driver’s attention with an animated warning in the colour Head-up Display showing the direction the vehicle is approaching from. If the driver continues to proceed despite the approaching vehicle, it will further prompt the driver with a buzzer and warnings on the display.
PDA (Proactive Driving Assist)
PDA discreetly and gently supports driving in situations such as on general roads, contributing to the driver’s peace of mind. It provides the following support to enable appropriate driving operations; steering / deceleration support in response to pedestrians / bicyclists / parked vehicles, deceleration support in response to preceding vehicles / corners, and steering assist.
Panoramic View Monitor
Panoramic View Monitor combines video from cameras mounted on the front, sides and rear of the vehicle to display a composite image showing a bird’s-eye view of the vehicle, helping the driver to check areas around the vehicle that are difficult to see from the driver’s seat. The monitor offers 3 views: See-through View - looks through the body and seats as if they were transparent; Side Clearance View - lets you check the sides of the vehicle for safe clearance; and Cornering View - helps you avoid hitting obstacles on narrow roads.
PKSB (Parking Support Brake)
While the vehicle is travelling at a low speed, if there is a possibility of contact with a static object around the vehicle, a vehicle or a pedestrian approaching from the rear, the system applies drive force control and brake control. Detection covers a wide area surrounding the vehicle, helping to avoid minor collisions and reduce damage.
Lexus Teammate Advanced Park
Combining information from cameras and ultrasonic sensors that monitor the vehicle’s surroundings, Advanced Park supports appropriate recognition and parking in open parking spots. In addition to automatically controlling steering, accelerating, braking and shift changes, it provides smooth parking by continuously displaying a bird’s-eye view of blind spots and the target car park location. Parking operation starts smoothly once the driver stops next to the parking space, presses the main switch, checks the vehicle’s surroundings and the parking space, and presses the start switch on the display. Information about the vehicle’s surroundings is communicated to the driver in an easy-to-understand manner, showing the locations of obstacles on the display. If there is the possibility of hitting an obstacle, it alerts the driver and helps avoid it by applying brake control.
