Toyota Safety Sense Designed for Safety

What Does the New Toyota Safety Sense™ Have in Store for Drivers?

Second Generation TSS Technology Additions and Updates

Toyota has announced that it will continue to develop its Toyota Safety Sense™ technology. Toyota has debuted its plans for a second generation of its TSS suite of safety technologies. This update includes new tech as well as improvements on existing systems within the TSS umbrella. Check out what the second generation TSS technology additions and updates will bring you.

Attentive Driving and Accident Protection

Like the first generation of the Toyota Safety Sense™ system, the second generation will continue Toyota’s mission to increase attentiveness while driving and prevent accidents or mitigate the effects if unavoidable. This system will focus on three areas of accident protection: preventing or mitigating frontal collisions, keeping drivers within their lanes, and enhancing road safety during nighttime driving. To achieve these goals, Toyota has updated three systems and added two additional features to its Safety Sense™ suite.

“At Toyota, we are committed to making high-level driver assistance systems more widely available and even more affordable across a broader range of our vehicles,” said Chris Nielsen, executive vice president of product support and chief quality officer of Toyota Motor North America. “The second generation of Toyota Safety Sense™ takes our industry-leading suite of safety technologies to the next level, delivering new advanced and intuitive protections that are another step toward a future without traffic injuries or fatalities.”

TSS Second Generation Systems

Toyota has updated the Pre-Collision System, the Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, and the Lane Departure Alert system for this second generation of the TSS. These updates increase accuracy and safety so you can have greater peace of mind while out on the road.

As well as the improvements made to existing technologies, Toyota has developed two new safety systems to include in the new TSS generation. The first is the new Road Sign Assist. This is a technology that is designed to display road sign information on the dashboard meter display and, if equipped, the Head-Up Display to increase attentiveness and visibility. The second technology is the Lane Tracing Assist system. This technology system provides steering support to help keep the driver in the center of their lane while the Dynamic Radar Cruise Control is in operation.
