While many passive safety features Toyota already offers, such as signal indicators on side mirrors, are designed to help keep you safe, Toyota is working on Advanced Active-Safety Systems to help ensure your safety every time you’re behind the wheel.

Toyota’s always been know for reliability, but with the new line-up, Toyota’s starting to become known for something else – safety. Toyota’s new advanced active-safety systems will be available across its line-up. No matter if you want a Toyota Prius, new Camry, or Toyota Tacoma, your new vehicle will come with some top-notch advanced active-safety systems.

These systems, shown off in Tokyo last week, include upgraded pre-crash braking system, a vehicle to vehicle and vehicle to infrastructure communications system, refined auto-parking, and auto-adjust headlamps.

“There is a limit to reducing the number of fatalities through passive safety,” he said. “We must also focus on active safety.”

While some of these safety elements, such as the auto-braking systems, will be available in the United States next year, others will take a bit longer to get to our shores.

Many believe that these advanced active-safety systems are a stepping-stone to producing a mas-marketed fully autonomous car.
