LinkedIn +

Luxury vehicle brand Lexus, part of Toyota, has announced that it will equip all of its US vehicles with its advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) Safety System+, starting with its 2020 models.

“We are working toward preventing crashes before they happen,” said David Christ, group vice president and general manager, Lexus Division.

“That’s why we have developed some of the most advanced safety features on the road today, and now those systems will be standard equipment on every model we sell.”

Designed to help protect drivers, passengers and pedestrians, the Lexus Safety System+ is an integrated suite of four advanced active safety packages anchored by automated pre-collision warning and braking. They include Pre-Collison System with Pedestrian Detection; Lane Departure Alert (LDA), with audio and visual warnings, and steering wheel vibrations; Intelligent High Beams; and Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, which uses radar and camera technology to help maintain a preset speed and following distance from the vehicle ahead.
