- Takes control of the vehicle and clears it from impending crash by either steering clear or accelerating out of the path 

- The technology will be shared with other automakers


In an effort to deliver safer cars in the future, Toyota MotorCorp has developed the automated safety system called the ‘Guardian’, which prevents the car from crashing. The technology reportedly takes control of the vehicle and steers it clear from an impending crash. Interestingly, the technology is also reportedly capable of accelerating out of the path of an oncoming vehicle. Gill Pratt, chief executive officer of the Toyota Research Institute stated that the automated safety technology will be available sometime in 2020.


The Japanese car manufacturer will also share the technology with its rivals and other automakers via licensing or purchase of whole systems. The announcement was made by the company at the Consumer Electronic Show 2019 in Las Vegas. In the long run, the company is also reportedly working on a driverless technology called the Chauffeur which will be introduced after a few years.
