The second-generation Toyota Safety Sense being rolled out in 2018 will continue to utilize the single-lens camera and millimeter-wave radar currently used in Toyota Safety Sense. It will be further enhanced with the following to prevent accidents and reduce the number of deaths and injuries from traffic accidents, and ease driver burden:

  • Expansion of the scope of hazard detection, and improving functionality such as through improvements to the performance of the camera and radar
  • Utilization of the advanced driving support feature Lane Tracing Assist (LTA)
  • Reduction of the size of the unit to improve ease of installation
