This car collision technology can now not only save big car to car collisions, but also stop your car if it is going to hit pedestrians.
With collision-avoidance systems becoming more advanced and widely used, Toyota has taken the technology up another level by fashioning a system that can detect not only other vehicles but human beings in the roadway. And it will stop the car if the driver doesn’t.
This video shows the technology in action:
The existing collision detection system in Toyota and other competitor cars are designed to guard against collisions with large objects, such as stopped vehicles or walls, and don’t do a good job when it comes to people. Toyota’s new system, uses a millimeter wave radar and stereo camera to constantly monitor what’s in front of the vehicle. And thus able to detect smaller area objects such as human beings and auto apply brakes to prevent any casualty.
