Recently, 20 of the world’s leading automakers came together to make a pledge that all of their vehicles would have automatic emergency brakes by 2020 – but that’s still not good enough for Toyota, who just pledged to have this feature as a standard across their lineup by the end of 2017.
Toyota announced that 25 of Toyota and Lexus models will get the safety feature, which uses a camera and a laser beam to determine when a car has stopped in front of it. The feature automatically applies the brakes if the driver does not.
This sort of automatic emergency technology is the kind of system that can truly save lives – not to mention the many fender benders avoided. Leave it to Toyota to pledge this feature as a standard before any other major automaker.
