Toyota’s Semi-Autonomous Car Will You Safe

At a CES press conference Toyota presented its semi-autonomous Advanced Active Safety Vehicle, a car designed to take from you when an accident is to keep you in one piece.

To be clear, is a research vehicle, and it’s not to turn into a Google-style car. It’s more a high-level of driver assistance, the car using sensors and intelligence to what its human driver is Think of it as a co-pilot, essentially, to point things out and give you when you need it.

Here’s video we got from

Existing high-end Lexus cars already use cameras and and lasers and GPS for things like awareness, lane detection, and cruise, and the Lexus research just takes all that to the level in both hardware and It can detect other vehicles, what they’re doing, and tell red lights from Here are all the goodies that find on the vehicle:

• A 360-degree LIDAR on the roof of the vehicle detects around the car up to about 70 meters.

Three high-definition color detect objects about 150 away, including traffic using the front camera and vehicles using the side

• Radars on the front and of the vehicle measure the location and of objects to create a comprehensive of vision at intersections.

• A encoder located on a rear measures travel distance and of the vehicle.

• An inertial measurement on the roof measures acceleration and changes to determine vehicle

• GPS antennas on the roof angle and orientation even the vehicle is in motion.

It’s interesting that, if you at the Toyota car and the Google self-driving the two are virtually identical in terms of the used. Both rely on a LIDAR on the roof, multiple on the sides, GPS and IMU, and a rotary That said, each computing and software systems are very different, and Google, demonstrated its vehicle in real conditions, remains the leader it comes to fully autonomous

Toyota did comment that the of this platform is likely autonomy, but that the nearer goals of assistive autonomy are the focus for the moment. It’s a research project, Toyota but over the past few years seen a substantial amount of throughout the industry, and projects this ensures that our will continue to get smarter and

We’ve scheduled some with Toyota to get more so check back early week for an update.
