Live from Geneva Motor Show – Day 1 update
Bart Eelen

 

Here are some updates from Geneva Motor Show…

As weird as it might sound there are ninjas on the Toyota stand. Well, we can explain. Toyota is presenting Toyota Safety Sense, a set of newly developed active safety technologies. The aim is that these safety features prevent or mitigate collisions, just like ninjas would protect you from an intruder. Every hour there is a martial art demonstration by professionals and you can also take your own safety pose (you can either share it on social networks or simply walk away with your memorable image).

 


 

But back to serious business. The Toyota Safety Sense consists of:

–         Pre-Collision System (PCS) which detects object ahead of the vehicle and reduces the risk of hitting the car in front

–         Lane Departure Alert (LDA) monitors lane markings and if you leave your lane without indicating, it will warn you

–         Automatic High Beam (AHB) detects other vehicles’ lights and adjust automatically high and low beam

–         Road Sign Alert (RSA) reads road signs for you, and displays them on the dash

 

To make it more clear, have a look at the light-hearted videos that explain what this is all about.
