The Toyota Pre-collision System with Pedestrian Detection is a useful safety feature available in Toyota models that feature the Toyota Safety Sense system. Toyota Safety Sense is a system of active safety features designed to assist the driver in avoiding accidents in certain circumstances. The Pre-Collision system functions using a camera integrated into the top of your windshield and a radar sensor which is able to detect certain things in your vehicle’s path.

While a pre-collision system isn’t all that special with today’s technology, what really sets Toyota’s apart is its Pedestrian Detection system. In addition to being able to detect vehicles ahead of the vehicle, your Toyota’s pre-collision system is also designed to detect any pedestrians that may walk out in front of your vehicle.
