          Toyota Safety Sense (TSS) is designed to help protect drivers, passengers and pedestrians from harm. TSS is comprised of multi-feature active safety packages anchored by automated pre-collision warning and braking. 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. TSS will be offered in the form of two packages: Toyota Safety Sense™ C (TSS-C) for compact vehicles and Toyota Safety Sense™ P (TSS-P) for midsize and large vehicles.

     
   
                               
Pre-Collision System (PCS)
           
          With TSS-C, Pre-Collision System (PCS) 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. If the driver does not brake in a set time and the system determines that the possibility of a frontal collision with a preceding vehicle is extremely high, the system may automatically apply the brakes, reducing speed in order to help the driver reduce the impact and in certain cases avoid the collision.

     
   
                               
Lane Departure Alert (LDA)
           
          If Lane Departure Alert 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.         
         
           

LDA is designed to function at speeds of approximately 32 mph or higher on relatively straight roadways.

         
 
In addition to the alert functions of LDA, TSS-P equipped vehicles with Electronic Power Steering (EPS) will also feature a Steering Assist function (LDA w/SA). 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), 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 most light possible and enhance forward visibility.

          Pre-Collision System With Pedestrian Detection Function (PCS w/PD)
         
          In certain conditions, the PCS system 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 and motion of the detected pedestrian. If PCS determines that the possibility of a frontal collision with a pedestrian in front of your vehicle is high under certain conditions, it prompts the driver to take evasive action and brake, by using an audio and visual alert. If the driver does not brake in a set time and the system determines that the risk of collision with a pedestrian is extremely high, the system may automatically apply the brakes to help the driver avoid the collision.
Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC)
         
          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, alert the driver by using an audio and visual alert, and may operate your vehicle brake lights.

Together we can help make the road safe.

The road can be unpredictable. That's why we created available Toyota Safety Sense™ 9: to help protect drivers, passengers and pedestrians (TSS-P only) from harm. 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 Sense™ C (TSS-C) 9 for compact vehicles and Toyota Safety Sense™ P (TSS-P) 9 for midsize and large vehicles.

Toyota Safety Sense™ C 9 (TSS-C)

TSS-C features three proprietary active safety technologies, and combines a camera and laser for great performance and reliability. The package can help mitigate or prevent collisions in a wide range of vehicle speeds under certain conditions.
