Toyota Employs Pedestrian Collision Avoidance System For Its Suv


Toyota Employs Pedestrian Collision Avoidance System for Its SUVToyota Motor Corp partially remodeled its "Land Cruiser 200 Series" high-grade SUV (sport-utility vehicle) and released it Aug 17, 2015.
For the new model, Toyota employed "Safety Sense P," a system that helps avoid collisions with pedestrians, for the first time. It detects pedestrians and preceding vehicles with a milliwave radar device and monocular camera and automatically applies the brakes to avoid collisions.


The operating speed of the system is about 10-80km/h for detection of pedestrians and about 10km/h to the maximum speed of the vehicle for detection of vehicles. It reduces vehicle speed by about 30km/h for pedestrians and by about 40km/h for preceding vehicles.

For example, if the system detects a pedestrian when the vehicle is traveling at a speed of 30km/h, it is likely to be able to avoid a collision. The milliwave radar device and monocular camera are products of Denso Corp.
