Toyota and Lexus vehicle PRESENT an active research advanced security at CES
Toyota Motor Corporation (TMC) and its Lexus division today unveiled their vehicle search on the active enhanced security for the first time at the International CES to demonstrate their continued efforts in the area of autonomous vehicle safety technologies and explain Toyota's approach aimed at reducing the number of deaths and injuries on the roads worldwide. This vehicle, which is based on the Lexus LS, advancing the industry towards a new era of technology integrated security management.
The strategy director of the company - designated Concept integrated safety management, road safety considered as a holistic mixture comprising people, vehicles and the driving environment. The strategy includes five phases of execution in matters of conduct:
The moment the driver and the vehicle starts An displacement from a parking position
The active safety systems designed to avoid a collision
The pre-collision device affecting the preparation before a collision
Passive safety favoring survival in a collision
Rescue and response after a collision
While the major components covered by these research efforts could lead to the creation of a fully autonomous car in the future, the vision is not about a car that drives itself. Toyota and Lexus plan rather technologies that enhance the skills of the driver, following the principle that a more competent driver is a driver about.
Vehicle Safety Research: An overview of the future
The vehicle search on the active advanced security Lexus is equipped with a series of sensors and automated control systems that observe, process and respond to the environment of the vehicle. These include a GPS system, stereo cameras, radar and device detection and ranging (LIDAR).
The systems of the vehicle are able to follow the movement of objects in the vicinity of the vehicle, to distinguish between a green light and a red light to measure the trajectory of the vehicle on the road:
LIDAR laser system has a 360 degrees available on the roof of the vehicle detects objects situated close to the car, and up to a distance of about 70 meters.
Three high-resolution color cameras detect objects situated about 150 meters, which includes the detection of traffic lights with the help of the camera before and vehicles approaching the aid of lateral cameras.
The radar systems has front and side of the vehicle measure the location and speed of displacement of the objects to create a field of vision in all directions at intersections.
An indicator for measuring the distance is measured on a rear wheel speed and the distance of travel of the vehicle.
An inertial measurement unit on the roof measuring the variations in the acceleration and angles to determine the behavior of the vehicle.
ARRANGED of GPS antennas on the roof calculate the angle and orientation of the vehicle even before it begins to move.
The vehicle research is a test platform for the development of systems capable of improving the perception that the driver is its environment, which will help in the process of decision making and improve their skills conduct in general.
The fruit of decades of research in matters of advanced security technologies
The vehicle research benefited the rich heritage of Toyota in matters of innovation and progress regarding the security. Include the features integrated into many vehicles as part of Toyota and Lexus lines, including the anti-lock brake system (ABS), traction control and smart stop technology. More recently, the advanced security features as the system keeps track of assistance (LKA), the Blind Spot Monitor (BSM) and the pre-collision system have active security gate at a level unprecedented.
Lexus LS 2013 offers the most perfect in the world pre-collision system (A-PCS). This system helps the driver avoid or mitigate the consequences of a collision with vehicles or pedestrians has different speeds in the city or on the highway, and even in the dark. Lexus LS 2013 also presents a system of care improves road assistance (LKA), which uses sensors to help monitor the position of the vehicle on the road and react in potentially hazardous conditions. A blind-spot monitor improves (BSM) with millimeter wave radar sensors monitor the blind spots from a speed of 16 km / h, while the cross traffic warning system back (ATCM) aid warn driver of the presence of vehicles approaching when running back. On the road, the controller adaptive cruise control (ACC) constantly monitors the distance to vehicles in front and is able to operate at any speed, the vehicle completely stop and resume the preset speed when the channel is free.
Lexus LS 2013 is a showcase of the progress and developments of automation technologies that have been realized during the last decade.
Driving in a smarter world
Toyota committed itself to initiate new research in the field of intelligent transportation systems (ITS) to integrate the car in the driving environment. To accelerate the development of the communications infrastructure of a vehicle to another and between the vehicle and the road, Toyota initiates large-scale operations in November its new test facility ITS LOCATED 8.6 acres the Higashi-Fuji Technical Center Toyota City, Japan. The driving environment incorporating the model of urban roads is equipped channels and a signaling Driving and simulates real conditions of traffic with vehicles from pedestrians and control devices.
ITS facilities use specialized signals shortwave radio for communications between vehicles and between vehicles and infrastructure over a wide area to create potential collision warnings. Here are the warnings that this system can produce:
Impending collision in an intersection without visibility
Vehicle changing lanes in the blind spot of another vehicle
Rear collision with a vehicle stopped before
The system is designed to help prevent accidents involving pedestrians and other vehicles with the help of data are continuously collected by the vehicle from other vehicles, infrastructure and pedestrians. By connecting people, vehicles, the driving environment and infrastructure with latest technology and electronic communications, we can create an environment safer and more efficient driving. The STI testing facilities help the Toyota company working in favor of the practice and precocious adoption of systems more reliable thanks to continuous tests that can be difficult to perform on public roads and in constantly changing environments.
A cooperative development
ITS technology is developed at the global scale and cooperative way between most major manufacturers and regulatory authorities, and in collaboration with international governing bodies expense of this technology. Toyota will continue to adopt a gradual and step by step individual technologies tested in accordance with requirements of entities regulation, legal and social implications of each country.
