Toyota’s 2022 Tundra will use Tier 1 supplier Magna’s advanced driver assist systems (ADAS), including its next-generation cameras and electronic control units, which enable the vehicle’s 3D and surround-view systems.
The vehicle is fitted with Magna’s complete surround-view system, including five cameras and an electronic control unit to provide a high-resolution view around the vehicle, assisting the driver in various situations. Data from the cameras is fused and the system can render a seamlessly stitched, ‘fly-around’ 3D image of the vehicle and its environment upon startup. This feature gives the driver a holistic view of the surroundings and greater reassurance when maneuvering the vehicle.
Magna’s advanced trailer assist and off-road functions have also been launched for the first time as part of the system. This includes the Trailer Guidance system, a semi-automated function that helps a driver back a trailer into the desired position, which is particularly useful when backing into tight spaces.
The Tundra also features a multi-terrain view that allows drivers to customize their view between bird’s eye, front, side and rear, enhancing visibility from different angles. Furthermore, a unique ‘see-through hood’ feature enables drivers to see under the front hood of the vehicle – supporting them in off-road conditions and helping to avoid rocks or other obstacles while off-road.
“We’re proud to be launching one of our most advanced vision systems that provides truck and trailer consumers with enhanced levels of comfort, safety and peace of mind,” said Sharath Reddy, Magna Electronics SVP. “Trailering can be a challenging task and with this intuitive system, consumers can feel safer and more confident in maneuvering the vehicle, whatever they’re hauling.”
