All new Toyota models come equipped with a version of the Toyota Safety Sense™ suite of driver-assist features, and the Toyota Pre-Collision System is among the most well-known. This safety feature monitors your surroundings and works to prevent frontal collisions or reduce their impact to keep you and your passengers safe. So how does the Toyota Pre-Collision System work for you on the Palmdale streets? Find out in this guide from Frontier Toyota!

How Does the Toyota Pre-Collision System Work?

How does the Toyota Pre-Collision System work? Below are the main components and functionalities of this innovative safety system:

  • A front-facing camera and an invisible laser measure the distance between your vehicle and cars or obstacles directly in front of you.
  • Based on distance measurements and your speed, the system determines the likelihood of a collision and emits audio and visual alerts to notify you of the danger. When this occurs, you should apply the brakes as soon as possible.
  • If you do not take action and apply the brakes quickly enough, the system automatically engages the brakes in an attempt to avoid or reduce the impact of a collision.

This system is absolutely not a substitute for careful, attentive driving on your part. However, the Toyota Pre-Collision System certainly does provide some added peace of mind that your vehicle is working to protect you and your passengers.

Toyota Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection

As previously mentioned, Toyota Safety Sense™ comes in various formats, and with the two most common versions, the Toyota Pre-Collision System also includes Pedestrian Detection. These vehicles feature an additional grille-mounted radar to check your surroundings for smaller objects, including pedestrians, bike riders, and more. It will alert you to apply the blakes or automatically do so in these scenarios, as well.
