Toyota cars to come equipped with automatic braking by 2017

Toyota cars to come equipped with automatic braking by 2017

Toyota recently revealed their plan of upping the safety quotient in all their cars. Under this initiative, the company plans to equip all their cars with automatic emergency braking by 2017.

According to the Japanese carmaker, 25 out of the 30 models from Lexus and Toyota will be equipped with this safety feature as standard equipment. In a bid to prevent collisions at different vehicle speeds, these proprietary safety systems will use radars, laser beams and cameras. Globally, reports have revealed that automatic braking has helped cut down the probabilities of rear-end crashes by 40 per cent and insurance injury claims by 35 per cent.

National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety had last week announced the implementation of this safety norm by 2022. 20 manufacturers worldwide have agreed to make automatic braking as a standard feature on all cars by 2022. Toyota's plan of introducing these systems is way ahead of this deadline. Hopefully, some of the cars from Toyota's Indian line-up will also get this feature with its introduction in the international markets.
