Together we can help make the road safe.
The road can be unpredictable. That's why we created available Toyota Safety Senseâ„¢ 14: to help protect drivers, passengers and pedestrians (TSS-P only) from harm. Toyota Safety Senseâ„¢ (TSS) 14 is designed to help protect drivers, passengers, people in other vehicles on the road, and pedestrians (TSS-P and AHB). TSS is comprised of multi-feature active safety packages anchored by automated pre-collision warning and braking. TSS is designed to support the driver's awareness, decision-making and vehicle operation over a wide range of speeds under certain conditions. Packaged together in an integrated system, TSS features help address three key areas of accident protection: mitigating or preventing frontal collisions, helping to keep drivers within their lane, and enhancing road safety during nighttime driving. Always drive safely, obey traffic speed limits and laws, and focus on the road while driving.
TSS will be offered in the form of two packages: Toyota Safety Senseâ„¢ C (TSS-C) 14 for compact vehicles and Toyota Safety Senseâ„¢ P (TSS-P) 14 for midsize and large vehicles.
Toyota Safety Senseâ„¢ C 14 features three proprietary active safety
Toyota Safety Senseâ„¢ P 14 combines an in-vehicle camera and front-grille-mounted, millimeter-wave radar for enhanced performance and more functionality. â€¢ Pre-Collision System 15 with Pedestrian Detection function 12 (PCS w/PD) â€”Vehicle Detection & Pedestrian Detection â€¢ Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist function (LDA w/SA) 16 (EPS-equipped vehicles) â€¢ Automatic High Beams (AHB) 13 â€¢ Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC) 17
See Owner's Manual for additional details on system operations, limitations, and precautions.
Pre-Collision System (PCS)
With TSS-C, 14 Pre-Collision System (PCS) 15 uses an in-vehicle camera and laser to help detect the vehicle in front of your vehicle. When PCS determines that the possibility of a frontal collision with that vehicle is high, it prompts the driver to take evasive action and brake, by using an audio and visual alert. If the driver notices the hazard and brakes, the system may provide additional braking force using Brake Assist. 18 If the driver does not
Lane Departure Alert (LDA)
If Lane Departure Alert 11 determines that the vehicle is starting to unintentionally deviate from its lane, the system alerts the driver with an audio and visual alert. When the alerts occur, the driver must check the surrounding road situation and carefully operate the steering wheel to move the vehicle back to the center part of their lane.
In addition to the alert functions of LDA, TSS-P 14 equipped vehicles with Electronic Power Steering (EPS) will also feature a Steering Assist function (LDA w/SA). 16 When equipped and enabled, if the system determines that the vehicle is on a path to unintentionally depart from its lane, the system may provide small corrective steering inputs to the steering wheel for a short period of time to help keep the vehicle in its lane.
Automatic High Beams (AHB)
Automatic High Beams (AHB), 13 found in both TSS-C and TSS-P, is a safety system designed to help drivers see more of what's ahead at nighttime without dazzling other drivers. When enabled, AHB uses an in-vehicle camera to help detect the headlights of oncoming vehicles and taillights of preceding vehicles, then automatically switches between high and low beams as appropriate to provide the
Pre-Collision System With Pedestrian
Detection Function (PCS w/PD)
With Toyota Safety Senseâ„¢ P, 14 PCS 15 uses an in-vehicle camera and front-grille-mounted, millimeter-wave radar to help detect the vehicle in front of your vehicle.
In certain conditions, the PCS system included with the TSS-P package may also help to detect a pedestrian in front of your vehicle. The in-vehicle camera of PCS detects a potential pedestrian based on size, profile
Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC)
TSS-P equipped vehicles
Once a vehicle speed is set by the driver (approximately 28 mph or higher), DRCC uses a front-grille-mounted, millimeter-wave radar and an in-vehicle camera to detect a preceding vehicle and help determine its distance.
If the vehicle ahead is detected traveling at a speed slower than your set speed or within your distance range setting, the system is designed to automatically decelerate your vehicle without having to cancel the cruise control. When a greater reduction in vehicle speed is necessary, the system may apply the brakes, may alert the driver by using an audio and visual alert, and may operate your vehicle brake lights. The system will then respond to changes in the speed of the vehicle ahead in order to help maintain the vehicle-to-vehicle distance set by the driver. When there is no longer a preceding vehicle driving slower than your vehicle's set speed, the system accelerates until the set speed is reached and returns to constant speed cruising.
