Technology Tuesday: Lexus Pre-Crash System
The Lexus Pre-Crash Safety System compensates for human error with vigilant always-on sensors ensuring safe journeys. With the Pre-Crash Safety system fitted, your car can optimize crucial settings, in the vital moments before a frontal collision, to minimize the risk of injury. A radar sensor, mounted on the front of the car, constantly monitors the distance and closing speed of any approaching vehicle. If a crash becomes unavoidable, the car alters its suspension settings for optimum braking performance. The Brake Assist system, which increases braking is also primed and the front seatbelts are tightened before impact.
