Lexus Unveils car, the danger of the street expected

Lexus Unveils car, the danger of the street expected

It can detect a potential problem at 500 metres distance and tell the difference between red and green light. It can expect a corner even before the driver turns the wheel. It is designed to prevent a crash, but make it easier to survive a collision even as they automatically calls for help.

Toyota's Lexus luxury brand is the public give a first look on its advanced active safety research vehicle on the annual Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this week. Also known as the AASRV, is to test it and a variety of automated vehicle safety technologies that could be used in the not-too-distant future in series vehicles to demonstrate according to Toyota officials.

"In our quest for more automated high technologies develop, we believe that the driver needs to be fully engaged," said Templin. "For Toyota and Lexus, driverless car is only part of the story. "Our vision is a car with a smart, always attentive co-pilot whose capabilities to the safer driving contribute."But in contrast to some prototypes, the AASRV is not designed for operation with complete autonomy. Mark Templin, general manager of the Lexus brand stressed that the aim to engage and to improve the skills of the driver, instead driving a car into a fully automated activity to make.

The concept behind the AASRV said to view safety as a "holistic blend" of persons, vehicles and driving environment, Toyota. The technology used in the vehicle safety should be back to the drivers Act of the moment, is switched on like a car until home safely - or, in the case of a collision by the time as rescue and response after a crash has occurred.

A variety of technologies to 'see' what is on the road as well as in the Interior of the car, the vehicle includes security. These include:

A roof mounted, 360-degree LIDAR-laser which detecting obstacles and other objects at distances up to about 230 meters, three HD cameras can also obstacles - spotting, and reading lamps on traffic - up to 500 metres distance.Front and side-mounted radar to create a field of "Vision" around the vehicle;An inertial measurement system, which determine how the car behaves, can just for runners or sudden driver input, for example; and GPS antennas on the roof help of an integrated navigation system compare motion of the vehicle on the road itself.
Today's cars come loaded with more and more digital security technology. Electronic stability control required by federal law since the start of the model year 2011 and has saved already thousands of lives has been credited by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

New cross-traffic alert systems an oncoming vehicle can save otherwise out of sight for a driver out of a parking lot, locate. And a number of vehicles, including the latest generation Lexus LS, equipped with pre-collision warning systems, a driver for a potential crash to indicate. The LS system can bring to a halt even the car, if the driver does not react in good time – and it is designed to reduce the impact if a crash is inevitable.

While the consumer traditionally has focused Electronics Show on goodies such as televisions, smartphones and computers, it has a growing presence of automakers and suppliers focus on traffic engineering of Infotainment to hin to intelligent transportation systems, or ITS views.

The AASRV will participate in the smart car research, which could soon find communication with a roadway infrastructure intelligent - and any other vehicles. While letting also motorists know ahead of problems, such as smooth roads, construction and traffic congestion could that reduce such as the probability of collisions at blind intersections.

Toyota noted, it is one of the eight automakers crash avoidance metrics partnership (CAMP) vehicle safety communication 3 (VSC3) Consortium, designed, to various system participants.

"The real value of the research projects like this increases the focus on what seemed an unreachable dream a few years ago and is now more plausible," Templin said. "We look at the ultimate goal of a society of that values mobility TMC and Lexus, the Elimination of road deaths and injuries."
