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 rotary encoder on a rear wheel measures distance and speed of the vehicle.

An inertial measurement unit on the measures acceleration and angle to determine vehicle behavior.

GPS antennas on the roof estimate and orientation even before the is in motion.

More details on the below (click to enlarge).

interesting that, if you look at the car and the Google self-driving car, the two are identical in terms of the hardware Both rely on a high-end on the roof, multiple radars on the GPS and IMU, and a rotary encoder. said, each vehicle’s and software systems are probably different, and Google, having its vehicle in real driving remains the leader when it to fully autonomous behavior.

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.
