Toyota System Can Sense Pedestrians

Building on already-in-use technology, Toyota has developed and improved upon technology that can sense pedestrians in a car’s path and stop the vehicle automatically. The new technology will be integrated into production in the near future.

Toyota's new system, which it says is a world's first, uses a millimeter wave radar and stereo camera to constantly monitor what's in front of the vehicle.
