PASSENGER & PEDESTRIAN PROTECTION

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters

LANE TRACING ASSIST (LTA)

Lane Tracing Assist is particularly helpful when cornering or driving on motorways. It is also capable of providing assistance when driving around bends with a tighter radius than the previous system. If the system determines that there is a possibility your Lexus departing from the lane, it will switch to departure prevention control, providing support for returning your car to the centre of the lane.

AUTOMATIC HIGH BEAM (AHB)

At night, Automatic High Beam uses the same windscreen-mounted camera as Lane Tracing Assist to automatically switch to low beam when it detects the lights of either an oncoming or preceding vehicle. This reduces the chance of accidentally dazzling other drivers should you forget to switch off the high beam headlights.

PRE-COLLISION SYSTEM (PCS)

Whether driving in rush hour traffic or through quiet residential areas, you’ll be thankful for our latest Pre-Collision System that’s fitted to the UX, ES and RX models. Using millimetre-wave radar combined with a stereo camera, it now even detects pedestrians at night or bicycles appearing suddenly in front during daytime. If it senses danger, you receive a visible warning in the Head-Up Display so you can take appropriate measures. And if you still don’t take action, your Lexus will increase brake pressure to help prevent a collision.

DYNAMIC RADAR CRUISE CONTROL (DRCC)

Driving on busy motorways or when commuting to work, it’s easy to oversee that traffic ahead has slowed down. For this reason, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control uses a millimetre-wave radar sensor and a camera to detect the vehicle in front and maintain an appropriate distance. If the vehicle in front comes to a halt, the system will stop your Lexus. When the vehicle moves off again, your Lexus will start off and continue following. This also makes driving less tiring in situations requiring frequent starting and stopping.

ROAD SIGN ASSIST (RSA)

Created to help you drive more safely, particularly on unfamiliar stretches of road, the Road Sign Assist (RSA) system recognises traffic signs and provides information via the multi-information display. When linked to Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, the car’s speed even adjusts to follow the speed limit recognised  by RSA. RSA identifies all important road signs and warnings, including electroluminescent and flashing signs.

LANE DEPARTURE ALERT (LDA) WITH LANE KEEPING ASSIST

Long drives and new routes require the highest level of concentration for drivers, and that’s where Lane Departure Alert is on hand to support you. This suite of innovations includes Steering Assist, Lane Keep Assist and Vehicle Sway Warning, to keep you in lane and present in the moment.

BLIND SPOT MONITOR

Blind Spot Monitor increases your agility on the road, so you’re always prepared for the next manoeuvre. Blind Spot Monitor gives drivers the most accurate impression of other vehicles’ positioning, to enhance your driving perception and free you to enjoy the smoothest lane changes.

LEXUS PARKING ASSIST

Parking presents its own specific safety challenges, with many collisions occurring at low parking speeds. The Lexus Parking Support Features are designed to protect your vehicle and other road users from every angle, by alerting you to hazards the moment they manifest and improving your ability to react.

ADAPTIVE HIGH-BEAM SYSTEM (AHS)

Adaptive High-Beam intelligently enables and disables individual LEDs within each headlamp for precision control over the distribution of light. The system uses a camera on the top of the vehicle, to detect light from vehicles in front and smoothly illuminate the road ahead, while avoiding preceding or oncoming vehicles with pinpoint accuracy.

LEXUS CODRIVE

Lexus CoDrive brings together our most innovative driving enhancements and places the driver in control. Incorporating Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, Road Sign Assist and Front Cross Traffic Alert, Lexus CoDrive is designed to make every drive safer and more enjoyable, while providing clear information about the status of driving support via multi-information displays. In the Lexus LS, Lexus CoDrive now features Lane Tracing Assist to keep you on track, even when road markings are not visible.

FRONT CROSS TRAFFIC ALERT

Protect your vehicle from crossing traffic at every busy junction. Front Cross Traffic Alert detects both vehicles and bicycles passing in front and alerts the driver through the Head-up Display, before activating a buzzer if a collision is anticipated.

PRE COLLISION SYSTEM WITH PEDESTRIAN DETECTION

Our Pre-Collision System has been enhanced for the the Lexus LS with world-first technology. PCS now incorporates a Front Lateral Side Pre-Crash System to defend your vehicle from diagonal approaches, and Active Steering Assist to change course when braking won’t avoid a collision. Other road users are also better protected than ever before, with an advanced Pedestrian Alert which also detects cyclists and night-time pedestrians.

ROAD SIGN ASSIST (RSA)

Created to help you drive more safely, particularly on unfamiliar stretches of road, the Road Sign Assist (RSA) system recognises traffic signs and provides information via the multi-information display. When linked to Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, the car’s speed even adjusts to follow the speed limit recognised  by RSA. RSA identifies all important road signs and warnings, including electroluminescent and flashing signs.
