As every major car manufacturer has increased its safety measures and installed new prevention systems, Toyota has to adapt. The Japanese manufacturer announced that it will introduce a new line of safety features for all of its models starting next year. The smart new technologies and systems will make driving safer.
 
The new features, announced at a safety seminar in Toyota City, will be rolled out in new models from 2015. Toyota is also creating Safety Sense active safety packages, tailored to suit different size vehicles that will be made available worldwide by the end of 2017.
 
Toyota Safety Sense Packages
 
 
Among the new features are a new Communicating Radar Cruise Control that uses vehicle-to-vehicle communication to make it easier for preceding and following vehicles to keep a safe distance apart.
 
 
Toyota will also introduce LED Array Adaptive High Beam System (AHS).  This system uses multiple, independently controlled LEDs arranged in a single row. This gives a wider illumination without dazzling drivers of on-coming or preceding vehicles.
 

Toyota Safety Sense will be bringing these instruments all across its range initially in Japan and subsequently in the USA and Europe, by the end of 2017.
 
Designated C and P packages, for mid-size and larger vehicles respectively, the packs bring together several of Toyota’s existing active safety technologies, including the Pre-Crash Safety system, Lane Keep Assist and automatic high beam. The C package uses a laser radar and the P package a millimetre-wave radar, each combined with a camera to secure high performance and reliability.
