Pedestrian-avoidance steer assist system

Advancements in our Active Safety technology

In the search for a world where vehicle collisions and pedestrian fatalities are eliminated, Toyota Motor Corporation (TMC) has made a significant step with the announcement of the Pedestrian-Avoidance Steer Assist System.

How it works

By incorporating technologies seen in last year’s advanced Pre-Crash Safety (PCS) system, Pre-Crash Brake Assist function and Pre-Crash Brake, this next generation enhancement sees the addition of our automated steering.

As with the previously trialled PCS, the new system will detect the risk of collision with an obstacle or pedestrian. Warning the driver with visual and audible warnings initially, both Pre-Crash Brake Assist and Pre-Crash Brake functions are activated should the system detect a likely or unavoidable collision. In a situation where there is enough room available, the steering system will manoeuvre the vehicle away from the hazard and brakes will be applied. In a situation where there is not enough room available, it will activate the brakes alone.

A safer future

TMC plans to bring advanced PCS to market by 2015, with PCS Steer Assist to follow and with it their vision of a safer and more secure transport system that reduces fatalities and injuries to zero.
